So at the beginning of the year I joined forces with 5 fabulous women to network our home based businesses and also give back in charitable ways. We all realize how blessed we are to be able to stay home with our respective families and run these small businesses, allowing us the luxury to be a “stay at home mom” and yet do something professionally… so… we also wanted to give back. Why? Because we can.
Our mission? ~a band of mothers committed to bring awareness & support to nationwide and local charities through effective vendor planning~
Who are we? The Charitable Divas
Lisa Berta ~ Stella & Dot jewelry
Kristine Kennedy ~ KK’s bags
Maria Kopf ~ Willow House (formerly Southern Living @ Home)
Maryjo Materazo ~ Memoryworks
Christine Stewardson ~ fashion consultant
- & our first alum Brenda Yeager ~ Mary Kay cosmetics (unfortunately we have lost our first diva to a relocation to Texas).
We have held 6 charitable divas events so far this year with 6 different charity beneficiaries and so far we have 4 more scheduled before the end of the year, including our inaugural holiday boutique on December 2nd (more on this to follow). We expect to have a few more events, which are currently in the works, before closing down 2010.
I started this with a business mindset, hoping to grow my teeny, tiny business, but as soon as I felt the power of all the support we received it became ultimately rewarding at such a different level.
We are empowering ourselves and all our supporters with the gift of giving.
