It was a sunny but busy as usual afternoon in the Fashion Workshop and everyone was there preparing themselves for Vicky’s photo-shoot for the collectible bracelet. A little star, was incorporated in the design, symbolizing the light and happiness that Make-A-Wish’s work brings to the children. Our teacher and photographer Genevieve Manjari was setting up and Vicky was getting ready, when our guests from Make-A-Wish, Links of London and Folli Follie group arrived. The purpose of that meeting was so important that the place soon became full of warmth and peaceful smiles. Ms. Desi Dinou of Make-A-Wish Greece and Ms. Eleni Zigouraki of Links of London shared with us some of their thoughts about this important cause.
Links of London and Folli Follie group have always been very sensitive when it comes to children and charity, and this is the reason why we have been working closely with Make-A-Wish Greece for three years in a row. Caring about each other is one of the greatest things we can offer, especially in today’s society. Vicky Kaya’s sensitivities are what make her more than suitable as an ambassador of this extraordinary cause and this time, fashion and jewelry become one, for a greater purpose.
We wish that this star will bring hope to every child in need and make our dreams come true.

Links of London has been supporting our cause for the past three years and we feel over the moon about it because, especially in these days, any help is important. When Vicky helped us with a wish for the first time, we realized that she truly cares and she has the same values as a person that represent Make-A-Wish foundation. As an ambassador, she works really hard and it is amazing how many children’s wishes revolve around fashion. When they watch one of their craziest dreams come true, they get the strength and courage to believe that nothing is impossible, that they can do anything! And this is what Make-A-Wish is all about, “hope, strength and joy”!
