The Indie Coalition for a Cause Spring 2015 Fundraiser


     Good afternoon! I'm posting a little bit later in the day today because I was waiting for some information before I shared this news with you. Do you remember seeing these photos floating around the internet over the last few months? Well it's time to let the cat out of the bag and tell you what they are all about!



      I am a member of the ICC, a group of independent nail polish makers and bloggers dedicated to supporting different charities across the globe. Our goal is to hold 2 fundraiser a year which will support a different cause. We have decided to raise money for the charity  Equality Now for our inaugural fundraiser.

     "Equality Now is an organization that advocates for the human rights of women and girls around the world by raising international visibility of individual cases of abuse, mobilizing public support through global membership, and wielding strategic political pressure to ensure that government enact or enforce laws and policies that uphold the rights of women and girls. Their areas of focus include discrimination in law, sexual violence, female genital mutilation and trafficking. The members of the Indie Coalition for a Cause are in full support of this charity as we both envision a world in which women and men have equal rights under the law and full enjoyment of those rights."

     ICC Equality Now Fundraiser: How YOU Can Help

     The wonderful indie makers that are members of the ICC have contributed custom nail polishes made for this specific event to help entice you to donate to this noble cause. Photographed below are the polish prizes, including a few non-custom extras. Donations are to be made to the ICC fundraiser located here in increments of $5  (With a minimum of $10) and those that wish to be included in the raffle drawing may enter the rafflecopter below at the end of this blog post. There are two prize packs for this raffle: one large prize and a second smaller one. At the time of this post, there are still a few polish prizes trickling in, so there will be even more for our generous donators!

     Please note that this is not like my typical giveaway. In order to be eligible to win, you must visit the Crowdrise page here and donate to the campaign. The rafflecopter is set up such that the larger the donation, the more chances you get to win these beautiful polish prizes.
