Looking for missing kids in Miami with Leo Casino, Ric Globos and Laurence Gartel.
The amazing Leo Casino
Dec 21, 2012 My Mission tonight was to supply 100 warm blankets for 100 homeless souls!! I want to thank everyone who was part of my mission. To you Belinda thank you so much, I love you. Please love one another and help others to rise to the higher levels, simply by pouring out love. Love is infectious and the greatest healing energy. Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.!! With love, Effi
“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”
Rehearsal for for The Big Fashion Show ''Independence on the Run March 3, 2013. Children and adult with Disabilities we all deserve a chance!! Independence on the Runway will be on May 18th at the Hilton in Fort Lauderdale on 17th Street. 3pm till 6pm. We are all very excited!
Feeding and helping the homeless.
Thank You to two beautiful people, David Langschwager and Moise Brutus. For spending the day with me painting together. Doing art was so much fun. I always said "Art is the best medicine". Art is the only way and the healthiest way to express yourself. To all you parents out there, the best gift you can ever buy your kid is a paint brush and some paint. Moses is a triple amputee and nothing will stop him from expressing himself, True Art. David has down syndrome and is one amazing painter!!! Can't wait for the next art day together!!! Love You, Effi — with Moise Brutus and David Langschwager.
Independence on the Runway "No Limits" provides people with disabilities the opportunity to showcase their creativity on the runway. It's about our people, not the fashion!
Going to visit some of my beautiful friends tonight, like I do so many times at the homeless shelter in Hollywood. What a warm and loving welcome I got. I just can't describe in words what it does to my heart Every time I am around them, I ask myself what kind of world are we living in with so much greed. Some people are fighting to have an apple computer and some will fight to have an apple to eat. Please don't turn your back, please be more compassionate to the poor and the disabled. It will give you so much joy and so much pleasure. Every life deserves a certain amount of dignity, no matter how poor or damaged the shell that carries it. " Its my mission in my life". All I want is to reach out and touch another human being, not just with my hands and my art, but with my "heart.". With love, Effi XO
Once a week I open my home to kids with disability doing art, they are amazing!
Today, it was my pleasure to bring some of my art and to share with all of you what I love so much to do and believe in. It's the power of art the power to create. The positive affect it does to our society thank you so much. Me with my art at Las Olas Riverside hotel June 15, 2013.
Today look who will join us at art fun day Irwin "The General" from the hit TV show ''Tanked'' from Animal Planet. Lets see if he can paint!!!
Two things that I love to do the most creating art or creating joy for others, so what better place than giving joy to the homeless, spending Saturday night with my beautiful friends giving them something to eat giving then some of jewelry that I make. Is The Ultimate Joy the happiness on their face lights my heart up“There is no greater joy, Nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone’s life. as a human i am so thankful that i had the tools [compassion] to build a pair of eyes in my heart !! I believe the world is one big family, and we need to help each other. There are always certain items the shelter will need on a daily basis… Coffee and Coffee Cups, Towels and Washcloths, Men’s Clothing, Toothpaste and Toothbrushes, Socks and Hygiene Kits.
