LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
LOS ANGELES, CA - Fashion with a purpose was the goal for Helena Cho, founder of Good Work(s) Make A Difference®. Cho came to the United States when she was 8 years old from Korea. She is very fortunate with the opportunities that were given to her here in the United States and has always “felt the need to give back.” Her philosophy is that “one person can’t do everything, but everyone can do something!” Good Work(s) Make A Difference® is a company created to promote a lifestyle of expressing essential virtues and wisdom through fashion in order to spread and elevate humanitarianism. Their stylish bracelets and other products soon to hit the market are popular among celebrities. Various messages imprinted on the products include “Speak Kindness,” “Be Courageous,” “Give Back,” or “Lead the Way,” all exemplifying the message behind the movement - be a catalyst for change. http://www.goodworksmakeadifference.com
Each year, Good Work(s) Make A Difference® identifies a cause to direct their passion and 25% of their net profits to. This year, their largest project is their partnership with PATH Ventures, in which Good Work(s) Make A Difference® and PATH Ventures will give 120 homeless families a home furnished with all basic necessities. “It is very difficult to acclimate yourself when you have nothing; our mission is to help people get settled into a “home”, a place of comfort and stability where they can begin to set a foundation for a brighter future.
Although the numbers for this project are ambitious, that is not what Cho thinks is the company’s largest accomplishment. “It’s what we do on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. The random acts of kindness we are able to achieve like setting up college funds for children who have lost their parents, providing school supplies to students who don’t have a pencil to walk through the front door with. We believe that if we do good things, others will too!” says Cho. Embracing the commitment to one random act of kindness at a time is achievable and it is Cho’s hope Good Work(s) Make A Difference® will help to spread the message of kindness to others spread through the United States and beyond.
“I’ve been blessed by this country and feel it is due time to pay forward the same level of opportunity that was given to me,” said Cho. “Each act of kindness might be a small one in the scheme of things, but in the lives of these people, it makes a huge difference! If we all just gave a little back, imagine the impact we could have on people in this country and around the world!”
In addition, Good Work(s) Make A Difference® sponsored a special event in coordination with Children Uniting Nations called “Day of Child”, a day of relaxation and recreation at a carnival for 1000 foster children.. In addition, Good Work(s) also hosted a Mother’s Day of Beauty for homeless women in coordination with PATH, providing them with access to beauty and fashion specialists, musical performances and catered lunch. Most recently, Good Work(s) Make A Difference® pooled their Hollywood resources to help students from Fairfax High School in Los Angeles experience their dream Prom. With the help of designers, celebrity make-up artists and Beverly Hills Hair stylists, these individuals were transformed from students to the prince and princesses heading to the ball! Their night was complete with designer dresses and tuxedos from stylists like Jessica McClintock and Go Suit, a pre-prom dinner at Lisa Vanderpump’s Sur Restaurant where they were photographed with the cast of Sur, the new Bravo Show, and enjoyed a ride to the prom in their stretch Hummer. http://www.goodworksmakeadifference.com
