In 2009, Houston’s own philanthropist and former top model, Elena Davis founded the I Am Waters Foundation. Since then, their specially branded bottles of water with words of inspiration have become a vehicle of hope and a means to physically hydrate tens of thousands of homeless people in Texas, Louisiana and soon to be Oklahoma and Arkansas. To date, I Am Waters will have distributed more than 2.2 million (recyclable) bottles of water. The brand is also sold through Whole Foods with 100% of the net proceeds benefitting the foundation.
The luncheon gathered some of the world’s top models including Rachel Hunter, Julie Anderson, Chandra North and Stephanie Romanov. It also honored Houston’s favorite, Lynn Wyatt.
Hats off to Elena Davis for showing us all that one person can make such a huge difference for so many.
