In one of the most inspirational and moving interviews you’ll ever hear, Mary Alice Stephenson, GLAM4GOOD Founder and the official “Mother Teresa of Fashion,” teams with Patrick Shaner, U.S. Communications Expansion Specialist at H&M, to give back to poverty-stricken children in Detroit.
From the first question to the last, Mary Alice, a salt-of-the-earth person and part of the “Who’s Who” in the world-of-fashion passionately explains the genesis of GLAM4GOOD, the foundation’s mission, strategic collaboration with key fashion partners, and her special relationship with H&M.
Listen as Mary Alice brings those in the studio to tears describing how GLAM4GOOD assists in providing clothing to a multitude of individuals in need from natural disaster survivors, injured veterans, and those caught in the cycle-of-poverty, to victims of domestic violence. However, as Mary Alice can personally attest, managing a nonprofit like GLAM4GOOD requires an army of volunteers, partners, and financial support to make a meaningful impact.
Enter H&M, as Mary Alice describes, it was “divine intervention” when the company contacted GLAM4GOOD to collaborate nationally.
H&M donated $100,000 worth of new clothing in just one day at the Detroit event! That’s commitment! While the donation was substantial, the genuine goodwill for the community, the company, and H&M employees is incalculable.
So, Fashioncast fans, listen and learn about what really matters from Mary Alice Stephenson, the industry’s preeminent leader on fashion philanthropy. WARNING—tissues required!
