I want to share some exciting news today.
Foxy Paws is going to be part of the big charity auction event called Wave of Polish, and for that I have made three special made polishes.
If you haven’t yet heard about Wave of Polish, it’s an event created by an amazing Australian lady, Theresa. She’s brought together all of the big Aussie brands as well as some internationals to raise money for the organisation SAND Australia, which promotes awareness, parent support and understanding following the death of a baby (occurring any time from conception through to newborn).
This is a cause that’s very close to my heart, since I myself have lost a child. Not something I ever talk about. So when I was asked to join this auction I didn’t hesitate one second. I really want to support this project, since I know how it feels to be lost, confused, devastated. And I wish someone would have helped me get through it back when.
I’m really hoping people will support the auctions, and I have to say I’m nervous about if my polishes will raise any money. I will keep my fingers crossed 🙂
Auctions begin at October 8th. More info on the official Wave of Polish page.
These three polishes are one off creation made especially for our Wave of Polish Auctions, they will not be available again.
Always Be My Baby – a light baby blue crelly packed full of neon pink glitter in various sizes (opaque at 2-3 coats)
You’ll Be In My Heart – A clear based glitter topper with baby pink and teal hearts and glitter in various sizes in teal, neon pink, periwinkle and tiny holografic silver to give a little bit of sparkle.
Tears In Heaven – a blueish purple crelly packed full of shimmer and microglitter in pink and purple. A few neon pink glitters giving it a little edge.
You can also join in and raise awareness about the cause by painting your nails!
Besides being the pink month supporting the fight for breast cancer, October is also International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. And like Theresa explains on her event page:
Throughout the month we ask that you paint your nails blue and pink on a Tuesday to show your support and raise awareness of pregnancy and Infant loss. If you would like to do more days in the month that would be great too 🙂
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness day, so if there is only one Tuesday you can commit to painting your nails this month please chose this date. Around the world on the 15th October at 7pm people are asked to light a candle. Then throughout the time zones a wave of light is made in memory of the precious lives taken too soon. Let’s also make October 15th a wave of polished hands showing support throughout the world.”
I hope to see a lot of beautiful manicures from you guys, and if you’d tag me using #foxypawspolish or @foxypawspolish I’d be very happy! (Also, don’t forget to use #waveofpolish)
Thank you so much for reading!
