The Restoration Initiative (TRI) is an organization that it has been my joy to know and support. During their outreaches in India, the founders work with local artisans and buy the unique jewelry and scarves that they sell stateside through “advocates” who host socials, inspiring people to “Buy Socially, Restore Globally”. The purchase of one of these accessories supports American women who want to have a small local business, and supports countless women and children through TRI’s initiatives across the globe. On my trip to India last year I was able to visit one of the orphanages that TRI works closely with… Santvana Home, run by an incredible female doctor who quit practicing medicine to care for the children she takes in that are HIV positive. Here are a few of the little guys I was honored and humbled to meet.
At Santvana Home, the doctor loves them and gives them everything she can, these kids whose parents have lost their fight with AIDS and who know that they carry the same disease. The love and care there, across the world, is powered here, by us who have so much. TRI is doing something beautifully powerful, so when they asked me to help style their new Look Book, I couldn’t have said “YES” faster or louder… MUA, hair, styling and wardrobe by yours truly.
