The Curves for Change inaugural event of 2012 was held on Tuesday evening in New York City and was, in a word, amazing!

“Don’t Give, Invest” is one of the eight line items in the manifesto of Many Hopes, a charity that one of our generous sponsors, Alexis Bittar, recently introduced us to.
At a fundraiser on Monday night in New York City, C4C’s board members Julie Henderson and Chella Ferrow (pictured) met Anthony Mulongo and Thomas Keown, co-founders of Many Hopes organization and were blown away by their passion to their cause: finding, rescuing, housing and educating orphaned and abandoned girls in Mtwapa, Kenya, and dedication to equipping the girls to be future agents of change in their community.
Bernadett Vajda, President of Curves for Change, gave an impassioned speech at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell imploring the mothers, daughters and others in attendance to exercise self-acceptance and strive to find their niche in life.
Known in the Massachusetts community for her work in politics before relocating as a model in New York City, Bernadett uses her fashion fame to garner attention – and a few blog mentions – for our organization. That is, after all, what C4C aims for.
An excellent blog article covering the event with a personal touch is found here.
Julie Henderson appeared on ANTM Season 17, Episode 6 alongside Nigel Barker and Brittny Gastineau for the “Charity Challenge”!
The models were asked to pose with football players while keeping true to their “brands”. In traditional Tyra style, the segment benefitted female-empowered charities including Curves for Change. Fierce and Love Tyra!
