Fashion & Compassion

Many thanks to Dep magazine and the Le Club, which hosted a charity auction and cocktail party in Hanoi for Thien Nhan on Friday June 20th. The beautifully-organized event was attended by dozens of guests, including many models and women in gorgeous dresses--much to Thien Nhan's delight. Larger than life posters of Thien Nhan adorned the Le Club, and a video showed his progress over the past two years.

As well as raising VND50 million (about US$3,000) for Thien Nhan's upcoming trip to the USA, the Dep party brought fresh attention to our fundraising efforts. There are only six weeks to go before Thien Nhan will travel to Dartmouth, NH and Chicago for urethral surgery and prosthetic care!
