#MakeupForDifference – send Ria an encouraging message today!

Ria Sharma, while in her final semester at Leeds College of Arts, was moved by the Oscar-winning documentary film ‘Saving Face’, which documents the experience of acid attack survivors in Pakistan. She says, “I knew I would forget about it the next day, but I didn’t want to forget about it.” She wanted to do something about it. That’s how  ‘Make Love Not Scars’ was born.

Make Love Not Scars started off only as an idea for a website where acid attack survivors can have a page for themselves and showcase their talents and stories through weekly video-blogs.  However, it soon evolved into a platform that could do a lot more to help them blossom again.  The core idea of the website continues and she plans to build a wider set of activities, including a support group. The support group will invite energetic volunteers and creative youth from all over India to interpret the lives and stories of the survivors through art, such as paintings, music, video documentaries, short films, etc., which can be showcased on the website.

Make Love Not Scars has raised funds through specific campaigns for immediate medical assistance and to rehabilitate survivors of acid attacks. But more importantly, it seeks to create a community for survivors of acid attacks to connect with each other. “More than counseling, they [survivors of acid attacks] understand/help each other the best” says Ria.

We think Ria is doing an incredible job and we want to support her in the best possible way.

To help Ria #MakeupForDifference, send her an encouraging message here: http://fabbag.com/makeupfordifference/. For every message received a donation of Rs.50/- will be made to help support her cause.
