Hands of a Hero Foundation Annual Charity fashion show: Fashion against Poverty, will be taking place on Saturday, May 04, 2013 at 6:00pm. The event will be held at Creatures Creating Art Gallery: 822 Dundas Street W, Toronto, Ontario.
Poverty transcends borders; its passes waters that bridge continents. It encompasses the earth much like the air that we all breathe. Hands of a Hero Foundation recognize that the poverty pandemic is far more than the shoe less children in Africa. Poverty is in our backyards, our neighborhoods, in our cities. Realizing that the problem is deeper than hemispheres is the first step to creating a solution. Self awareness and Education are key in fighting this pandemic and it is up to us to make sure we help those in need.
But just like poverty, Fashion also, transcends borders. It defines a people and creates an awareness of self and culture whilst beckoning others to realize its beauty.
Hands of a Hero Foundation – Fashion Against Poverty Gala is meant to create an atmosphere of enlightenment and beauty as it brings forth the various fabrics, styles and customs of the different continents many of us call home.
