Jin Soon—celebrity manicurist and owner of three New York City "hand and foot spas"—is starting a collection for those affected by the massive earthquake in Nepal. EV Grieve reports that many of her salons' technicians have roots in the country—and thankfully, have been able to keep in contact with their friends and family members who remain there.
Want to help? Check out Jin Soon's team page on the crowdfunding site Crowdrise, where New-York-based, Nepalese designer Prabal Gurung is also raising money for the cause.
