Fashion Show Raises Money for Craniofacial Defects, Brings Awareness About Human Trafficking

In Atlanta, during the SHINE Fashion Show designers

from Atlanta to Africa will come together on October

6 at the The Infinite Energy Center, 6400 Sugarloaf

Pkwy in Duluth, GA 30097 for an evening of fashion,

food and fun featuring an Afro-Indian themed fashion

show. Tickets are $25, registration is open at www.

lovewithoutreason.org under the Events tab.

The SHINE fashion show is an event that benefits the

Chattanooga-based nonprofit, Love Without Reason

(LWR). Love Without Reason is active in the fight

to end human trafficking, and serves three different

vulnerable populations. Children born with craniofacial

birth defects are at high risk for being sold into human

trafficking networks. Women rescued from the redlight

districts of Mumbai are at risk for revictimization

if they are not able to sustain themselves with a steady

income. The children of these women who are raised in

the brothels are at risk for continuing the cycle of slavery,

simply by living in the brothels.

Love Without Reason has partnered with hospitals in

Zimbabwe and in India to provide nearly 500 surgeries

for children and adults born with craniofacial birth

defects, such as cleft lip, cleft palate, ankylosis, or

micrognathia. These lives will never be the same again.

Yet, in Zimbabwe alone, there is a five-year backlog of children waiting for their surgery.
