We here at LuLu ♥’s Makeup tend to stay away from any real life topics such as politics or economics or what have you but some devastating events have taken place in Japan recently and as fellow human beings we should take care of each other.
On March 11th 2011, Japan was hit by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake resulting in aftershocks and a tsunami which in turn damaged the nuclear power plants. Many people have lost their lives, and homes. Many are still missing. The ones that survived are facing a nuclear crises. Basically, it’s one blow after the other. Now is the time to help. If you are not able to donate at this time, please spread the word to others who have the means to donate. Every little bit helps.
