Where does the money go?

Within our work that we do, we support Love a Child and what beautiful work they do! Currently they are in the process of building 50 families that have been living in a cave since hurricane Matthew! Here is a family in front of their new home. We look forward to our next dress drive so we can help them reach their goal!

3rd annual dress drive

Sunday, June 25th 2017
Noon-3pm
Studio Salon
1135 Bannock Street
Denver, CO 80204
To benefit Love a ChildHope House

Circle of LoveThe Urban Angels are thrilled to present “Circle of Love” our 3rd annual dress drive to be held at Studio Salon in downtown Denver. The purpose of this dress drive is to not only provide hope, love and joy to little girls around the world in impoverished circumstances, but to provide fun and colorful dresses for girls to play and grow in. Financial gifts donated will be shared between Love a Child and Hope House and will provide food for families in need providing hope for a better future.

For most of these little girls, this is the only new dress that they’ve ever had.

“Hope and love are infused into these dresses and we will never know the full impact of the gift that’s been given,” says Mary Martinez of the Urban Angels.

Peggy Kastning and Mary Martinez, brains behind the Urban Angels, have been serving the homeless community around Denver and spreading positivity and light. After seeing a program about the needs in Haiti, they both wanted to get involved.  A major realization occurred. They could both help by making dresses for girls in Haiti, and continue to help families locally.

“It’s exciting to know that each one of us can make a difference in the world. With our love of sewing and our hearts for humanity, we can combine these two passions and help those less fortunate.” says Peggy Kastning of the Urban Angels.

The Urban Angels are two gals on a mission to do good, transform lives, and create happiness in the world. Through their annual dress drives and adventures to Haiti, they want to spread sunshine where they can and make this world a better place.

This event is free and open to the public. Your donations help to complete this circle of love. A food truck will be on hand to fill our bellies.

Our visit to the Jeffco Action Center

Today we delivered 55 dresses to Jeffco The Action Center and got to see all of the amazing ways they serve those in need in the Jefferson County area. It takes at least 80 volunteers daily to run this facility. Places like #Walmart, #WholeFoods, #TraderJoes, and #Sprouts donate to The Action Center so families can receive healthy food, clothes, and household items. We left so inspired!!!

Please donate! They are especially looking for children’s clothing and men’s clothing!

More dresses sold!

We had a bundle of dresses at the recent Fashion Denver fashion camp this past Saturday and many of the campers left with the dresses, supporting so many families through Love A Child! It is such a joy to see these dresses on our young ones and so much fun to see parents and grandparents buying dresses for their young ones!

You can continue to purchase dresses with 100% of the proceeds going to Love A Child at Fashion Denver’s office at Green Spaces!
