Beauty can help fight cancer


A little boy named Mio is fighting the battle of his life. The enemy is leukemia and Mio is all of 5 years old, so we desperately need your help.

As a magazine editor, I get a lot of beauty products sent my way. I hope my friends in the beauty industry will understand what I'm about to do--I will be selling beauty products here at 20% to 50% off of their retail price to raise funds for Mio's chemotherapy treatment. These are all brand new, unused and authentic.

UPDATE: I've run out of beauty products to sell so thank you to the other magazine editors and beauty writers who gave me their products--the proceeds of which will all go to Mio and Jasmine! They don't want to be identified but thank you, lovely ladies!SOLD!
