Runway Moms For A Cause. If you’re looking for something special to do for Mother’s Day weekend, I suggest you check out “Runway Moms for a Cause” (RMFC), a fashion fundraising event by L-Shandi, an award winning fashion house.
RMFC is a runway show for philanthropists to take a stance on an often overlooked issue, and lend a helping hand towards a solution. The second annual, black tie event will focus on “Power Moms” raising funds for local non-profit organization called “KIDSAVE” in their mission to create change – so forgotten orphanage and foster kids grow up in families and connected to caring adults. By 2020 KIDSAVE’s goal is to connect 1,000,000 orphans and foster youth to parents and mentors to enable them to experience love, hope and the opportunity for a successful future.
Runway Moms For A Cause is part of a 2014 Mother’s Day Weekend celebrations, this is their second annual event and it’s being held on Friday, May 9, 2014 at Renaissance Washington, DC – DuPont Circle Hotel. It starts at 7 p.m. You can purchase an advance ticket by clicking here

Here is a little bit of information about Kidsave International
Kidsave’s mission is to create change so forgotten orphanage and foster kids grow up in families and connected to caring adults. Children cannot raise themselves. Without families, the odds are against them growing into productive citizens and the loss to society is devastating. In the summer of 1999, Kidsave gave 177 older orphanage children summer vacations in the US with American families — and 97% were adopted. It was a miracle for these children and for Terry and Randi (founders of Kidsave) it provided the basis for creating Kidsave’s Family Visit Model, a program that has now been successfully tested in Russia, Colombia and the USA as way to help older orphanage and foster kids find parents and committed mentors. In the years since 1999, Kidsave has helped over 12 governments and 3,000 children. Yet countless millions languish in orphanages and foster care. Kidsave’s goal is to change that — so that every child has a permanent family. Kidsave’s goal is to find families and permanent connections for one million children by 2020. http://www.kidsave.org
