WE HAVE OUR VERY OWN CHARITY!!!!
Ladies and Gentleman:
is finally here!
After years of delivering leftover food from weddings among the homeless in Pittsburgh, I decided it was time to do more, and to offer an additional type of help, exclusively to women.
With the same idea of repurposing what we already own, I am collecting unwanted makeup bags (such as Ipsy), travel size toiletries, and makeup, and I delivers these items, along with a personal, handwritten note, to marginalized women.
I am motivating all my wedding vendor friends, my clients, fans, friends, and all the community, to help reach the goal of gathering 1,000 bags by the end of July.
The name of this new project is Worth Manifesto, and I am hoping that this unrequested yet intentional gift helps the most vulnerable women by uplifting their spirits and reminding them of their self worth.
I announced this project a few weeks ago on Instagram, and during the first month of Worth Manifesto, hundreds of donations were received and are now being distributed among homeless women in South Side and Downtown Pittsburgh. The outpouring of support encouraged me to launch a website and a new campaign, which is to gather 1,000 bags to send to help the women at the border crisis: BOOM!
The first batch of bags is going to the respite center in McAllen, TX, where countless men, women, and children refugees stop to rest, have a warm meal, shower and change into clean clothing. According to the director of the respite center, an average of 300 women go through this center daily.
Donations for the border crisis will be received for one month, until August 1. Whatever is received after that date or beyond these 1,000 bags will continue to be distributed among other women, locally and across the country.
I am especially looking for volunteers who can donate personal notes in Spanish,
handwritten with encouraging messages of hope, to women who currently might be downhearted.
Donations can be dropped at my house: 932 Mirror Street, Pittsburgh PA 15217.
Thank you everybody! All of you have encouraged me to dream this big, and to pursue those dreams, and I couldn’t be happier, and more fulfilled to know that we are truly changing the world with our love stories!.
