This is a philosophy I agree with as a designer. I think that fashion is such a popular art form that I wanted to use it to help others. This is why I started Strut for Strength, not only to provide young Houston-area designers with important opportunities to show off their talent, but to help those in need by supporting a charity. I hope that Strut for Strength will be able give young designers an important outlet to further their careers and spread love and help make the world a better place. 

Thank You

The dear jack foundation

About Dear Jack Foundation: Founded in 2006 by musician and leukemia survivor Andrew McMahon, and headquartered in Denver, CO, the Dear Jack Foundation (DJF) advocates for and supports initiatives that directly benefit adolescents and young adults (AYA), ages 18-39, diagnosed with cancer. The foundation supports organizations and provides programming that address the unique challenges the AYA community faces during and post-treatment. Through outreach, collaboration, and focused initiatives, DJF works to create more positive health outcomes and improved quality of life for all young adults in this fight. Dear Jack Foundation is a national initiative with programs in Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Scottsdale, and Boston.
