LifestyleDamsel Diaries

Donate with Damsel

For the holiday season I am bringing to you the 12 Days of Damsel to give back to my readers, in exchange I ask for you to giveback as well and “Donate with Damsel.” 

In 2009, before Damsel in Dior, I went on a trip that was very outside of the box for me. After stalking a friend from high school on Facebook, I learned all about her charity trip to Kenya and went to bed that night dreaming of going. Long story short, a few months later I found myself boarding a flight to Africa and my life was forever changed. I went with the New Hope Initiative to volunteer several years in a row. Simply put: These are the types of people who make our world a better place.

You can read a post I wrote about my experience by clicking here.

If you have been reading my blog since the beginning you know that there is only one charity that I have supported since it’s conception. The reason for this, is because I truly believe in the good things that New Hope Initiative is doing in our world because I have been there, I have seen it first hand.

Below you can find a few {very old} photos from my trips to Kenya and Arusha with the New Hope Initiative family. It’s been a few years since I’ve been able to visit, but this holiday season I want to ask that you please Donate with me.

If each of my 345K followers on Instagram donated $1 each, we could raise $345,000 for this incredible organization. Even if it’s just a dollar, please add “Donate with Damsel” in the PayPal notes when you help us to give back this holiday season.

Thank you in advance for giving back with us this holiday season.
