Here are other ways you can help survivors of gender-based violence:
Thank you for dropping by my online boutique!
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.
