Hi peachies! I’m interrupting the realm of weddings today and kick-starting the week with a good cause. Sheer and Edge of Ember are joining forces to bring those of you in Hong Kong, a charity lingerie and jewelry fashion show at Shore on Saturday 3 November 2012. All ticket proceeds and donations will go to charities, AFESIP Cambodia, Daughters of Cambodia and Shakti Samuha who help combat sex trafficking of young girls in Cambodia and Nepal. The raised funds will be used for rescue work and will provide these girls with food, shelter, healthcare, skills training and all the support necessary to help rebuild their lives and regain hope for the future.
Tickets are just HK$300 each and one ticket will provide food and clothing for one girl for one month. Three tickets will provide one girl for one month with a full rehabilitation package consisting of food, clothing and the provision of shelter, healthcare and skills training. Their goal is to raise over HK$100,000, which if successful, will provide full rehabilitation packages to 103 girls!
Think about all the money we spend in creating our dream wedding for the one day and then think about these vulnerable girls who are exploited and forced into working in the sex industry on daily basis. There is really no reason why we all can’t do a little bit to help the fight against sex trafficking. All it takes here is HK$300. Need I say more?

Hurry and get your tickets peachies! Hope to see you all there! Xx
