My friend, Jin Seo, designer of 51inc, so generously donated all these clothes! The clothes are all gorgeous, incredibly well made minimalist clothing with well thought out design details that I love. We had a massive "in person" sample sale (pre-covid days) in my apartment + on my personal FB account, and in 6 weeks, we generated over $22K together! Many thanks to all my friends + Womankind volunteers who helped me pull this off!
100% of the proceeds of this sample sale will go to benefit Womankind, a non-profit organization that helps survivors of gender-based violence, rise from trauma. With their 24-7 phone helpline services available in English, Spanish, and 18+ Asian languages, 3 community centers (closed temporarily due to Covid, but our services have pivoted online for now), and 2 emergency residences (both are still open, so that we can continue to provide essential help to those who are currently in our care).
I have been on the Board of Directors for almost 4 years now, and I am continually inspired by the work that they do to help survivors, and also to spread awareness against gender-based violence, so that we can continue as larger communities, to work toward a less violent future.
