In a remarkable event that showcased the intersection of philanthropy, sports, and art, Paulina Harasimowicz, the esteemed Harvard University student and recipient of the ShareLove.Fund International Women’s Day Prize 2022, passed the torch to this year’s Global Citizenship Award Honoree, Florentina Hanisch of Brazil. The prestigious award ceremony took place at ShareLove.Fund’s Third Annual Cook for a Cause Event: Paella Night, held at a private residence in Rye, New York.
Harasimowicz, recognized for her outstanding commitment to social justice, humanitarian aid, and women’s empowerment, became the first college student to receive the Global Citizen Award. Her exemplary leadership on a global scale, coupled with her compassion and extraordinary aptitude, earned her this coveted prize. Graciously lending her title to the deserving Hanisch, Harasimowicz commended the World Champion for Women’s Platform Tennis and former top-ranked women’s tennis player in Brazil for her philanthropic endeavors and unwavering dedication.
The evening was not only an occasion to honor these remarkable women but also an opportunity to celebrate art and its power to inspire change. ShareLove.Fund’s 2022 Artist of the Year, MAIZIANNE, generously donated two original acrylics on canvas artworks that captured the triumphs and tribulations of women worldwide. These thought-provoking pieces served as prizes for the Cook for a Cause Event, further amplifying the message of empowerment and resilience.
In an inspiring statement, MAIZIANNE shared her deep-rooted commitment to supporting women and children in need through her art. Her belief in the strength and potential of those who have faced hardships resonated strongly with ShareLove.Fund’s mission. MAIZIANNE pledged to donate 100% of the profits from her art sales to the organization when customers mentioned ShareLove.Fund at the time of purchase. This philanthropic collaboration aims to provide the necessary tools and resources to women seeking to rebuild their lives and support their families with the dignity they deserve.
The ShareLove.Fund Paella Night served as a testament to the organization’s commitment to social impact, uniting individuals from different backgrounds in a shared vision of a more equitable world. Through their invaluable initiatives and collaborations with exceptional individuals like Harasimowicz, Hanisch, and MAIZIANNE, ShareLove.Fund continues to create positive change and uplift those in need.
