Raising Awareness

While this is a fashion blog, sometimes I feel compelled to do what I can to assist good causes. Today is no exception.


The folks over at Sixx Pack have put together an all day event today in order to raise funds and awareness for children and the few adults who survive, Epidermolysis Bullosa. This rare skin disease is an inherited connective tissue disease causing blisters to the skin and mucosal membranes. Its severity ranges from mild to LETHAL. Most children born with this do not live past an average of 2 years. It has been described akin to having 3rd degree burns your whole life and is quite painful.


The University of Minnesota has done a bone marrow transplant on a 2 year old child and found it to be successful, but more research and funding is needed to help, please come down to Sixx Pack today and help the caring folks by bidding on an auctioned item, person, or service or simply donate what you can to the donation jar. All parties today are mixers so both male and female avatars are welcomed to join in.


Right now from 8-10am our very own Kilolo Jenkins is DJing!! but parties will go on all day - I hope you can help us, help them!!!

Shop*gasm is a creation from the twisted warped mind of at least 2 people with shopping a.d.d. and the mind of one person who loves to tag along and will one day have a computer fast enough to keep up.

DISCLAIMER:
This blog is a project that was birthed out of three sisters and friends wanting to do something together that we could all enjoy and share.

The contributors of Shop*gasm are consumers. We like to shop. Correction...we LOVE to shop. For the most part, we blog our purchases. Maybe not every single one, but definitely something we find noteworthy.

On the off chance we're given items for review, we're thankful. But like other blog sites, we can not guarantee that your item will be blogged, nor will we guarantee that our review of items are always going to be favorable. What we will guarantee is an open and honest blog for you to read, with just enough moxie and personality to make you either hate it or love it. LOL

Hopefully you'll find the blog just as fun and awesome as we have in creating it :)
