Styles For Smiles: 2012

Saturday, February 18th 2012 @ Maki Strunc Studios

Fashion For A Cause: To Benefit Project Healthy Smile

High-Impact Runway Show, Private Shopping Experience, Interactive Photo Booth, Mini-Makeovers, Free False Eyelash Application,
Wine, Hors d’oeuvres & much more..

WHO:
Project Healthy Smile, Kokoon, Local Motion, Primp, Vanessa Zahid, and Artist Built will host a fabulous afternoon of shopping, pampering and fashion for a wonderful cause.

WHAT:
Fashion for a cause. Styles For Smiles will feature a high energy Runway Show showcasing colorful couture by Kokoon, Local Motion, & Primp, an exclusive private shopping experience at a pop up boutique, mini-makeovers & free false eyelash applications that guests can wear out on the town that night, an interactive photo booth, wine, hors d’ouvres and music by DJ Fatty – all for FREE.

Much more fun that shopping at a mall, guests can view fresh looks on lovely models and purchase them right then and there, in the Maki Strunc Studio modern pop up boutique. And most importantly, guests will shop for a great cause: A portion of the proceeds from the clothing and jewelry sales will directly benefit Project Healthy Smile, to bring oral health education and dental supplies to impoverished and underprivileged children globally.

It’s A Girl!

19 Oct 2011

Congratulations to our very own Co-Founder & Executive Director Michelle Patterson on the birth of her daughter Gwen! Our first baby has been born in Project Healthy Smile and how fitting that it is a girl! We already know that this little lady is going to be a true philanthropist and explorer just like her mother. Gwen has already fulfilled 2 missions to Haiti before she was even born! Michelle was such a trooper to travel to Haiti last December and again last May with Gwen. Michelle’s determination just set the precedent for what our new baby Gwen is going to do with Project Healthy Smile in the future.

We would like to say welcome home to our friend and humble humanitarian Danielle Nyquist. We met Danielle while serving Fondation Enfant Jesus in Haiti. Danielle was the creche’s social worker and a key correspondent for many families adopting from other countries. During this time Danielle had been a huge influence on so many children in need of love and attention. She also carried out the mission of documenting each child’s life through photos, reports and art. She wanted children who are being adopted to families outside of Haiti to have reference of their own childhood and history. We were thrilled to meet Danielle during our stay at FEJ. She was a wealth of knowledge about the community, and an incredibly intelligent woman. Now that Danielle’ position is over, she has come back to the US, and resides in Michigan. We want to not only welcome her home, but also give her a huge thank you for her compassion and generosity.

The following is a heart warming entry to Danielle’s final journal of her time in Haiti (click here to view journal entry).
