Thank you to those who came out last night to celebrate the 6 month anniversary of the Uniform Project and for helping us raise more funds for Akanksha. Regrettably, there was a fatal accident in the building and we were asked to evacuate the venue. Our thoughts and prayers are now with the family and friends of the victim of this terrible incident. Thank you all for your understanding and support.

Heartfelt condolences,thougts,prayers&love to the person's beloved family and friends.....& indeed with all of you-Sheena,Eliza,all the U.P team,Sean,Mary......It would take a awhile to come in terms with tragic loss of a life & at this time of sadness & shock, all the international followers of the U.P- whom I would call " members of the U.P family", I'm sure would be sending the vibrations of their thoughts and healing prayers across the sea.....

No words would I could write would do justice to this situation, and I cannot begin to imagine how you must be feeling, let alone the relatives. Thank God that you are well, and that most were evauated safely. Life will always have tragedies we cannot understand but it's having an amazing enthusiasm for life and a passion to make a difference for the better like you do that means so much in our messy world.


Thoughts and condolences. x

It was such a lovely event that I was shocked to read this. It was not the posting I was looking forward to seeing. I am so sorry for all of you and for Jerry's family. I hope you will share our condolences with his family and friends. Perhaps it will comfort them that he was supporting such a worthy cause. I wish I had something more eloquent to say.

Jerry was always such a sweet and tender guy. The indie world has lost an amazing drummer this morning. Rest in peace, dear friend.

What an appropriate mourning ensemble. You have helped me see that I do not necessarily need to keep my traditional black "Funeral Suit."

Jessi tagged this Stylish and respectfull

Ohh, I'm so sorry to hear... Sheena (and all of you working with the project), I hope you don't feel guilty. 'Cause it's not your fault, you've got nothing to do with it. Things like that happen sometimes. So very very sad. I hope you can continue your excellent work with style and grace! I love your hairstyle (pretty face demands a short haircut), and you look as great as usually today, despite of the understantable sadness! Lots of love and thoughts from Finland! xx
