About Hope by KDO
In joining the fight against childhood cancer globally, Hope by KDO was founded in 2017 in New York by Glenroy March, Chief Executive Officer/ Founding Designer of House of D'Marsh Corporation, and in collaboration with two of Jamaica’s supermodels Oraine Barrett and Korey Rowe.
Cancer, Childhood and Hope
Cancer has certainly been a disease in various forms affecting individuals from diverse backgrounds. However, it has been pervasive in CEO Glenroy’s close knit circle, including having a direct impact on the families of Korey and Oraine. It made complete sense to adopt a cause that is close to my heart while being targeted to increase the likelihood of impact by choosing childhood cancer. Hope therefore acknowledges and grounds the reality that children are the future and that the fight against childhood cancer represents the preservation of that future.
Hope in Action
Hope by KDO’s mission is to raise awareness about childhood cancer, the devastation it can cause while highlighting the work of entities across the world boldly working to find a cure and/or improve the health of those affected.
Each year, Hope will select an organization from a different part of the world whose work is centered on childhood cancer, showcase their work and raise much needed resources over a period of six months to donate to that organization.
Raising the Funds for Hope
The House of Dmarsh has specially designed the Hope by KDO shirt collection that may be purchased in support of the childhood cancer cause. For each purchase, a portion of the proceeds will go towards the work of the selected organization for that year. Individuals may also look to donate directly including sponsoring the fundraising fashion showcase held annually.
