So when DailyCandy was called to really step up, we decided to join forces with Step Up Women’s Network, an organization committed to social change for women and girls. It sponsors community-outreach programs like Peace4Kids (which sends kids to camp) and raises awareness about women’s health issues (by raising money for breast cancer research and providing medical care). Its mentoring program pairs women with executives in their fields or with kids who need role models.
Volunteers include social workers, students, and members of the entertainment and media industries (yes, they really do exist). Which may explain why Step Up’s fundraising events include Vanity Fair in Concert, featuring Aimee Mann, Lucinda Williams, Rosey, and others on November 5 at the Wiltern Theater in L.A. (You can preorder tickets at ticketmaster.com.)
What does DailyCandy get out of this? Well, primarily a few parties, some new readers, and, best of all, that glow we get when we know we’ve tipped you off to something not only good but good for you.
