I am asking for financial help in raising funds to design and make tote bags and duffle bags for Dress For Success Atlanta, Georgia. Dress For Success is a non- profit organization which helps underprivileged women in many ways. The organization helps women get jobs, learn interviewing skills, maintain jobs, learn how to dress appropriately, as well as, many other opportunities these women would not get otherwise.
I would like to use my skills as a designer and maker to provide faux leather tote bags and duffle bags for these women. DFS-Atlanta supports over 800 women in the Atlanta area. I have chosen this organization for my business to support. But I need the financial help to do so.
Presently, the women who are admitted to the organization receive a paper bag full of toiletries and other items. I would like to provide a tote bag and duffle bag that the women can use instead, which would provide greater protection for their personal items. I would also like to provide a bag that can hold a portfolio and they can coordinate with their new business outfits.
I would love to provide a leather handbag for each of these women. But this would be costly. I am a designer of leather goods. A better alternative would be to design and make bags for them in sturdy, high quality, functional, and beautiful faux leather that can provide the same type of protection and discretion as leather but at a fraction of the cost. This material will also reduce the production time.
I need financial aid to acquire the raw materials, handbag hardware, and hire the assistance I will need to get these bags made while maintaining services to my customers. I am a licensed small business owner who runs out of my basement studio. I need the financial aid to make this happen.
These women have been through a lot. Some of them still have to endure a lot while supported by DFS. They deserve a chance and I would like to make them feel better about themselves. This is one way, I can do this.
