Sea of Serenity Contests

Fundraiser Raffle:

We are excited to announce that we are holding a raffle to raise money for Doctors Without Borders! Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) translates to Doctors without Borders, and they are a non-profit organization that provides medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare. We have chosen to support MSF due to their work pertaining to the current ongoing global pandemic, as well as their work in Beirut following the tragic events on August 4th. To find out more about this organization, please visit their website here. You can enter for the chance to win a selection of prizes donated by our wonderful participating brands. To enter the raffle, simply make a donation of $5 or more to https://www.msf.org/donate and email your donation receipt to seaofserenity.jfash@gmail.com . Every $5 donated will count as one raffle ticket!

If you want to dress “on theme” for this event, you might choose to focus on the sea with mermaids, sailor outfits, pirates, sea life, etc. or maybe on the lunar aspect with moon phases, night skies, other space themes, or, best of all, focus on the serene and find the outfit that makes you the most at peace.
