Fashionable Action: Covering the Housing Works Event for A&U Magazine

Fashionable Action: Covering the Housing Works Event for A&U Magazine


Housing Works. As a New Yorker (and not only) you must have heard of them, the thrift shops and coffee/bookshop in Manhattan. Maybe you stopped by to check out the goods displayed in their windows, maybe you opened their doors to take a closer look, shop or donate. Housing Works has centers not only in New York City, but across the country and around the world. The nonprofit helps two communities--the AIDS and homeless communities--providing its clients with vital support and resources.

This past December (12/2010) I had the opportunity to revisit Housing Works and cover its, Fashion For Action event, for A&U Magazine--America's AIDS Magazine. While at the event, I got to meet and talk to a few celebrities--an award-winning actress, designers, models, organizers and many more--all supporters of Housing Works. To hear what they had to say, you can check out my article, "Fashionable Action," published in A&U.

Thanks for reading. Thank you, A&U, for the opportunity.
