In the fashion world where people are always trying to be noticed and express them selves through what they wear is very hard to express gratitude, compassion but overall love to others.
Unless we are in pain or in need, we take the chance to consider if the person next to us needs any help, better yet what about those people who might need but we don't even know? How and when can we help others if we are always immersed in our "own world"?
A couple weeks ago I received an invite for an event that as soon as I read it I wanted to R.S.V.P, yes it was a Coach launch party, but this time of a product with a remarkable cause behind.
Aquí nadie se rinde A.C (Here nobody gives up) is a philanthropic association aimed to help kids who suffer cancer. The origin of the association is so moving it actually made me drop a couple tears.
At age 8 Andrés Pérez Vidales was diagnosed with Leukemia, after 5 years of NEVER GIVING UP of difficult yet enriching experiences he asked his parents to create an organization to “take away the pain” to other kids that as him had gone through the same experiences fighting cancer, that’s how in august 2005 Aquí Nadie Se Rinde, A.C. was born.
For me the most amazing lesson is that Andrés even after what he went through he still cared about others pain, which makes me think, why I never even take a couple minutes in a day to help others? Why is it that we never “take away the pain”? When it actually just takes so little time or effort to make a change.
This amazing organization with the help of Coach (one of my TOP brands which by the way, has just won extra points with me as a client for collaborating in this great cause) and the gorgeous Mexican actress Ana Claudia Talancón had launched a beautiful special Edition bag designed by the actress, only 100 pieces are going to be sold and the 100% of the profits will go to Aquí Nadie Se Rinde, A.C.
So what are you waiting for? Coach besides being one of the must wanted brands for bags in Mexico and worldwide, now offers the chance to be fashion but at the same time help others, what else can we ask for?

Oh! And before I forget GRACIAS muchas gracias to my stylish sister who attended the event for me (I live at the moment in Italy, she covers me in the fashion agenda of Mexico City) and told me great reviews about it, also to my dear friend Monica Limon who was very kind to invite me to the event.
