STANDSEVEN AND WOFH TO HOLD FESTIVE POP-UP EVENT IN AID OF SHINE ON SIERRA LEONE AND EBOLA

Standseven and WOFH are joining forces this Christmas to provide the perfect opportunity to purchase beautiful gifts and support those affected by the terrible Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone.

The event hosted by award winning celebrity stylist and Shine on Sierra Leone Goodwill Ambassador - Tara Smith, will take place at private members club the Library Wednesday 17th December, 4pm -7pm.  

Shine on Sierra Leone (www.shineonsierraleone.org) is an organisation that integrates sustainable healthcare, education, microfinance, and development as four parts of a greater whole to ultimately create the future of an innerdependent Sierra Leone. For nearly a decade, Shine On has been an incredibly effective organisation at facilitating innovative and socially progressive partnerships between Sierra Leoneans and the west. Since the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, Shine On has worked tirelessly to help those in need and ultimately put an end to this disease for good.  Tara will talk about the vital work Shine On is doing and offer an insight to the Ebola crisis. 

STANDSEVEN is an online destination offering online trunk shows of design products that create positive social impact. They collaborate with renowned artists and designers to create limited edition pieces, such as the stunning ‘Stool 7’, created by architect, designer and OBE, David Adjaye. Not only are the stools functional pieces of art, but each one sold pays for one Ebola response kit for a family unit in Sierra Leone.

WOFH scarfs and blankets are hand-woven by generations of master craftsmen and women in Sierra Leone. Weavers purchase sweaters that have been donated from around the world; each one is unwoven, re-spooled and woven into strips using traditional looms. As a result, each creation is a one-of-a-kind combination, a global piece of art. These will be on sale at the event with 20% of sales will be donation to the Shine on Sierra Leone charity.

Please join us for a glass of mulled wine at this festive event, and give generously to help Shine on Sierra Leone support the Ebola crisis this Christmas.

With thanks sponsors Cash & Rocket and Tara Smith, and especially the Library for the generous use of their stunning venue.
