One thing I do love to see the most in SL are the events centered around a cause. We should all give back to those who are less fortunate and I am pleased to announce that one of my favorite designers, Haute Couture, is participating in a very worthy cause. The EB Awareness Event has been created to help support Epidermolysis Bullosa. Epidermolysis Bullosa is a very rare genetic connective tissue disorder that affects 1 child out of every 20,000 births (that means about 200 children a year are born with EB). EB is actually a group of disorders that share a prominent manifestation of extremely fragile skin that blisters and tears from friction or trauma. Internal organs and bodily systems can also be seriously affected by EB. I personally do not know anyone with this disorder and I pray for those who are affected by something so horrible. 50% of all the proceeds that Haute Couture receives during this even will be donated to the Debra of America foundation. If you would like to learn more about this foundation and what EB is you can visit their website here. The event is lasting from April 28th – May 9th. Please take the time to support such an important issue.
For this photo, I am wearing the Haute Couture Hope dress in blue. The dress is available in Blue Pink and Purple. Also, check out Cosmopolitan Sales Room for some other amazing designs. The shoes I am wearing are a release from HOLLYHOOD and are the Katrina wedges in white. These are a medium slink add on.
Please take some extra time out of your day to visit the EB Awareness Event and if you feel it in your heart to donate a little extra then please do so. You can also stop by Cosmopolitan Sales Room to find extra accessories!! Have a blessed shopping day 🙂 TOOTLES
