Need to be caught up?L'eggs originally approached me with this great idea to host a party to collect donations for Dress For Success.
Dress for Success is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help them thrive in work and in life.
I thought it was such a great idea that I decided to get the rest of Thread Cincinnati involved as a way for us to give back and also be able to collect even more donations! And we did!
Due to the number of people we were expecting, we wanted to host the event at a cool space. When The Frock in Covington, Ky found out about the event they wanted to support this cause too and let us host the event there fo' free! They are the sweetest ladies who make up three Cincinnati-based businesses
- Honey Events, Linger Flowers, and Lyell Photography.
We were so overwhelmed with donations for DFS Cincy, I didn't think we would fit them all in my car. I can't wait for the women who will be the recipients of these great work pieces to read the inspiring notes left for them.
Now I'm encouraging YOU to throw a similar soiree for your friends! I doesn't have to be anything extravagant, invite them to dinner, have a ice cream social, pool day, etc. The focus is to collect donations to support underprivileged women and this great organization. All donations of any size will help! Find your local Dress For Success organization HERE.
