A makeup artist I have known for a long time, Matin Maulawizada, created this charity in his homeland of Afghanistan called Afghan Hands. This charity helps to educate and help the women affected by domestic abuse and violence in Afghanistan. Pashminas and beautiful pillows were created by these Afghan women, to be sold to help them and their families survive from this horrific situation. Stars like, Claire Danes and Cynthia Nixon came to support , also their long time friend, Matin at the Longchamp store in Soho. Longchamp and Afghan Hands are an amazing fusion of materialism and altruism. It’s events like these that make you think how truly lucky we are, and how we all need to help, even if its one person at time.
