The Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award and the Audrey ballet flats

Comments Off on The Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award and the Audrey ballet flats 11 December 2006

A while ago, when I mentioned that audreyhepburn.com had updated, there was mention of UNICEF’s annual Snowflake Ball. Since 2004, the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund has given an Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award to a deserving person at this ball, and this year the recipient was Amy Robbins. Amy created the Mercury Fund, which helps UNICEF gets funds as early as 24 hours after an emergency, anywhere in the world. You can read more about the event through UNICEF’s site, and you can read more about Amy here. Also, the UNICEF snowflake is changing a bit — it’s going to do its part to raise funds for the charity.

The first clip is of her auditioning for a solo piece at a party, and the second is her dancing later on in the film while her sister secretly watches.

I’m sorry it took so long to get the contest going. I was out shopping around for the book itself (Treasures), since Amazon didn’t have it in stock as of 3 in the afternoon. (???) I got to look over the book at some leisure, playing with all those wonderful inserts they’ve put in and ogling the pictures. Ooh, someone is going to be very happy when they win this book! To try your luck, just go to the contests page and leave your name and email address. The winner and runner-up will be notified via email once the contest is over and they will send their shipping information then. Winner and runner-up will be chosen at random — out of a hat, if you must know.
