Polish for a Cause: Haitian Earthquake Victims

BB Couture is releasing a special collection of six polishes to help the victims of the massive earthquake in Haiti. The Hands of Hope collection is available for purchase today on Overall Beauty. 25% of all sales of the Hands of Hope collection will go to women and children in Haiti.
The six polishes are:

~Tortuga Island - explore the exotic lush green island foliage
~Kyona Beach – gaze up at the cloudless baby blue sky while sunning on the beach
~Bassin’s Blue – experience subtle turquoise pools linked by spectacular waterfalls
~Labadie Beach – delight in the delicate pink hues of the setting sun
~Cape Haitian – mornings bring a mysterious pale violet haze over the mountains
~Paradise – savor the natural beauty of Haiti along the endless sandy beige beaches

The Hands of Hope collection is $54, but it looks like you can buy the polishes individually for $9 each. What do you think about buying nail polish to help earthquake victims?

Just to let you know, if you can no afford the full set of Hands of Hope, its now being offered as singles as well. Any little bit helps!

I think it's a nice thought, but couldn't they just send 100% of the money? It's a bit iffy with me that they see a horrible disaster as a potential marketing ploy to sell products...

Thanks for letting us know that Kim! I thought they were available individually, but now we know!

iheartsnark- The website says that 25% of all sales will go to Haiti, so you have to consider the cost of making the nail polish in the first place.
I think this is a great idea for people who may have already given money to disaster relief in Haiti, but maybe they have some extra money in their polish budget and would like to do some good with it!

I thought it was a good idea too! I haven't decided which polishes to purchase yet. Anyone want to see any of these in particular?
