Featured Charity: Aid for the World

Aid for the World is a not-for-profit organization designed to bring support for communities in crisis in the United States and abroad. This is done by strategically identifying areas in need - locally, nationally and internationally – and then implementing plans for long-term growth and change.

Aid for the World will be hosting their first annual gala benefit "Leadership In Action" with featured Keynote Speaker General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.). He will speak on "Diplomacy: Persuasion, Trust and Values" and AID will be honoring His Excellence President Peirre Nkurunzia of Burundi.
With only 1000 seats available, this unforgettable evening will also have performance by the Grammy and CMA award winning Peasall Sisters and The Orphan Unification Drummers of Burundi. Orphaned by war, twelve children come together, each from a different province of the nation and create drum music as part of a unification, reconciliation and healing.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION

Featured Young Philanthropist - Chudney Ross

Meet Chudney Ross, the beautiful, multi-talented youngest daughter of Diana Ross. 

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA 
Alma Mater: Georgetown University (Double majored in English and Fine Arts)
Occupation: Writer, TV Host, Entrepreneur. I recently signed my very first book deal with Harper Collins for a series of Middle Readers (Chapter books with pictures for 8-10 year olds). I’m also in the process of starting a really cool child-centered business with a friend from college. Our goal is to bring the fun back to reading while supporting literacy and giving back to the community at large.
Charities You Feel Closest To: Any and all children’s charitable causes. Notably Teach For America, Cure Kids Cancer, & Keep a Child Alive.
Recent Events You've Been To: I recently attended NY Fashion Week and walked in Zang Toi’s Charity Fashion Show benefiting Live Strong, The Lance Armstrong Foundation. During LA Fashion Week, I attended The Wet In Cement Fashion Event sponsored by Saks and benefiting Operation Smile.

Next Event On Your Calendar:  I wish I could attend the upcoming Angel Ball in New York. I went last year and it is such a wonderful event for such a worthwhile cause. My grandmother died of Breast Cancer and so I am a huge advocate of Cancer charities as well. Denise Rich is an amazing woman raising money and awareness. With woman like her, a cure for cancer is not far out of reach.
Favorite Book of the Moment: Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Favorite Restaurant: I don’t have a favorite restaurant BUT I love food! Italian food, Thai food, Ethiopian food, steaks, even fast food, but no sushi! I’m not a big fan of fish. 
Favorite Bar or Lounge: I’m pretty low key. I love a margarita with friends at Cabo Cantina in LA or wine at Pastis in New York.
Item You Can't Live Without: My beach cruiser (its pink with green flames) and lip-gloss.
Your Favorite Date Spot: On a blanket at the beach, under the stars with a bottle of wine and some cookies.
Paris, London, Milan or NYC?: I love New York and London. I lived in Paris when I was young, but have never been a big fan. I think I need to go back as an adult. I never spent much time in Milan. 
Uptown or Downtown Girl?: I grew up on the Upper Eastside of New York, so I’m probably an Uptown girl, but I would like to think of myself as a hip and cool Downtown gal. 
Union Square or Central Park?: I love Central Park (so does my dog Peanut). Did you know there is free WI-FI through out the park? You can sit anywhere and peruse the Internet! LOVE IT! 

Go-To Designer: Alice and Olivia. I love love love dresses and Alice and Olivia makes some really cute ones!
Shoes or Bags: Shoes shoes shoes! You can get away with wearing a cheap dress if you have a killer pair of shoes. My new favorite are patent leather Louboutins that my sister gave me as hand-me-downs!
Most Dangerous Store: In LA, Fred Segal and in New York, Bloomingdales.
Favorite Channel/TV Show:  E! Network.  I love to keep up with all celebrity gossip! 
Other Hobbies and Fun Facts: I’m an outdoorsy girl. I taught skiing in Aspen, CO for 7 years. While I was there I had the opportunity to work with A Grassroots Aspen Experience, a program designed to save lives by empowering young people to make positive choices. I taught skiing to at-risk teens from all over the United States. I will never forget my involvement with this wonderful program. I also have a PADI certified Master Scuba Diver. I’m obsessed with my two 2 dogs Peanut and Brody. Peanut has an agent and was recently on Ugly Betty. I am also thinking about training him to be a therapy dog. He is the real star of the family!
