Great ideas to recognize philanthropy as chapter event and even opening meetings with a chapter project: including the France Chapter which received the 2013 Chapter Philanthropic Award, for their program to help young girls with positive self esteem, "Responsible Beauty”. The New York Tri-State Chapter supported Gilda fund NY and also has an Image Scholarship at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC as a Chapter Project. The Washington DC Metro Chapter, collected dozens of shoes for Soles 4 Souls® which supplies shoes to 127 countries. The chapter also donating suits and jackets for Suited for Change which since 1992 enables low-income women to increase their employment, job retention potential and contributes to their economic independence. Individual project ideas abound. The 2013 Individual Philanthropic Award went Abigail Areas DeLeon for her work with "Braveheart”, inoculating over 50,000 women against cervical cancer in the Philippines.
