wow ... the world of wearable art.

each year, this contest is held in wellington and is a showcase of designer talent from around the globe. this year, Justine and I went along to see what the fuss was about.

i'm glad we did, it was pretty damn amazing. there is so much talent and so many different ideas out there that the show was kinda mind blowing.

the best part about it is that half the cost of the seats we were sitting in is donated directly to the neonatal trust here in new zealand. this is a good thing. the neonatal trust has helped us in the past and with the money that comes in from wow, they can continue to help families of prem babies.

it was a FANTASTIC performance, and we are definitely going again next year.

on a more local note, with Harlow being so prem and in hospital for so long, Caiden had an idea. He suggested to his teacher that Discovery School raise some money for the neonatal trust. well, the school council decided that this was a worthy charity and they raised the money with stalls. parents donated stuff to sell and then bought it back again, or bought other peoples stuff and ended up raising TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS!! that's my boy... that money will go to help other families who need it.
