Supermodels Raise Money for Solar Power

Supermodels. They don't just provide us with tabloid fodder and unrealistic beauty standards. They also provide us with solar-powered hospitals.


Supermodels. They don't just provide us with tabloid fodder and unrealistic body-image expectations. They also provide us with solar-powered hospitals.

One Fricken Day, a nonprofit started by model Elettra Wiedemann, has partnered with the Solar Electric Light Fund (a GOOD 100 organization) to provide clinics in Rwanda, Haiti, and other places with solar power. There's an online auction going on at Charitybuzz, to which 23 supermodels have donated gowns and other valuable things and experiences. If you like solar powered clinics, have a spare $2,000, and want a dress from Cristy Turlington's personal wardrobe, put in a bid.


Nice work, Elettra.
