A simple drink of water can bring joy to a persons life, in this case, an entire village. Encouraged by this belief to make a difference in someone’s life, 16-year-old Jasmin Aleman, along with some help from the Palm Springs Fashion Council, organized “The Living Waters Charity Fashion Show” with the purpose of raising $2,500 to build a well in the developing country of Kenya, Africa.
The show was held at the Star View Restaurant in Palm Springs with members from the Cathedral City High School Key Club whothey helped set up tables and serve water to the guests.
“It turned out great,” said Aleman, “and I feel so proud of myself for I accomplishing this. The thought of people not having the most basic need in life was killing me.”
It turned out to be a huge success, with almost a hundred people attending the extravaganza. Although the final amount of money raised is unknown at this point, it is a sure bet that someones life has been changed by this kind act.
