S.O.P.H.I.E foundation. {PLEASE READ}

Hello lovely's, remember me?

Well i'm here for a post for the first time in months :) & it's a pretty important one.

As you may or may not know, i'm at college and out college course is sponsored by Illamasqua.

Not only do they sell beautiful products and high quality products, but they are also sponsoring the S.O.P.H.I.E foundation. We all have those moments in life where somebody says something nasty about your appearance, ethnicity, weight etc.. but some people can never get away from it.

I feel strongly about this foundation because as a young teenager I was bullied quite badly, but luckily I was able to overcome it and it was all sorted, for sophie however, her life was taken for no reason whatsoever other than for the fun of some thugs.

Sophie Lancaster sacrificed her life for her boyfriend when they were beaten up for the way they look by 5 vicious thugs.

If you could take 10 minutes to watch the video below it will give you a better understanding of what happened and give you the full story.

Illamasqua have 4 ways in which you can donate money to the foundation, by donating money, buying a sophie band, a sophie eye pencil or newly added to the collection, a sophie blusher.
I will link the illamasqua page which also has 2 more videos on the story and the foundation and then the link to the sophie foundation official website.
I know it is quite a down post but I think it is so important and for the foundation to grow and get to more people, more people need to know and donate.
Together we can beat bullying.
I hope you enjoy this post and do comment below if you didn't know about this foundation before, it would make me happy to know if I had even made one person aware of it, one more is one more than yesterday. And hopefully more posts soon, follow me on twitter @louisamaryy and i will follow back :)
Love Louisa
