The EVELYN in Burgundy Plum by elegantees - a team of volunteers that work with Restore NYC and The Nepali Rescue Project to provide resources needed for victims. We do so through hosting sewing classes and mentoring survivors. The primary tool is through employment. In providing sewing work, a positive source of income reinforces a healthy self-image, independence, and confidence.
Raise your hand if your email has been showered with “cyber-deals” & “sales you can’t miss” messages this week? It starts with Black Friday and continues all weekend through “Cyber-Monday” (more my style because you can shop at home in your pajamas), but the message is this: “Hurry! Don’t miss the best gift for the best deal! You need this to make you or your loved ones happy!” And truth be told? I buy into it ALL sometimes.
