Our Georgia NonProfit Insurance Problem Solvers are happy to hear about the success of last Sunday’s fundraising event — featuring one of Atlanta’s very own , Vern Yip!
Atlanta interior designer Vern Yip, cast member of “HGTV Design Star” is best known on the show for critiquing interior design concepts. However, this talented designer has more than color pallets, interior layouts and furniture on his mind… and most importantly, in his heart.
Yip contributed to hosting the UNICEF Experience this past Sunday, which is “an interactive event” giving guests a “taste of what children in more than 150 developing countries deal with every day.” (AJC, HGTV)
In addition to his successful career, Yip adopted two young children and is currently a UNICEF ambassador. The design-mastermind helped organize an annual fundraiser here in Atlanta along with Rebecca Gupta (Sanjay’s wife) and founding co-chair John Terracino. (We have heard it was a great success!)
“I have such a wonderful life,” said Yip. “I get to take my kids with me when I travel. I get them up in the mornings and don’t have to stress about health or food or water. I realize that’s such a luxury we take for granted.” (AJC, HGTV)
UNICEF programs improve water, sanitation, education and health for kids.To support this wonderful organization, visit www.unicefusa.org. The first event last year was located at Lenox Square Mall and raised over $500,000!
