Anyway, today has been a good one. Thank you universe! I’ve had a pretty relaxed day with some good sales and was just catching up with some emails when I came across a ‘friend request’ from a fellow member of Independent Fashion Bloggers. It was from Meredith of The Compassion Fashion Project. Perhaps it was the name, but I just felt compelled to find out more. As soon as I read what they are about, my thoughts went instantly to my dear friend, Veronica, of Some Like it Vintage. She had a hideous life experience with her ex-partner some time back and I thought she would be interested in learning about The Compassion Fashion Project.
Well, all I can say is that it’s a very small world because within a couple of minutes of reading this wonderful blog, I’d found "Veronica's Story". It just goes to show how amazing the world-wide-web really is. Never in a million years would I have ever known about Veroncia or heard her story. In addition, I wouldn’t have known what good work is being done by projects such as this. So, without further ado, here is exactly what The Compassion Fashion Project is all about:
“The objective of The Compassion Fashion Project is to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence and promote the healing process for the victims through providing fashionable clothing, especially professional attire, accessories, and personal care products. We are just a couple of gals trying to save the world, which can be a daunting task in stilletos! If you have a story about domestic violence…we want to hear it. If you would like to empower yourself and inspire others please send any letters, stories, articles, poems, artwork, or whatever your creative outlet is to firstname.lastname@example.org and we may feature you on our blog.”
I would urge anyone, anywhere, to contact The Compassion Fashion Project if you have been affected by, have a story to share about domestic violence or wish to contribute in some way. -Louise Sleigh
