Welcome to my first Hope Village fundraising outfit post. I will be posting outfits for the next 105 days of my pregnancy. Since I was pregnant with Sophia I decided I wanted to do outfit posts of stylish maternity clothes for moms on a budget. I want to give maternity fashion advice and just overall fashion styling tips along with raising awareness for a mother/ child oriented cause that touched my heart. These photos were take by Mr. Olson right at my 20 week mark. We will have about 3 catch up posts then the photos will be in real time. We had a lot of logistical things to figure out on our end before we could launch the fundraiser.
After traveling to Egypt on three separate occasion I became immensely aware of the great obstacles facing street children in Egypt. This was especially apparent on my third trip with an eight month old Sophia. As a mother my heart went out to homeless mother's who find themselves facing great abuse on Egypt's streets, even after escaping abusive home environments. I am determined to bring awareness to this devastating issue so I have partnered in a fundraising campaign with the Young Mother's Shelter of Hope Village Society in Egypt. I will be posting 140 maternity outfits that I have made or thrifted or already had for the remaining 105 days of my pregnancy to provide financial support while bring awareness to the growing problems and social stigmas faced by street mothers.
I hope you enjoy this project and my outfits as much as I have been enjoying creating it. If you want to donate and enter to win a Christina Elaine bag at the end please click on the button in my sidebar or go the the campaign page.
I would like to give a very very special thanks to Rana and Rami who made the video and are in Egypt right now without them this whole campaign would not have been possible.
