Kids Fashion Week Network So-Cal is Making Progress

| April 5, 2021 | 0 Comments

The Kids Are Back…and they are going to be stronger then ever. The kids around us have been hit hard this past year, and our hearts go out to all the parent’s homeschooling them. They have been subjected to screen learning and very little in person socialization. And though it has impacted all the sports, hobbyists and arts activities, we are excited to know that the kids of California will soon be returning to their normal lives.  As we prepare for kids to go back to sporting events and their extracurricular activities, Kids Fashion Week (KFW) Network also got a boost to get actively involved in the community.

This past year, KFW So-Cal had the opportunity to be involved in three community projects: a toy drive and giveaway event in December, and two trash clean up events.  Both were very successful. Our latest event, this past March, had a total of 40 volunteers/families that formed teams to participate and win a “pot of gold” prize that included gift cards to local eateries and cash prizes for picking up the most trash in two hours.

These community events make it possible to demonstrate to our kids the importance of giving back to their local neighborhoods. Similar to our nonprofit organization, generously giving of one’s time and resources for a greater cause is rewarding, and can lead to a “ripple effect,” creating generosity among other residents, thus resulting in more community offerings.

In keeping with its outreach efforts, KFW So-Cal experienced its first virtual model forum which formally introducing our fabulous model coach, Selina Hall. She spoke about her journey and the drive it takes to be the best. Model Rajanee Wright also spoke on body confidence, and Michael Cox, publisher of Black San Diego Magazine, gave our aspiring models an inside look at all the things that go into being a success. It was rewarding feeling to have the kids on the call to start our networking efforts on the West Coast.

KFWDMV will be having its “One Nation” Fashion Week activities on Sunday, April 18. All of us are extremely excited about this event. Soon So-Cal FW will be announcing upcoming, in-person events. Fortunately, there are many good things forthcoming for our kids. Please stay tuned and follow me, the So-Cal director, @stylishly_positive and @kidsfashionweeknetwork to learn of future fashion events for the kids.

Representatives of the Lemon Grove Lions Club and Kids Fashion Week Network participate in a community clean up effort.

On the topic of outreach efforts, I was invited to be a guest speaker on “The Eric and Lizz Show” to speak about KFW, and the importance of youth mental health during these challenging times. It allowed us to get the word out about our model forum and other future events for the kids in Southern California.
