MY NAME IS: Heide Lindgren.
I'M KNOWN FOR BEING:
A model and general do-gooder.
I'M HELPING TO LAUNCH:
Impact Garden! This sustainability and wellness charity event at Madison Square Garden—presented by Rebuild Globally with Modavanti and The Cordes Foundation—aims to utilize fashion to help bring an end to poverty.
The evening will start with a ticketed yoga session led by supermodel and yogi Angela Lindvall. Next, the court will open up as a shopping marketplace, featuring fifteen artisan brands from over seven countries around the world including Haiti, India, Kenya, Afghanistan, Colombia, Rwanda and Guatemala. The brands include Raven & Lily, All Across Africa, Parekh Bugbee, Callina, The Way U, Love Is Mighty, Deux Mains Design, Mercado Global, Zarif Designs, Sasa Designs, Soko, Kopal, Pima Doll, Indigo Handloom Inc. and Article22.
Guests can also win prizes worth up to $2,000 by participating in a shot competition for charity on the Knicks’ court, where they will be able to shoot alongside Knicks legends Larry Johnson and John Starks, and Kym Hampton from the NY Liberty. Global Fashion Exchange will also be operating their famous clothing swap: a sustainable and fun opportunity for attendees to bring in items of their own and leave with fresh pieces for their closets. For access, guests must contribute at least one garment in good condition to the common pool of clothing. VIPs will have access to the “wellb VIP suite” in the Legends Room, where the new wellness marketplace application will be providing massages, Reiki and energy healing.
