Thank you for visiting and please bear with me, I hope that you understand – I’m crazy busy working on the LBD Project Book and exhibition that is launching next week! Add that to your calendar!
In the meantime, many thanks to the awesome Creative Women’s Circle for blogging about my Pozible campaign as I try to get your support to help me print my first book!
POZIBLE.COM/LBDPROJECT: Thank you to everyone who has pledged to purchase a copy of The LBD Project Book in either electronic or physical form – we’ve raised over $1000! I need to raise $5000 by next Wednesday and if you haven’t already, would appreciate your support and shares! To that end, thank you to my internet friends Kelly Exeter, Lara McPherson, Emma Merkas and Lou Pardi for sharing the project online as well as my gorgeous offline friends, Meg, Janie and Dee for getting the word out too! Please let me know if you have shared the project so that I can give you a shout out too!
“…$1 from every copy of this first edition and numbered print run of 500* bookssold, will go towards OneGirl’s efforts to help make the world a better place by giving girls an education.”
And in a little update that I’d like to share with you, long time readers of BusinessChic may recall that I like opportunities that tie matters of style with substance. So when OneGirl co-founder, Dave Dixon, pre-ordered a copy of the LBD Project to help support my Pozible campaign and left this gorgeous comment, it got me thinking about how much the work that he and Chantelle do to help improve the lives of girls in Sierra Leone through OneGirl, blows me away. If you would like to know more, you can catch up on my OneGirl blogposts here or check out their site at OneGirl.org.au.
So I’d like to announce that $1 from every copy of this first edition and numbered print run of 500* books sold, will go towards OneGirl’s efforts to help make the world a better place by giving girls an education. They also do projects giving women sanitary pads. Imagine having to take time off work because you have your period and therefore earn less income?
Thank you, David and Chantelle for your awesome work and I’m so pleased that this style project can have some sort of meaningful impact – much in the vein of the super inspiring Sheena Mathieson whose Uniform Project was an inspiration for my project!
*If I can sell more than 500 books, I’ll look into how I can donate more! Support and pre-order a copy of the LBD Project Book here!
