One of my favorite places to hang out on my own or together with the family and kids is South Coast Plaza. I love shopping in South Coast Plaza stores as there are both high end and budget friendly brands I grew to trust.

Of course, there is a wide choice of dining options and lots of places to eat with kids. But most of all I love South Coast Plaza events where you and your kids can have tons of fun.

The mission of the event was to draw people’s attention to various charity organizations that assist families in need with providing shelter, meals and educational tools.

Families Forward at Festival of Children
Volunteering and Fundraising Opportunities in the Orange County.

Festival of Children at South Coast Plaza aimed to focus on challenges children may face and to involve individuals, businesses and organizations in supporting various initiatives by volunteering and fundraising. Families Forward also took part in organizing the festival. This non-profit organization is committed to assisting homeless families and families in difficult life situations that may become homeless. It is supported my local community and runs a range of projects that aim to provide food, school supplies, diapers, hygiene products and more.

Canstruction Event Invitation

I think it is important to organize such events to draw attention to problems people with limited income confront with. It’s also a great opportunity to learn about interesting programs run in the community. For example, I discovered that Canstruction, an annual Orange County design contest will be held through September, the 25th. And the competition is sponsored by such companies as Freeman, CrispImagine, FlourCares and NAC. The participants will compete for the award in a range on nominations, including Best Original Design, Structural Ingenuity, Best Meal and Most Cans. If I were a designer I would definitely take part in it!
