Leon-McCormack said earlier this week “she has been dealing with diplomats to help organize projects to assist in a rebuilding effort.” She has teamed up with some of the world’s high profile beauty and fashion colleagues such as Ted Gibson, Warren-Tricomi, Kissable Couture, Carmindy, Tracy Reese and Dana Gibbs — to serve as sponsors for “Beauty With a Purpose: ForThe Love Of Haiti “.Beauty With a Purpose: For The Love Of Haiti” is a two-day event she plans to hold during New York Fashion Week for editors, stylists, celebrities and designers. Each sponsor will donate items from their respective lines and proceeds from their sales will go to benefit a selection of charities. More sponsors are being courted to help fund the event, which will be held at the Bryant Park Hotel; the hotel is sponsoring one of the days. For more information, send an e-mail to

*Side/Random note* I want to thank my loyal brownsistas, for allowing me to express myself in celeb news and gossip in Adora’s Beauty Corner. However one of Brownsista’s main priorities in 2010 for Adora’s Beauty Corner is to provide you with updated beauty and cosmetic news specifically pertaining to our culture, and I am determined to accomplish that goal. Thanks for all of your support,
