LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 19, 2010) - There is no higher calling than aiding underprivileged children by donating ones time, capital, and effort. "Most folks think you have to give money to help out. But some of the most effective ways to help are through volunteering your time, work and effort," says international wedding gown designer Arefeh Mansouri. This philanthropic outlook was clearly present during the 2010 Oscars and the events surrounding it.

Present during the "11th Annual Children Uniting Nations Awards" were people from the entertainment industry, political pundits, and Fashion bigwigs including Arefeh Mansouri. The event focuses on benefiting foster children and at-risk youth. Each attendee gave in their own way and helped to raise money through auction, amazing musical performances, or in the case of Innovative Designer Arefeh Mansouri, the donation of her work. This included 100 incredible bags from her collection. She went on to say: "We have decided to continue to help by donating a percentage of proceeds from online sales." The bags will be available online soon at www.arefeh.com.
