Impact Your World
I have just this past weekend begun using social media to try & get my plea out to many celebrities asking for a mere $25 from each and asking them to ask their famous friends as well... Some of my favorites are Jimmy Fallon, Ellen Degeneres & Queen Latifah and have submitted video requests to their respective shows for exposure & support in drumming up donations. Call me crazy but I am reaching out to all...
That is why I am writing to you, to additonally, get more local exposure in my plight to raise money. I am hoping you will consider doing a small piece, regarding my journey & I would like to challenge all the hairdressers In your viewing audience to send a small donation to my fundraising page on YouCaring.com. Even just one small tip from every hairdresser in the area...would be significant.
An excerpt from the YouTube video follows:
This video is a call for awareness to help me raise funds for my volunteer mission in Cambodia with a Non Profit Foundation called Justice & Soul. This foundation was founded to help victims of Sex Exploitation and Trafficking by offering scholarships awarded from donation fundraising monies, in a brand new Cosmetology School in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
I will leave my life here in the states August 27th for appx 5 wks to volunteer as a Cosmetology Educator with Justice & Soul Foundation & I am honoring my friend Marina Tat in doing so. Marina fell victim victim herself as a young Cambodian teenager to not only exploitation but violence as well, as she was badly beaten & severely burned with nitric acid and had over 20 + surgeries to heal her wounds. Please watch this video; some graphic photos in the beginning show the horrific nature of her injuries from this tragedy. Could you help by making a small donation? I am not looking for hundreds or thousands, just a simple request from $1.00 or $2.00 or as you can afford... As well I ask you to help be my street team to pay it forward in sharing it on your own personal social media sites...
