500 Blonde women will be walking the streets of Latvia on Sunday in hopes of making Latvians forget about the economic crisis.

The day will continue with a fashion show, concert, and a blonde gold tournament. Apparently watching light-haired women makes you forget you don’t have a job.

Spokespeople for this movement are sure that these blonde women can bring some light into Latvia’s national financial crisis and evoke positive emotions.

Ironically, their motto is "make the world a brighter place." Stats for Crisis-Mending Blondes Trending: Older & Chilly
