Have you always wanted to hobnob with celebrities while, at the same time, doing your part to save the world? Well, now’s your chance!

On Saturday, October 29, the Ian Somerhalder Foundation is hosting Empoweresque, a tasteful, burlesque-themed costume ball and fundraiser in Atlanta, and Ecorazzi is excited to be a media partner for the event. Not only will the event benefit ISF programs, but it also aims to empower women and garner more youth involvement in conservation.

So, what exactly is Empoweresque? According to the website:

Empoweresque is a celebration…

An awakening of the uniqueness and power within women.
If you think being sexy is akin to throwing on a pair of heels, think again…
It’s about the woman within knowing that SHE has the power to change the world.

It’s not what you look like.
It’s not about your size, age, colour or faith.
It’s who you ARE.
It’s your passion, your strength and your ability to inspire and lead change not just within yourself, but within others.
It’s about awakening your divine femininity and becoming an “Empoweress.”

This awakening within yourself will forever change you, and uniting empowered women will forever change the world.
Historically, we’ve seen phenomenal female change makers. These women “stand up and stand out”, but why must they stand up as ONE woman when we can “stand up & stand out” together to radically transform the world as one UNITED divine force?
What are you waiting for?

Join us as we unite empowered women who will forever change the world.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

Why we SHOULDN’T genetically ‘disenhance’ animals

Creating bandaid “solutions” to ethical problems we’ve created doesn’t address the issue at hand

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
