We recently posted an album on our Facebook page with all the shots from the recent Twestival Beirut breast cancer fundraiser (read our full presentation here too). Hope you had a chance to check them out and vote for your favorites!
Below are a few of the people who wore the pink wigs best that night:
Recognize some of these friendly faces? One Wig Stand would like to thank each and everyone one of you who rocked the pink wigs at Twestival. Thanks for the support!
A few weeks ago, One Wig Stand was asked by the organizers of Twestival Beirut to give a short presentation about what we’re doing to raise breast cancer awareness here in Lebanon. The event was a successful fundraiser supporting a local breast cancer organization Faire Face and we jumped at the chance to take part in such a noble cause.
When it came time to plan my 10 minute presentation, many ideas ran through my head for how I would approach it, but the one that stood out was one where I actually did very little talking. Rather than simply talking about what we’re doing with One Wig Stand , I thought I’d switch things up a little bit and let the wig stand do the talking. She is after all the inspiration for the project and the focus of our “Let Your Wig do the Talking” campaign.
We didn’t get a chance to tape the interview for those who weren’t there, but thought of something that the Twitter community would appreciate (this file is a bit long, but don’t worry – it’s a quick informative read):

Both @onewigstand and I would like to thank all the @twestivalbeirut organizers for putting this wonderful event together (cc @sanatawileh and @sdarine) as well as a special thanks to @dimaboulad for being the voice behind @onewigstand during the live presentation. We experienced a few technical difficulties, but hopefully we got the right message out

A big thanks to the Twestival Beirut organizers for putting together this wonderful event and for raising awareness about breast cancer in Lebanon. You always have our support
This year’s festival is supporting Faire Face, a prominent breast cancer support group in Lebanon. The organizers have scheduled a fun night to promote awareness while raising donations for Faire Face that will go into psychological help for women with cancer as well as free mammography for women.
The event is taking place tomorrow evening, Thursday March 24, at Tawlet in Mar Mikhael. The tickets for the dinner have been sold out but you still have a chance to attend the post-dinner party.
Keep updated about the event on Twestival Beirut’s blog and Facebook page.
See you there for a great cause!
(Psst-psst: Our little wig stand will also be making her first on-stage appearance in a short presentation during the dinner)
