Dear Friends, please join us in a VERY special cause.
As some of you may know, I am a representative for the Donate Life foundation, a foundation this is committed to spreading awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation. In doing so, I was an honored guest at their last charity event and offered up my styling services to the winning bidder of a raffled auction. As it turns out, the winning bidder happened to be the guest speaker, a beautiful girl named Kristin Molini who at the age of 25, has spent half of her life in and out of the hospital and has already received FIVE organ donations due to a condition called gastro-pareisis (paralyzation of all the organs in and around your stomach). Moreover, Kristin has not been able to afford jeans, shoes, or ANYTHING new in ages.
So on November 30th, Kristin and I will be spending the day together shopping and going around to designer’s showrooms to pick out a new wardrobe for her and give her the ultimate girl’s fantasy day. As such, we humbly ask of you, in support of Kristin, to either donate clothing/shoes/dresses/jewelry for her (if it is from your personal closet, you may ship it to my address), if you are a designer, she would love to come to your showroom too and really see what the behind-the-scenes world of fashion is like, or if you are unable to do either, a check, even for $5, written to the name of Kristin Molini, will help provide me with a budget to take her shopping. Whatever you can provide for Kristin, big or small, will make a huge difference to a girl who hasn’t had a meal in 9 years and lives off a feeding tube, yet is brave enough to tell her heroic story in front of large audiences in old clothes that barely fit her.
You may send any checks in the name of:
Kristin Molini and any packages or letters to:
Alexa Winner c/o Kristin Molini
304 Mulberry Street – Apt 2M
New York, NY 10012
Kristins special day will be documented on our new blog available by going to http://www.alexawinner.com/
, and all contributors will receive special recognition on the blog and a letter from Kristin herself. I really encourage you to look at her website, http://www.survivedfive.com/
, and if you are able and inclined, you can know that Kristin wears a size 7.5 shoe, is about a size 00 in pants, a size small in shirts, about 80-85 lbs, and around 5’7.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and I appreciate your support.
