However, it is horrifying to see the devastation only a few miles away from me at the Jersey Shore. The Jersey Shore and areas of Staten Island, Queens, Manhattan, and many other places were decimated by Sandy. While I'm unable to currently travel to these areas at daylight to volunteer because law school has resumed for me, and they are scheduling us for weekends to make up for days lost, I wanted to do my part and raise money to help those in need.
Subsequently, I have created two holographic shades that I'm now selling called Empire Strong and Jersey Strong, with 100% of the profits going to two government-verified charities. The money will be evenly divided between the Sandy NJ Relief Fund and the Mayor's Fund for Hurricane Sandy Relief.
I apologize for the lackluster photos, but as my power is out, all I have at my disposal is my iPhone. I will post better ones when my power returns. For some reason, Blogger is making the photos a little wonky. However, they are accurate on the store page.
Empire Strong is an icy blue linear holographic polish.
Jersey Strong is an electric emerald green linear holo polish.
Empire Strong and Jersey Strong are sold in full-sized, 15 mL bottles for $15 each on the Princess Polish Online Store. If you purchase both bottles, any additional bottles of either ship for free. $1.50 is flat rate for the Hurricane Relief polishes. :-D
I know that these bottles are more than my regular LE shades, but my goal is to ensure that each bottle sold ensures at least $5 goes to each charity. I hope that you understand. :)
Please be sure to pass this along to friends and share on Facebook. I promise to update you with our fundraising progress with each passing day!
With love, gratitude, and well wishes,
