We’ve posted before about the work that the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness does for the community in Toronto. In addition to raising awareness, the CCAA has a number of great programs to help survivors of abuse get back on their feet. Ellen Campbell, founder of the organization, came by to present an award of contribution to our designer Jane Ip in recognition of the support that she has given the CCAA.
On top of being a beautiful person who contributes her energies to a cause that’s benefits the community immensely, Ellen is also extremely stylish! We admire her for her big heart, as well as great sense of style. For many of us who have become used to thinking of fashion as accessory, it’s heartening to be reminded being put together and looking good more than just frivolity. It’s a sign of self-respect, and empowerment.
