When you think about the facts, the small fish eat the plastic > the big fish eat the small fish > the humans eat the big fish.  

The food chain adds up to plastic in our bellies.

Know what’s made of plastic? Poopie diapers!

Curves for Change

Congratulations to my model friends for putting together a press-filled & celebrity-studded launch party for the new Curves For Change  non-profit organization! You are all beautiful inside and out.

Founded by Supermodel/Supermom Kate Dillon and now helmed by models Bernadett Vajda + Julie Henderson, these models use their beauty and visibility to make a positive impact on women’s causes like ending human trafficking. As a member of the Board Of Directors, I contribute by creating the C4C website and we all aim to be positive role models.

Major props to whomever won those $25,000 Victoria’s Secret Runway Show tickets at the C4C silent auction- WOOT!
Looking forward to the next event…
