Marielle Kerber about Love School:
Love School is a school for paperless children in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. For different reasons, the children have no birth certificate, and therefore no right to go to school. Some Catholic sisters took the matter in their own hands and started this beautiful school - Love School - to give these kids a chance to a sensible life.
In 2010, when I was working as a volunteer in Ho Chi Minh City, I got in contact with these children. They were absolutely wonderful - so happy and grateful despite their difficult situation.
I felt like I wanted to help out some more. Said and done - I designed a collection that I called "Must haves" and produced it in Vietnam. I invited my customers to an event and let 10% of the sales go to Love School. With that money, they could buy all the books to make a library for the children. I can not describe the happiness I felt, combining my work as a designer with charity like this. It was so easy and so little needed.
