My world changed today. I was asked by the Oxfam Charity to style Kristin Davis' hair for the BBC news, and was excited to get to meet and understand the woman who in my perception was simply "the star from Sex and the City," however; witnessing her passion during BBC news this morning really sparked something inside of me. When she broke down in tears, talking about what she had experienced and how moved and deeply touched she was; “I feel shocked to see what these people have gone through. I met women who have walked for 20 days through the desert, with children dying on the way, only to arrive at a camp where there is hardly any food and water to go around. We must not allow this to happen in this day and age. Anything that you can give will help people who have absolutely nothing.”
This made me realise how quickly we need to act and compelled me to become involved in this great cause. More than 10 million people are suffering from the drought and desperate food shortages in this terrible world crisis. I know many of you will be thinking that this is just another charity asking for money but please, please watch the videos regarding this and the problems it's causing these innocent people. Any donation is very welcomed, we need to work together to overcome this terrible situation.
