Urban Angels at Fashion Camp: July 23rd

We’re thrilled to be partnering up with Fashion Denver for their fashion camp on July 23rd at Green Spaces. We will be leading a creative activity working with the campers between the ages of 5-15 on making journals.

We feel that writing is such a great way to process life and share life’s journeys and we are thrilled to take these kiddos on an adventure to make a fun journal! These journals will spark creativity in our future writers!

We’ll also be reaching out to the fellow fashion campers and collecting clothing and school supplies. We’ve had several donations in the past and to see these kids hearts light up when they knew their clothes were going to a good cause, really makes our heart joyful. Fashion Camp

Two Denver women make a difference locally and internationally, dress by dress

UrbanAngelsDenver, CO (June 1st, 2016)-Showers of Blessings, the 2nd annual dress drive for Haiti and the Jeffco Action Center, takes place Sunday, June 12th 2016 from noon-3pm at Studio Salon located at 1135 Bannock Street. 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 expand their positivity and hope.  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 2nd annual dress drive will work in 2 ways. Attendees that come to this free event can purchase a dress for the little girl in their life for a suggested donation of $25.00. Or attendees can purchase a dress in their name that will be donated to a little girl at the Jeffco Action Center or in Haiti. 100% of the donations will go directly to Love A Child, Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit humanitarian organization, serving the needs of children in Haiti. The dress drive will feature a runway show featuring kids in the community, light snacks and a chance to win gift certificates to pedicures, style & blow dry, restaurants, or a dress of choice.

“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.

Between Peggy and Mary, over 100 dresses have been handmade using bright cheery colors and accents that make any little girl smile.

“I have never seen such creative dresses before and knowing that two women are making these dresses in their spare time and donating 100% to charity, is incredible. The design captured my attention and the charity aspect made it a no-brainer.” Says Jeremy Klammer founder of GoFit Media.

“These dresses are perfect for my two nieces!  Knowing that I was able to help families in Haiti makes this purchase even more meaningful.” says Margaret Williams who purchased the dresses at Fashion Denver’s office in Green Spaces.

Showers of Blessings is free and open to the public.

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.
