2nd Story Goods Infrastructure FUNdraiser
(we know you may stop reading when you see the word “fundraiser” so we capitalized the FUN so you know that you know how fun this really is!)
As a non-profit social enterprise operating in a developing country and selling our products in a globalized market, sometimes our struggles with infrastructure threaten to bring us down. But we refuse to be brought down, because we believe that what we are doing is vital to the shifting of the economy and the lives of the beautiful people of Haiti.
We are determined to only go up from here, and we need YOUR help as we grow!
We are on a mission to fundraise to meet our needs for survival and we can’t do it without you! Here are our current needs:
$400: buys a Sewing Machine. Need 4
$350: buys new sewing supplies: mats, scissors, cutting and measuring tools
$600: buys Education/ Training for Pottery Guys for a month. Need 6 months
$50: buys supplies/tools/ equipment for the kiln that was donated! Need 10 batches
$2000: buys training with new tools and designs and general education for jewelry artisans. We’re bringing in a person to help us upgrade our skills and designs. These women have been with 2nd Story Goods the longest of anyone and in order to keep them working and grow this department we must invest in their skill sets and design capacity. We’ve been sorely lacking in this area. Need 10 gifts of $200
