Sophie Lancaster

Hi guys

Just a quick post I wanted to do about a very worthwhile charity. 

I’ve posted about the SOPHIE Foundation before, back in 2009. If you don’t know much about it, its a foundation set up by Sophie Lancaster’s mother after Sophie’s death in 2007. The reason for her murder? Being a goth, looking different.

Illamasqua is a brand that, in their own words, promotes the right to experiment and self express through the way you look and have been supporting the Foundation since the beginning.

Yesterday marked the fourth anniversary of Sophie’s death and Illamasqua have released a video in memory. The film explains how Illamasqua raise awareness and where the funding for the charity goes and is definitely something to take an interest in.

You can also see the first video Illamasqua made back in 2009 on my previous post here. It has now reached 275,000 hits but Illamasqua hope to reach over 500,000 so the Foundation’s message can keep on spreading.

The official channels for the SOPHIE Foundation visit and follow for updates.


  1. Such a shame what happened to Sophie. Good on you for posting this and raising awareness x

  2. I cannot believe what happened to Sophie. How utterly tragic. So nice of you to raise awareness.xx
