Miss America, Nia Franklin walks the runway today, in this weeks opening event for the 2019 NYFW. For the first time, 25-year old, Nia Franklin walks alongside Life Size Robots. This rare found idea was put to life by CRF proud supporter and talented Taiwanese Fashion Designer, Sami Chen of HappyFish Fashion. Todays show is in honour of The Cristian Rivera Foundation and all proceeds will help further our search for a cure for DIPG.
The Cristian Rivera Foundation has amazing news to share! This years’ Cristian Rivera Foundation’s Humanitarian Award recipient is Brandon Stanton. Brandon is the founder of the incredibly popular Humans of New York! Earlier this year, Brandon ran a story and a subsequent fundraising campaign to benefit Dr. Mark Souweidane. We were impressed with Brandon’s dedication to humanity. We are honored that Brandon accepted the award and we look forward to hearing him speak at the Gala.
Humans of NY has been doing a 2–week series on pediatric cancer (patients, families, providers) at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Mark Souweidane was interviewed for the series on Tuesday and his segments were posted on Wednesday. It has been an amazing phenomenon for two straight days now – literally hundreds of thousands of comments, likes, shares, and a veritable outpouring of support and love for Mark and his work. You really have to see it to believe it – and it’s truly amazing to read the comments and see the project through the eyes of people hearing about it for the first time.
