The Wine club that gave Project Flamingo wings

It really is thanks to the support and endless energy of seven phenomenal women who we may call friends, that Project Flamingo took flight in 2010.

I barely voiced the idea of pamper packs and catch-up surgeries over a glass of spectacular Chardonnay and these girls jumped on their phones and laptops to make things happen: from organizing flamboyant cocktail parties to raise funds to assaulting their friends and families with heartfelt pledges for contributions, my passion soon became their passion. It was one of them that serendipitously sent my email pledge to the AmaBele Belles – an impulse email that has had an enormous ripple effect. I can never thank them enough…

And for those who wonder where the name Project Flamingo comes from: here is a confession: it just really sounded like the name of an uber-cool cocktail during one of our wine club get-togethers!
