More than a month ago, tragedy struck Japan. Millions of properties and thousands of lives were lost, and a multitude of people went and are still missing.
I feel guilty for being quiet about it. Frankly, I was really at loss for words regarding what happened and couldn’t figure out a thing on how to help. I know the delay is inexcusable, but I’d rather be late than never present.
Chictopia, an online fashion community similar to Lookbook.nu, has recently started a fund-raising campaign to help the victims of Japan tragedy–the Wear Red Wear Hope campaign. The campaign encourages Chictopians like me to wear and upload a photo wearing any outfit with a hint of red.
According to Chictopia:
The red circle on the Japanese flag represents what many Japanese children perceive to be the sun. For us at Chictopia and many others in the wake of the recent crisis, it represents hope.
Every outfit post of Chictopia members wearing red will raise $1.
But if you’re not a member, you can still extend aid by donating through Red Cross here.
OR you can spread the news by sharing this post on your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Plurk or whatnot (via the buttons below), so that all Chictopians or interested donors will be informed of this cause. Let us all join hands in helping Japan.
