12 Feb

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Trafficking never stops. Hearts never stop breaking. Fairfund never stops mending those hearts.

On Thursday night, February, 10 (just counted days before Valentine’s) JewelGirls mingled together at OneLounge DC. There was jewelry sales party where guests could pick a gift for their valentines, enjoy cocktail specials from “One Lounge” and cupcakes from “Hello, cupcake”, or make a sweet valentine card at the craft table. JewelGirls’ celebrity spokeswoman Gabrielle Christian was also on site, what excited girls the most – they watch her show!
