So it’s been a long time coming friends! Thank you for your support, enthusiasm and cheers! I’m here in NYC this week doing some mad research and development. Meeting with boutiques, and scoping out the whole kids clothing scene. Let me just say, it’s a competitive market out there! There are sooo many adorable kids clothing and accessories that I’m really tempted to open up my OWN store. But I truly believe that we’ve got something special here.
So many of you have been so interested and asked, “So where can I purchase your baby blankets?” The answer will be found via our fundraising platform (launching soon!).
We are still in our early stage of development. Which means we need seed money to get this project underway. No money = no baby blankets = no help for women in need. So we would LOVE all of you to help us out by spreading the word (Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, your bumper sticker, your grannie’s front porch, whatever means you can find!).
We will be featuring many awesome goods in exchange for your support at different giving levels. Here are a few examples:
• An exclusive Ellie Fun Day Poster designed by Akiko Ito Design (it’s adorable!)
• Ellie Fun Day tote bag
• Ellie Fun Day blankets (options for customization, and a custom design from your’s truly!)
• Calvina Photography photo sessions
• even…perhaps, a trip to India to see and meet the women that make your blanket!
This first run of baby blankets will be made in the USA. This is our way of giving you a head start on getting an Ellie Fun Day blanket. It’s also our hope to raise enough capital to begin developing our production in India and working to empower marginalized women.
So look out for our online fundraising project launching soon and thanks for partnering with us to save the world one blankie at a time!
xoxo for freedom,
