First of all I would like to say a big thanks for everyone who has volunteered to join in with my Ethical Fashion Blogathon for Blog Action Day (in memory of my Niece Maddie and in aid of Naomi House Hospice) on 15th October and also for all those who have offered to support the event by sharing and retweeting posts during the event.
If you haven’t read my previous post about why I am organising this event, you can do so here. Basically I will be blogging to promote awareness of ethical fashion brands for 12 hours between the hours of 9am and 9pm on Monday 15th October, writing 24 blog posts. I will also be joined by some amazing fashion bloggers who will be contributing varying numbers of posts inlcuding Esther at Ms Wandas, Lori at Rarely Wears Lipstick, HJ Fantaskis at Green House PR, Hayley at Hayley Thrills and Marie at Learning the Business of Fashion. If you are a fashion blogger and would like to get involved there is still time, just email me asap.
You can sponsor me on Just Giving here. Any amount of sponsorship will be very greatly recieved. If you are fashion brand or fashion related company with a sustainable or ethical ethos, for a minimum donation of £30, you can sponsor a post in the blogathon. Not only will you be supporting a fantastic charity, but you will also get the following in return. Just email your details to email@example.com once you have made your donation.

I am organising an Ethical Fashion Blogathon in memory of my niece, Maddie (you can read more in my post In Memory of Maddie) and in aid of Naomi House Hospice on 15th October, Blog Action Day. I want to raise money for a really worthwhile charity whilst also promoting and raising awareness of ethical fashion.
So here are the details:
What: A 12 hour blogathan during which I aim to write a total of 24 posts about ethical and sustainable fashion brands, retailers and companies. I would also love other bloggers to join in by pledging to write and post one or more posts on their blogs.
When: between 9am and 9pm on Monday 15th October.
Why: To raise money for a fantastic charity and promote sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry plus it will be fun and you may get to discover some fantastic new brands.

I will then be in touch by Friday 12th with the brands/ retailers or companies for you to post about. You will need to post about 250 words plus a least one image and link for each post during the blogathon. I will also provide a blogathon badge for each post which will link to a list of all the posts in the blogathon. It will be up to you what you write.
