A Rose to help the Children of Guatemala

I first started working with Developing Faces in 2014 after meeting a member of the organization through a friend. I went along on the first mission in March 2015. Our team completed 28 complicated surgeries on children and babies with cleft palates, bilateral cleft palates, cleft lip, and ear microtia.

The mission was life changing for me- I now understand why some people get so passionate about the work they do for a charity. The children were absolutely adorable, and the parents’ gratitude was sincere and overwhelming.

A mission: an important goal or purpose that is accompanied by strong conviction; a calling or vocation.

  I decided to design a scarf exclusively to help fund Developing Faces’ mission. The ‘a rose to help the children’ scarf was made with 10% cashmere to make it extra soft, and 90% modal to make it airy and lightweight.

The scarf was inspired by the floating rose petals that I saw while I was visiting the Santa Domingo Monastery in Antigua, Guatemala.

My favorite colors to wear with the scarf are classic black and white:

100% of profits from sales of the scarves will go towards funding the upcoming surgeries the organization will be doing in Guatemala. You can find the scarf on the Kate Stoltz website
