samasource give work gala

Tibi dress, vintage clutch, Alex&Ani bracelets
Samasource is an awesome nonprofit that invented microwork, the new way to fight poverty by enabling capable, marginalized people to complete digital tasks in some of the world's poorest places. Last Friday Nick and I went to their annual Give Work Gala at Mezzanine. I borrowed a long Tibi dress from my sister Maggie and talked my hair dresser into giving me a simple updo after my well-timed haircut appointment. The highlight of the gala was a performance by Les Nubians, an Afropean duo I've loved since college. Thanks to Samasource and our friends Jill and Leila for throwing a great party for a great cause.
