The Love Ball Riviera 2013 is the fourth fundraiser for the Naked Heart Foundation. The past three balls were held in Moscow, London, and Paris. For the last 7 years, the NHF has been building playgrounds for Russian children in municipalities where the local authorities have not provided safe places to play. And another initiative of the NHF is to help decrease child abandonment, especially in situations where children are separated from their families due to disabilities or poverty. This is through their Every Child Deserves a Family Program.
When I was living out in Megion, Russia, my apartment was near one of the Naked Heart play parks, which was build in 2007. The colourful park does stand out against the dreary Siberian neighbourhood.
Judging from the trailer, it looks like the event will be lots of fun and most certainly a great success in meeting NHF's goals. I am looking forward to hearing the details from a very sweet insider who will be attending. Ahh to live vicarously through friends! ;)
Somehow I have a feeling that Grace Kelly would also be attending in spirit! And according to the NHF site, we non glamorous people can make donations to the cause...
