In the summer of 2014 I met Celeste at the Today Show and have reunited with her several times since. This summer we decided to work on a project that supported both the Fifty Shades of Grey community and helped children who can’t help themselves.
We bounced around a lot of ideas for different charities. After Mags and I saw JK Rowling speak about her charity, Lumos, and the devastating effects that orphanages can have on the children they are supposed to protect, we decided that this was an amazing opportunity to help children around the world.
Lumos is dedicated to ending the institutionalization of children and bringing them back to their families or community supported organizations where their likelihood of ending up in jail, addicted to drugs, or committing suicide are significantly lower.
We worked with Victoria from Ruffles and Restraints to create shirts to celebrate the release of Fifty Shades Darker in February. It combines the theme of the Masquerade Ball to support children and our love of Fifty Shades of Grey and the power that each of us has to change a life.
Purchasing these shirts is an opportunity to show your love for Fifty Shades Darker and to help children who can’t help themselves, and we will make them available to purchase until January 3, 2017 with delivery in mid to late January (within the US).
The prices were set to allow for a small donation to Lumos for each item purchased (a few dollars minimum for each order). The more shirts that are ordered, the lower the production cost for the order, allowing a larger donation to Lumos.
There are three shirt options:
Grey Hoodie $36
To thank the supporters of this endeavor, at the end of the campaign Crissy will give one supporter a signed picture of Jamie Dornan.
Celeste and I may also host some additional giveaways and raffles related to this project, so please follow us on Twitter @50Latersbaby and @FiftyShadesPA to stay up to date.
