A Step Toward a Bigger Dream
Next year, we intend to open a brick-and-mortar boutique here in New York City!! It will carry elegantees, dresses, skirts, and accessories, all made by women rescued from sex trafficking and violence. The goals of the store:
- Set aside 10% or more of sales to give to Restore NYC to open another safe house.
- Offer the space for fundraising events for various causes in this city.
- Carry other brands made by survivors to encourage this mission worldwide.
We are setting up a one-day only boutique "pop-up" shop on July 18, 2014, that will be an event to show investors that many support this vision. Your presence will help make it successful.
Update: We did a great job organizing it and it was so great!! Really enjoyed getting to meet some supporters face-to-face However, we should have spent more time advertising it to have met sales goals. We learned that when the store opens, marketing will be so important!
