It's that time of year again... As Models Doing More gets ready to embark on a new adventure of giving... I want to thank family and friends who donated to the orphans in Sri Lanka.
So much has transpired in a year... I am beyond blessed to be surrounded by rays of light, beings that humble, and challenge me to my core.
3 exciting announcements I must share...
-We have partnered with some pretty amazing organizations. MDM has teamed up with Balanced Guru and we have created an organic skincare line made in Boca Raton, FL. Everytime a donation of $50 or more is made 22 children will be fed a weeks worth of food at the orphanage and the individuals donating will receive an organic raw sugar cane & coffee body scrub.
Currently we are offering 4 different organic wellness products ranging from $50-$85. Collaborating with such a talented team at Balanced Guru has been a dream come true.
The Line is called the Inner Bodhi Sri Lankan Collection by MDM

-MDM had the incredible privilege of being invited to the United Nations by the Ambassador of Sri Lanka for the Vesak Celebration. It was a joy for me to experience the celebration honoring the birth, death, and enlightenment of Siddhartha. Some of you may recall that Models Doing More was in Sri Lanka for Vesak last year and it is a beautiful time and festival of light. We are working hard to get support from the UN for our efforts on the ground.
-Perhaps the best part of this update is that Models Doing More has several Model Ambassadors who are joining us on our journey to Sri Lanka. We have collaborated with Volunteer Forever and the Ambassadors have fundraised their volunteer trip.
Our mission this trip: build a farm stand for the children at the orphanage so they will sell their produce.
Continue to teach English, bring food, and supplies. Our long-term goals are to teach the children entrepreneurship and provide them with a water sponsor. We are hopeful that we can collaborate with a solar paneled laptop company in the near future.
Models Doing More welcomes your donations and suggestions. We will be updating our journey via social networking, Facebook, twitter, and instagram... as well as via Go Fund me and Volunteer Forever.
Thank you to all who believe in our mission, our commitment to service, and providing hope for those who have been abandoned and forgotten.
