Philanthropy x Fashion ♥

When I first stumbled upon this video, I was so captivated by the rawness and beauty of it. And then I read the story behind it. Obakki, a local Vancouver boutique, had started this foundation to use fashion and the creative arts as an outlet to bring education and water to the people in Africa. 

I thought this was just another amazing way to incorporate a love for fashion, and philanthropy. It's been something I've been wanting to be involved in, but haven't had the creative outlet to do so. But it's definitely encouraging to see this in my city of Vancouver! Check the video out, it's worth the watch.

Wow, I definitely need to check out this place sometime!!

Thanks for sharing that verse with me. My tattoo says "Long life is in her right hand" "in her left hand are riches and honour" it's talking about wisdom, from Proverbs 3:16. I have a few tattoos I got 2 done at Floating World and 1 done at Osmosis. Both are in Richmond. I would recommend Osmosis over Floating World, they did a much better job! What are you planning on getting?

Hope you have a good start to your week!
