GUYS PLEASE READ:
please make dua for our brother Ali Banet. He has done so much for the world. He’s built so many schools, villages for orphans and mosques, however he is in his last stage of cancer. If you haven’t already check out his video on Instagram it’s matw_project , it’s very heartbreaking and he needs all your duas so please just for 5 minutes pray for him. May Allah give him shifa and grant him the highest jannah.
By request, here are some of my best thrifted finds! I am sorry if I sound a bit rushed in the video (and throw clothes around!); I only had 45 minutes to set up and film. I also say “super cute” too much…
Only a few more Wonder Woman charity prints left with proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Hoping to get these all sold and out by the first week of October to really kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Charity:Hey. Now then, there's someone who looks like they'd appreciate a free pint.
Robert:Go on, spit it out.
Charity:All right. Are you still interested in investing in this place? Cos you were, right? Well, now that I've managed to draw in all these extra punters it's an even tidier little investment now, innit?
Robert:Look, I had my reasons at the time but cleaning the toilets and clearing up the empties? That wouldn't be my thing anyway. It's more of a mug's game in hindsight.
Charity:Okay, fine. Well, tell you what. £3.20 that will be. Thank you so much. Put it right there.
Chris Eubank & Tom Hardy lend support to BGC annual charity day
Chris Eubank, Chris Eubank Jnr, and Tom Hardy pitched in to help raise funds at this year’s BGC Partners’ annual Charity Day.
The day took place on 12th September and commemorates the 658 BGC staff lost on 9/11 by donating its global revenues for the day to charities worldwide. Celebrity ambassadors representing participating charities join licensed brokers on the trading floors to conduct transactions with BGC clients, with 100 per cent of the revenues from the day donated to those charities.
This year saw the Eubanks and Hardy take to the trading floor to help raise funds, with the Eubanks raising funds for Children with Cancer UK, and Hardy volunteering for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. (x)

Hello! I'm super interested in your clothing style and was wondering where you get the clothes that you wear?
Hey friend, thanks for the question! I
still remember being an impoverished teenager who dreamed of cool
goth clothes. The closest I got in those days was a Still Breathing band T-shirt
that was way too big for me. I’m bringing that up for what I’m pretty
sure is the same reason you brought it up: Goth clothes are freaking
There are many more
important things your money could go toward, and DIY is cheapest.
If you cut the crotch out of a pair
of nylons and pull it over your head, there are your mesh sleeves!
(Obviously, I wear a real shirt over that!) It works pretty well if
you buy the right size nylons – and it’s way cheaper than buying a
mesh top from a goth shop.
The long sleeves of an old shirt can be cut off and modified into arm warmers. I wear the narrow wrist end up by my shoulders so that it stays on more easily.
If you’re an artsy type, any pair of black pants or any black T-shirt can be stitched, bleached, or nail polished into the style that you want.
Thrifting and Halloween Sales
In about a month, secondhand stores and
supermarkets will be full of spooky “Halloween” items that goths
just call everyday apparel. That’s how I got the Ghostbusters T-shirt
I’m wearing at this very moment. The day after Halloween is your best
friend! I’ve found old costumes I could flip into accessories, and
there’s usually no shortage of striped tights this time of year.
There are always the high-end goth shops if you have money to burn, but I could never bring myself to spend $75 on pants.
A friend of mine has found some insanely cool merch, including a Joy Division shirt, on eBay. I also journey through the jungles of
Amazon.com in search for lost treasure. Buying clothes online can by
risky because not all sellers are trustworthy, and sizes vary from
one manufacturer to another. But if you have a measuring tape and you
pay attention to detail, especially reading reviews, you can build up
a wardrobe that way. Cheap? Not particularly, but again, cheaper than a goth shop. Here are my favorite finds: [x] [x]
In my opinion, the absolute hardest
part of getting goth clothes on the cheap is the boots. There’s just
no substitute for clompin’ monster goth boots. You can always find
cute little flats that look like Mary Janes, and currently there’s no
shortage of narrow-toed boots that college girls like to wear over
their jeggings. But knee-high boots? Black platform boots? Biker
boots? Expensive. That’s where you’d just have to save up to make
one or two very careful splurges, unless you find some amazing secondhand sellers.
Instead of dying your hair over and over forever, which not only adds up but damages your follicles and tresses, consider investing in a wig. One slightly more expensive payment is better than a lifetime of cheap payments. (But watch out, because funky wigs can actually be a little addicting!)
If wigs aren’t your thing, I’m a fan of Punky Colour brand hair dye. The drawback is that brunettes like me need to bleach the cuss out of their hair before anything fancy in a jar will stick, and you need to re-dye frequently. A hairstylist will tell you that you should never color your hair with something that came in a box, but I’ve found that $10 Vidal Sassoon has lovely red and violet shades, and they last way, way longer than Splat. Do not waste your money on Splat!
Before buying anything, I would take a look at the closet and ask, “Do I own things I never wear?” If the answer is yes, please donate them! And if you don’t want to donate or wear them, you might want to consider if you have a problem.
Whenever I’m about to spend a lot of money, I end up thinking, Instead of buying clothes, I could be donating to charity. When you know that others are hungry, do you really need another new top? Obviously, I like to buy myself something new now and then. There’s nothing wrong with getting yourself a little treat, and money was made to be spent! My point is that goth and other punk subcultures are supposed to be anti-establishment, and consumerism doesn’t really flow with that.
Jesus gave a lot to me. He gave me His life. He also said, “If God has been generous with you, He will expect you to serve Him well. But if He has been more than generous, He will expect you to serve Him even better.” This is not to say that we should feel guilty about how little we give. This is to say that time is short and death is sure and God freaking loves us, so let’s love others!
