Some more press on Free the Slaves Global Ambassador Katie Ford’s benefit event at Top of The Standard in New York last week. This round: InStyle and Tonic.com.
Stars Mix, Mingle And Bid to Free the Slaves
Michael Stipe, Helena Christensen, Selma Blair, Liev Schreiber, designer Nicole Miller and celebrity chef Todd English mixed and mingled at the Top of The Standard to raise money to help rescue the more than 27 million enslaved people worldwide this week.
The event was organized by Free the Slaves, a nonprofit that saves, rehabilitates and educates slavery victims, while also conducting substantial advocacy on their behalf. Donations from the evening will fund the charities various efforts like providing shelter for women who have been rescued from sex slavery, rescuing captive children in Haiti, Ghana and India as well as freeing entire Indian villages that have been in debt bondage for generations.
And in InStyle’s Parties! section, Selma Blair is shown wielding her bidding paddle (or is that a Japanese fan?) at the Free the Slaves auction.
So exciting to see the anti-slavery movement grow!
