In Texas it’s hot, really hot. So much so that Evan Sparks is encouraging friends, via Facebook, to keep an extra case of water in their cars just in case someone needs a refreshing drink. Bravo, Evan!
But in the Chubut Province of Patagoni , a region stricken with scorching temps and poverty in Argentina, water is a scarce resource until now, cue Mr. Armani please.
Giorgio Armani and Green Cross International are expanding their charitable arms with new Acqua for Life projects in Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal, China, Bolivia, Mexico – and for the first time – Argentina. Because not having water is not an option.
Acqua for Life is a humanitarian campaign on a global scale that was created in 2011 by Giorgio Armani. Even at the ripe age of 80, Armani couldn’t ignore the sufferings of others. Not only has he lent his brand name to the cause, he’s also creating some stylish charitable products for us as well.
Take a look and at how you can give back with style this summer. But remember like the Bible says,” Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He takes pleasure in), a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7 AMP
1. With the purchase of Acqua di Gio limited edition fragrance Armani will donate 100% of the profits to UNICEF Tap Project 4. But hurry, this offer ends June 30th.
2. Create awareness with #1DayOn10Liters Challenge. Acqua for Life is challenging everyone to help spread the word about the importance of clean, safe water – to try and live on just 10 liters of water for one full day. Share your story on social media. Together we can all achieve more.
Bite of the day: Just like people were made to matter, Armani believes our clothes should be “Made to Measure”.
Armani’s unveiling photos for the new campaign: a unique service designed for the most demanding customers: a tailored suit that follows the customer’s own body-lines, customized to suit individual tastes,” says Giorgio Armani. “I think of it as a tool for everyday use, suitable for all ages, all professions, in every part of the world.”
Actor Chen Kun said: “It’s a great honor for me to collaborate with Giorgio Armani on this project. Giorgio Armani Made to Measure is the presentation of tailoring art to demonstrate personality
and perfect solution to combining comfortable and confident.”
And we wholeheartedly agree.
Takeaway Bite: Whether you are a lady or gentlemen, a custom shirt is one of the staples everyone should have in their wardrobe year round.
Take a look at how the Bites of Style’s editor-in-chief is combining a custom men’s shirt with her favorite garments for a sizzling one-of-a-kind summer look.
“For some it’s the new normal, but I have always liked to shake things up with clothes.
Your clothes should b fun. I love taking classics and creating a new look!
God never wanted anyone to look a like. We are each unique and our clothes should be too. Always remember to b Inspired and b Thankful!”
With Love Brandy Sebastian
