Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
If you love me even just a wee little bit please read 🙏🏼 Many of you know I’m adopted from Seoul and also have a Korean skincare business. After receiving a message from my orphanage in South Korea saying that due to an unprecedented number of babies in care, there is currently a shortage of funds to pay for milk to feed and nurse these babies back to health, I’ve spent the last few weeks wondering what I can do to help.
I was at this orphanage, Eastern Social Welfare Society, for a couple months before moving to a foster home and then being adopted to Australia. I also volunteered there when I went to Seoul last year to find my birth family and although the orphanage wasn’t helpful to me personally in trying to locate my birth family, I can’t fault the love and care that goes in to giving these babies the best start to life possible, myself included. Unfortunately adoption is still frowned upon in Korea and with South Korea being shamed in to stopping international adoption, orphanages are consequently full.
This is the first time they have ever reached out for fundraising so to help do my teeny little bit I’ve curated a skincare bag for Beauty & Seoul and donating £1 for every bag sold. Skincare bag can be purchased here. Whatever is raised, I will then double.
If skincare isn’t your thing but you still want to donate please do so via here ❤️🤗
