A Year in Review (With a Personal Plea)
Hi fellow feminists ----
In the spirit of closing out 2017 and going into 2018 with open eyes and a full heart, I wanted to check in with you about the past, present, and future for Zora & Amelia. Pretty please give this a quick read.
I don't want to be a spammy marketing person. I just truly want to make a difference in a world where we have to have a #MeToo moment to finally call attention to sexual harassment's prevalence in society. In a world where we have a President tweeting insults at women nearly daily. In a world where women are still only 24% of the STEM workforce. In a world where gender is a limiting factor. I can't sit by and Zora & Amelia is my little way of making something happen. So, please. Help me make change happen.
Since launch in March 2017, I've....
>>> Held 12 pop up shops across DC, in partnership with awesome women-owned businesses, BEACON, Pleasant Pops, house parties, Crafty Bastards, and the DCJCC.<<<
>>> Received a grant from BEACON to expand our work (& you all voted for us!) <<<
>>> Attended the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Hyderabad, India this November, fully funded by the U.S. State Department <<<
>>> Was featured in Spendrise holiday shopping campaign as a company that gives back. <<<
>>> Built up the site with products from dozens of female entrepreneurs, designers, authors, (and a few good men!). <<<
>>> Donated to YWCA, Girls on the Run, and Capitol Hill Arts Workshop. <<<
Right now, I'm...
>>> Pitching holiday shopping! Give the Facebook event some love! <<<
And for the future, I'm aiming to...
>>> Grow this thing. Can you give me your feedback? <<<
>>> For the social media savvy crew, can you do a quick holiday promo for me? Just a quick tweet/FB share of the shopping event/note about the site would be Twitter and Instagram and F
For the non-internet lovers, I'd be incredibly grateful if you can share the word about my site.
Thank you thank you thank you.
