In 2015, we celebrate 10 years of creative action. We celebrate the 168 students and teachers – from middle school to graduate school – that we nurture and inspire through our education programs. We celebrate the 268 fashion, accessory and textiles designers and artists that have shared their vision and dedication to sustainability, as well as the 345 models, photographers, hair and make-up artists who have donated their time and talent through our 24 catwalks and 112 photo shoots in Bogotá, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New York, Paris, San Juan, San Francisco, St. Louis, and of course Washington, D.C. We celebrate the 94 companies and organizations who have sponsored and supported our work. We celebrate 10 years of being the first and most prominent all-volunteer driven non-profit organization that raises awareness for initiatives that encourage and support creative, effective, and sustainable means of challenging poverty.
