Their dedication to their respective organizations, and their sensational sense of style, make each of them beautiful inside and out. Just like many of you reading this, they make a positive difference in the world.

    I recognize Kiyomi from a show featuring band camp kids at Mosswood Park in Oakland! Not to sound creepy or anything. :) Awesome!

    Also love the charity support. I’d love to see this being an on-going thread (non-profits need all the love and support they can get). It would be great if you could also support organizations that work with the homeless and people with mental health needs.
