'My soul is broken,'

"FASHION FOR COMPASSION"
August 22, 2008

To Whom It May Concern,

Two weeks before high school graduation, an 18 year old girl stopped by her local library late at night to return her books. She was later found brutally raped and beaten half to death. The victim is now suffering from brain damage, unable to speak or move, and is now blind. Due to the incident, her family is nearly bankrupt and her Medicaid recently expired. She had a full ride scholarship to a University. Now, her recent progress was lifting her head for merely 10 seconds.

After hearing about this story, we were inspired to help the victim and her family. We are hosting a fashion show fundraiser on September 27, 2008. We believe your support will greatly benefit this event. Please, inform us if there is anything needed to make it a possibility. Hopefully, we will be working together for a great cause.

Sincerely yours,

Michelle Phan

Gosh, this is so sad. :( I would go if I was even remotely near by, but I'm not.

that's so sad. =[
you should be careful about jogging alone. i don't know if you heard about the incident a few months ago at blanchard. i guess it could happen anywhere, but it's just that since it actually occurred there, you should take extra precaution.
