The big day is just around the corner! The Emma Approved Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction for Human Rights is taking place this weekend, and we have a very impressive lineup to choose from. Click through for a small sample of the lovely, talented and socially-conscious people who are donating their time in support of human rights.
Don’t forget: if you are unable to attend the auction, the Emma Approved team is also participating in an online fundraiser to support human rights organization 27 Million. It looks like Mr. Knightley is going to win our friendly competition by a landslide, but we still have from now through this weekend to aim for second place.
UPDATE: We regret to announce that Frank Churchill had to withdraw from the event due to unforeseen circumstances. He passes on his apologies and encourages people to support the rest of the team in the auction, or donate in his name in the online fundraiser.
Emma Approved’s new mission to better the world is off to an audacious start with our next high-profile fundraiser: a bachelor/bachelorette auction to support human rights. Four members of our team – Emma Woodhouse, Alex Knightley, Frank Churchill and Jane Fairfax – will be participating to raise money for advocacy group 27 Million, in partnership with El Pozo de Vida, in an effort to fight human trafficking and modern-day slavery.
If you can’t attend the benefit, there’s still a way you can help. We’ve set up an online fundraiser with Everyday Hero, where you can make donations in the name of your favorite Emma Approved team member. The person with the highest total at the end of June “wins,” but all donations go toward the same goal – helping 27 Million raise awareness and advocate for victims of human rights abuses.
