London, UK (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Eva Alexander is known in London for its high quality designer maternity wear, but this luxury maternity wear company isn’t just another pretty face. When Eva Alexander was created, it was not only to bring beautiful maternity clothes to pregnant women but also to bring positive changes to people’s lives by giving back.
Eva Alexander has worked with various charities and non-profits since its inception. One of its most rewarding initiatives, however, has been working with Small Steps Project on a UK clothing drive to collect gently used shoes and clothing for children living on rubbish dumps in Cambodia and Nicaragua. Eva Alexander’s attention was then brought to Love, Light, Romania (LLR) where, again, there were children in great need, having been abandoned by their families due to AIDs.
“Providing for growing children and teenagers means there is always a need”, said Jane MacDougall, the founder of Eva Alexander, “it warmed my heart knowing that the clothes, shoes and toys we collected will bring smiles to these children's faces this holiday season and a big thank you to everyone who donated and made this possible!”
LLR was established in 1999 in an effort to provide a permanent and loving home for abandoned children and teenagers suffering from HIV/AIDs in the Sibiu and Tirgu-Mures (Transylvania) areas of Romania. LLR also functions as a community center and provides home care support. The community center provides a safe place where the children and teenagers can socialize in an open environment away from the scrutiny and disdain they typically receive from society. The home care aspect of the organization then attends to the general needs of individuals suffering from AIDs/HIV by facilitating the purchase of medication and food and organizing birthday parties in the family home to taking a dying child to visit a family member in prison.
With a “door is always open 365 days a year” approach to care and support, the LLR facilities are currently full, which means that they do not have anymore room to take in abandoned children and teenagers. They are currently looking for more donations and sponsors to be able to expand their facilities so that they can accommodate and support more children as they find their way through life.

Eva Alexander has committed to supporting non-profit organizations that make changes in other people’s lives by providing them with the necessities required to improve their standard of living but also by providing them with hope and a path to self-empowerment. Each time you wear Eva Alexander maternity wear you can know that you are helping make someone else’s life a little better, a little easier, a little safer.
