Marie Claire’s Women of Style & Substance in conjunction with our 20th anniversary saw our previous recipients teamed up to hold a series of fun days out for two children’s homes. The result was Marie Claire’s Big Day Out, four days of sharing, outdoor activities and a whole lot of fun!
There are few things that bring more joy to the world than that of the sound of happy children’s laughter. Over two weekends in May 2014, Marie Claire added a little heart to our annual Women of Style & Substance (WOSS) collective by sparking the Big Day Out charity initiative. The idea behind this was to celebrate our 20th anniversary with a twist and to do something that is true to Marie Claire’s ideals of being beautiful, inside and out.
The Big Day Out charity initiative started with inviting 20 inspiring and beautiful ladies who have all taken part in WOSS to come on board and help organise a fun and meaningful day out with children from two orphanage homes based in and around Kuala Lumpur, namely, Angel’s Children’s Home and Saravanan Caring Home respectively. These 20 ladies then divided themselves into groups and set about organising a day out which included a visit to fun and exciting venues such as a petting zoo, the bird park and even a baking class!
It is our hope that with the Marie Claire Big Day Out initiative, we not only helped spark a relationship between the 20 WOSS ladies and the homes, but also highlight the true heroes of this project, the caretakers and founders of the underprivileged homes.
