Jimmy Choo and Elton John AIDS Foundation have launched a photo competition to support the launch of Project PEP, a charity collection that donates 25% of sales to the Simelela Rape Centre in South Africa. The money goes towards providing the HIV-preventative treatment PEP (which must be taken within 72 hours of exposure to HIV) and counselling to victims of rape in South Africa, which has the highest count of rape in the world.


The theme of the photo competition is ‘You, Your Shoes and 72’, and as you can see from some of the photo entries below, we’ve had a very diverse response over the past few weeks:

Kimi ni todoke (from me to you) : kawaii manga 4

Kimi ni todoke (from me to you) is the most popular shojyo manga in Japan now. It will be converted to the animation in this October.


Sawako Kuronuma, called Sadako by her classmates for her resemblance to the character from Ring, has always been feared and misunderstood because of her appearance. There are rumors that Sawako can see ghosts and curse people. But when her idol, popular boy Kazehaya, begins talking with her, everything changes. She finds herself in a new world, trying to make friends and talking to different people and she can’t thank Kazehaya enough for giving her these opportunities. Slowly, but surely, a sweet love is blossoming between the two as they will overtake any circumstance or clear obstacles in their way. (from Wikipedia)

“Change” is big word in Japan, too. Kimi ni todoke give hope and happiness to all girls readers.

Recently kimi ni todoke vol.9 was published and now continuing. It seemes to be translated in English for vol.4. The animatsion will start from October 6th.
