At Elevate, our passion goes beyond our work in closing the gap that exists in the fashion world for tall women; it is much bigger than that. Our passion is to also give back to our communities and globally and one way we will do that is to raise awareness for children in need; in need of a loving home, in need of a meal, in need of a safe environment.
UNICEF estimated there are between 143 million and 210 million orphans worldwide. The current population of the United States is just a little over 300 million… to give you an idea of the enormity of the numbers…
We adore Elizabeth Bartholet, Law Professor at Harvard University and fierce Child Advocate. Dr. Bartholet made a statement about the personal adoption of two of her sons.
“But I could not have expected these two particular magical children. I could not have predicted the ways in which they would crawl inside my heart and wrap themselves around my soul. I could not have known that I would be so entirely smitten, as a friend described me, so utterly possessed. And I could not have anticipated that this family formed across the continents would seem so clearly the family that was meant to be, that these children thrown together with me and with each other, with no blood ties linking us together or to a common history, would seem so clearly the children meant for me.”
We encourage each of our fans to give back as well. There are so many ways to help. Every little bit counts. We will begin documenting our Child Advocacy efforts so that you can meet through a series of images, the children we have the pleasure of helping!
