My Dear Readers,
I am directly copying and pasting you the email i received, it is best to do this way, we want lots of girls, women to hear our voice and join us.
Apologies for the mass email. I've bcc'd you all for the sake of privacy. I'm getting in touch to let you know about a petition healingbeauty.co.uk has started. I know everyone is quite exhausted by the Rodarte-MAC affair this week, however, we wanted to give it one last push.
We feel that $100,000 is not enough of a contribution from such a vast global company. We also think that changing the product names in the collection will only sweep the issue under the carpet for MAC and does nothing to raise awareness of the femicides and exploitation in Juarez.
Here's the petition which explains this fully - http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/macrodarte/
If you are on board, it would be wonderful if you could help spread the word. You could do this in a number of ways (do all, or one, or none - it's your choice of course):
1) Write a quick blog post to alert your readers of the petition, linking to: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/macrodarte/
2) Tweet this link to your followers and ask them to support the cause: http://bit.ly/macrodartepetition
Something like this would work well: 'Please help make a long-term commitment to the women of Juarez: http://bit.ly/macrodartepetition #rodartemac'
3) Sign it yourselves!
Many, many thanks for what you've all done already. If you don't wish to participate any further I completely understand. If you do, that's fantastic.
