Chictopia is running a great fundraiser for the victims of the recent natural disasters in Japan, with bloggers and fans sending in photos of themselves wearing red (woven into their best street style outfits) and donating $10 each. The website will match up to $1,000 of the community’s contributions to donate to Japan in their time of need. And we couldn’t help but notice, the opening image for the fundraiser boasts one of our favorite wardrobe equations—a blazer/denim shorts combo (scroll down to check it out). What a great opportunity to get creative with your denim, and help Japan!
“The fashion community can not only inspire what people wear daily,
but we have a voice that can call other people
into action at a time of crisis and loss.”
In response to the massive earthquake in Japan and its devastating outcome, we at Chictopia would like to ask for your help by wearing red and donating $10 to Japan relief funds. By uploading a photo of yourself wearing red, the symbol of Japan, you will not only be showing your support for those devastated by the crisis in Japan but you will also be spreading hope and awareness towards actual change and relief efforts.The task is simple:
1. Upload a photo of yourself wearing one article of red clothing and tag the “Style” as “Wear Red Wear Hope”.
2. Help those in Japan by donating $10 here. All donations will be given to Red Cross Japan earthquake and tsunami relief funds.
3. Help spread the message via Facebook, Twitter, or tell a friend. We are a community not just about clothes and fashion, we make a statement with what we wear.
CHICTOPIA will match up to $1,000 of the community’s contribution.
We will give everyone who enters the fundraiser
1 chic point for every $1 we raise.
This online fundraising event will run from April 11 to May 15, 2011.We just ask that you all please join together for Japan. Wear Red. Wear Hope.
Please donate to the Red Cross Japan earthquake and tsunami fund here.
