Happy Sunday Everyone!!
Today’s outfit is all about Fashion with a Purpose!
Headbands of Hope and I have teamed up to not only promote these super cute handmade headbands, but also with every headband that is purchased, one is given to a child with cancer! How awesome is that?!
Around the same time Headbands of hope contacted me, a local Salt Lake City volunteer group invited me to attend and participate in a bike parade and 5k for a sweet little girl named Ruby, who was born with a large mass on the back of her head that resembled a tumor.
During a routine MRI scan this spring, a technician inadvertently captured the top of Ruby’s lungs in the image. A CT scan soon followed and it was discovered that Ruby’s lungs were full of tumors. She was given the diagnosis of Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma.
After hearing what Ruby and her family were going through, the community decided to round all their resources together to organize a bike parade and 5K run to raise proceeds for the Thackeray family.
The turn out was unbelievable! Many well known Utah shops donated 5 table full of merchandise and gift baskets ready for the Silent Auction!
There were so many good things to bid on! ( a dozen full of tamales were among the items lol)
Being a kids bike parade I dressed up as Snow White! ( because what little girl doesn’t like Disney?!)
For the Headbands of Hope photoshoot I decided on wearing this gorgeous gold plate headdress that has a diamond chain draped on the outside! A floor length sequin maxi skirt with my “Walking with Purpose” tee seemed to match the mission of Headbands of Hope perfectly!
I would totally check out their website and pick out headband and become a headband hero to a little girl battling cancer! It’s amazing to see what an impact a small decorative headband can have on a girl’s self esteem! >>>>Check out the Giving Gallery HERE!<<<
Because giving looks good on all of us!
