It's Always an Honor to be Nominated...Even If You Didn't Know You Were!

Yay! It's always fun to see your company in the press, but it's a bigger kick when you get to see yourself! We all know what supporters EG is of Women, giving back and our support to the community around us and the one across the water. However I just work, it is what I do. I am proud to be part of a company led by strong and intelligent women, who push me to succeed and make sure the EG footprint left behind is a positive one.

As the writer Francoise de Motteville once said: The true way to render ourselves happy is to love our work and find in it our pleasure.

My Grandmother always told me she was and still is excited to go into work and make sure teh job gets done well... not just completed. This article really makes me happy and something that even though was a complete surprise ( thank you April) definitely pushes me to work harder!

Naomi May Have Recently Stopped Throwing Phones, But She Still Kicks Ass On The Runway

Hey All,
So thanks to the lovely Hofit Golan, we were proud supporters of Fashion Cares for Relief. What is Fashion Cares for Relief you ask? Good Question. This comes directly from their website: http://www.whiteribbonalliance.org/

who we are:

Welcome to the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood.

Every minute of every day, a woman dies of pregnancy related complications, totaling more than one half million women each year.

We are here to change that.

The White Ribbon Alliance is an international coalition bound together by a common goal: to ensure that pregnancy and childbirth are safe for all women and newborns in every country around the world.

Our coalition is 104 countries strong, full of men and women who are committed to our cause. But we need you to be even stronger.

We at EG know the affect first hand of what can happen, which is why the charities we choose to be involved with are those close to our heart. We want to be the change, we want to see in the world, instead of just chat about it. Elizabeth Grant has always believed in giving back which is why we established EG Cares, our Charitable Fund established to help support diverse charitable groups - meeting their requests with donations of money and/or product.

The site says: "play your part" which is something EG is proud to be a part of.
