Jennie Garlington (shown here with daughter Hope) is truly worthy of the Haute Spot! Not only is she a busy mother to her three beautiful children; Anna (7), Hope (4) and Peek (2), but she juggles serious efforts to help improve our world. From previously producing documentaries at CNN in the Environmental Unit to all of her volunteer work associated with the Turner Foundation, Captain Planet, The Lexington Foundation, and many other amazing organizations, Jennie is one dedicated haute momma to be admired.

Hope Unlimited is just another way Jennie is giving back to society. This venture began as a way to financially support children's charities. She has the opportunity to make gorgeous clothing and support children's causes around the world - all the proceeds from Hope Unlimited are donated. If you haven't seen the
