DESIGNERS4AFRICA via Crowdrise
December 03, 2010
Basically I had a great idea... all designers have odds & ends & together we as a group donated (see in photos) jewelry that was auctioned off & funded a play pump (also in photos) so the idea is now a reality. However we need start up funds to see this go the distance... This has the potential of being bigger than the RED campaign it is not a fad its something that will be around as long as artist , designers & musicians are. However as founder & myself a small business owner the economy has hit & I no longer have funds or credit line to continue to fund everything personally. I truly believe in this have already seen it work. Thousands of children in 2 villages are getting safe water as a result, there is now a womens jewelry collective & these women took their earnings & started a brick oven business. This is all a tiny step but its a huge difference if its you that no longer has to worry about your child when getting water or how you will earn money to support yourself & family. Help me help others become self reliant!
