100 Million Strong
Mission: To promote and financially support those with special needs in local communities nationwide by hosting engaging and unifying events.
Goal: To celebrate those with special needs and galvanize the local community through engaging events and charitable contributions.
Portfolio of Charities: 100MS believes there are a myriad of charities worthy of support on both a local and national level. Instead of competing with these admirable organizations our events intend to be a “rising tide that lifts all boats” in the special needs community.
How: 100MillionStrong will begin by hosting Special Needs Fashion Show in a 10-city tour to highlight that beauty comes in all forms. Each show will raise money for one local and one national charity.
Event Series: Shows will be hosted at shopping malls which feature the retail brands that have sponsored the national tour. Models will be invited from the special needs community and will be given gift certificates from the local retailers to select clothing for the runway show.
