Last Friday, I had the pleasure of meeting model, television host, author, and philanthropist, Petra Nemcova. The beautiful femme, both inside and out, fashioned a vibrant tangerine frock while making a personal appearance at Bloomingdales’ 59th Street location to celebrate the Happy Hearts and Clinique partnership.
Happy Hearts Fund is a non-profit foundation dedicated to rebuilding schools and restoring hope in the lives of children after natural disasters. To date, Happy Heart Fund has worked in 14 countries, including the US after Hurricane Katrina, and is currently active in Thailand, Indonesia, Chile, Peru, Mexico, and Haiti. They have rebuilt over 70 schools and benefited more than 40,000 children and 337,000 community members.
Nemcova is the founder and chair of the global charity, which she started after surviving the horrific Tsunami which devastated Thailand in 2004. In addition to giving the press and Bloomingdales customers a glimpse into the Happy Heart Fund story, she also introduced Clinique’s new Happy Heart Fragrance. She kindly signed my bottle, which now rests on my vanity topped with my collection of perfume. With each purchase, money will be donated to Petra’s charity. There’s also a Happy Heart T-shirt, available at Clinique.com for $16, and $5 from each sale will also benefit Happy Heart Fund.
So join Petra and Clinique to help bring happiness to children around the world, and treat yourself to a heart-filled treat along the way!
