Spinnaker and Eva for 'Christmas at Gaslini Children's Hospital'
Claudio Betti, the owner of the distinguished Ligurian boutique, speaks: I met Kendell thanks to a dear mutual friend and her story struck me. Kendell and her partner Mattia, both internationally renowned models, moved to a characteristic Ligurian village, Pieve di Teco, to be closer to Genoa and especially Gaslini, where their little girl, Eva, was born and operated on at birth by the Little Hearts’ Gaslini team.
Kendell's mother had previously bought their house in Pieve di Teco over the internet all the way from New Zealand and renovated it with the love and respect that nonnationals have for this beautiful country. Little did she know that one day it would be a cradle for her fourth granddaughter.
Kendell and Mattia are extremely grateful to the team at Gaslini and had started a collection of gifts to donate to the children of the hospital. From our meeting came a feeling that something more important could done, a real project, so Kendell and Mattia participated with their expertise in a fundraiser photoshoot for Spinnaker. During the holidays Spinnaker Boutique will use its social media and e-commerce to promote the EVA for Gaslini GoFundMe donation page amongst its international followers, customers and local residents. The target is € 5,000 but we hope to be able to exceed it; benefactors, friends, acquaintances and even New Zealand relatives will thus have the opportunity to feel an active part of a beautiful love story with a happy ending. A Christmas story that warms the heart, or rather the little heart, that of little Eva.
