RAMP FOR CAUSE – A beauty pageant of different kind!

25 children from care centers and community in Chennai got their share of limelight when achievers across the genres along with the celebrities from kollywood walked the ramp hand in hand with them at a charity fashion show held recently at VGP Golden Beach and Resort.

Conceived by Raindropss, a youth based social organization well known for spreading social awareness messages through entertainment and media, organized its first edition of Ramp For Cause, a charity fashion show of a different kind presented by Naturals Hair and Beauty Salon and Sathyabama University. Oscar winning music composer A.R.Rahman’s sister, Music Director and playback singer A.R.Raihanah also the Goodwill Ambassador of Raindropss presided over the charity show in which the education of the children for the academic year 2020-21 were sponsored and they flew from Chennai to Coimbatore for a day trip.

Children from Sevalaya, CHES, Seers Girls Home, Anandam Education Center and from the community including a visually challenged and a transgender student were groomed by the experts of Naturals Hair and Beauty Salon and costume’s were designed and sponsored by Styl boutique. The ramp walk was Choreographed by fashion choreographer Karun Raman. In the opening round 25 children from care center’s walked around the ramp introducing themselves while in the second round, the privileged children joined hands with less privileged children in the ramp walk to showcase no difference between them and finally, both privileged and less privileged children walked around with an achiever. Rationale behind this project is two, firstly as these children walk the ramp with confidence, they will not only feel special but also happy that their efforts on stage are helping children like them get access to education and also experience their time flying in an aircraft and secondly they get an opportunity to meet and walk along with the achievers whom the children and common people can take inspiration from, after all inspiration is caught and not taught; This event was executed by Sapphire, the new brand and event management company in the city. 

Children are our greatest treasure and they are our future. The ramp walk and flying experience will remain ever in their lifetime and get an exposure of an outside world. Raindropss believes that an excellent groom of children is a combination of knowing the world around them, exposure and to seed the good values. This initiative ensured that these kids took back the inspiring values and cherish-able memories for their lifetime.

Special thanks to all our sponsors and partners.
