Today i received a email from Illamasqua regarding the Sophie Lancaster foundation that i wanted to share with you.
If you are unaware, the Sophie Lancaster Foundation was set up just over 4 years ago after the death of Sophie Lancaster purely for looking unique and different.
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation aims to Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere.
The aims and objectives of the Charity are as follows:
- To create a lasting legacy to Sophie.
- To provide educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
- To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from “alternative subcultures” or “Lifestyle and Dress”
- To work in conjunction with politicians and police forces to ensure individuals who are part of subcultures are protected by the law.
A week tomorrow, Saturday 26th November would have been Sophies 25th Birthday.
In honour of Sophie's birthday and to mark their support for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, Illamasqua are hosting an internationally open competition to win a selection of cult pieces from the Illamasqua collection, including Medium Pencil in Sophie, Pure Pigment in Zeitgeist, Nail Varnish in Unnatural, Intense Lipgloss in Repulse, False Eye Lashes in no.21 and a S.O.P.H.I.E wristband.
And best of all, there will be FIVE winners! The competition is open until Midnight GMT Sunday 27th November
I urge you all to get involved for this amazing and so very worthwhile charity!
Thank you for reading
