Our team has been busier than ever with upcoming events for WeAreDAR! It has been a whirlwind of of excitement and emotions on every level. Our to-do list seem to be growing by the day, which of course is a great thing, but also a bit overwhelming at times. My blog today is just to give y’all a quick overview of what’s to come in the next couple of weeks!
We are so excited because our very first trunk show is happening TOMORROW! We have been planning and planning and we couldn’t be more excited to premier our clothes to locals AND give you all the opportunity to pre-order our aDARable children’s clothing line. At our trunk show we will have drinks, food and fun! Our intern Crista (also a designer of our first line) and Annette will be going through each look with the attendees. They will discuss everything from materials to prices, and answer any and all questions, so our customers know exactly what they are ordering. Once the presentation is finished, attendees will be able to mingle, eat, drink and of course, pre-order the outfits of their choosing! We will also have silent auctions for our guests to bid on! This event will surely be a great time and remember, we only have 750 pieces to sell so make sure you make it to one of our upcoming trunk shows!
Of course we are excited about these upcoming events but what our hearts are yearning for is our trip to Haiti! We are so excited to get back to Ti-Bouk to reunite with our 10 seamstresses! They are SO, SO excited about this life changing opportunity and counting down the days for our team to arrive with further instructions on creating our first aDARable line. Our team will be leaving for Haiti on August 10th (just a few short weeks away!) and staying until August 17th. While we are there we will be putting together the finishing touches on the factory, teaching our seamstresses every detail of each piece of the line and most importantly enjoying fellowship with the beautiful community in Ti-Bouk.
A lot goes in to planning events like these and bringing them together to be a success. It has taken tremendous effort and time from every one of our team members to get us where we are today. We all have full time jobs to pay the bills but our hearts all lie with WeAreDAR. We are so thankful to be given the opportunity to change lives. We wouldn’t be where we are if it weren’t for all of you and the support you’ve given us.
We are a long way away from reaching our goals but we are definitely on the right track. If you or any one you know would like to donate to our cause please see our website at: www.wearedar.org/contribute.php or e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
So much love,
