FUNDRAISER FOR CAMBODIAN HOUSE BUILD
A Kilworth based business and leadership coach, who has spent her life working with people to help them make a positive difference in their life, is taking her approach further afield and will partake in a house build project in Cambodia as part of Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village Project.
Kerry O’Keeffe, who lived in Australia for two years before returning to Ireland will travel to Cambodia on December 6th with her friend Emma Bird. The Avondhu spoke with Kerry to find out more about her impending trip to Cambodia.
“I chose Cambodia as Emma asked me to go with her. It is a global project and she is travelling from Australia to work on the house build. I have never been to Cambodia before so I am apprehensive and excited about the trip all at the same time. We will be building on a location just outside Phnom Penh.”
Kerry, along with a host of friends, family, guest speakers, boutiques and supermarkets has organised a fundraising event in the Fermoy Education Centre on Sunday, November 21 from 2-6pm.
Titled ‘Style is for Life not for Christmas!’, the event is focused on women and aims to help them improve their self confidence, provide helpful tips on how to look after their skincare and a stylist who will help the audience identify their body shape, style and how to dress for it.
The event enables women to feel more positive about themselves, more confident in how they look and how to look after themselves.
All Seasons, Fiona Turley, Vanilla and Orla Murphy Jewellery will all be showcasing their work and models will show you how to dress for your shape and how to put a capsule wardrobe together through shopping locally. The event promises to be an entertaining, energising and fun afternoon helping to make a difference locally and globally.
Tickets can be purchased from the participating boutiques and the Fermoy Education Centre at €20.
According to the 2009 Unicef report 40% of Cambodians live on an average of $1.25 per day.
Habitat for Humanity’s aim is to assist 10,000 low income families out of slums and squatter settlements. In preparing for her work in Cambodia and to help raise funds for the project Kerry’s aim is to make a positive difference to all the ladies in Fermoy, so come along for some style advice and tips on Sunday, November 21.
