IT’S FINALLY HERE!!! I am SO incredibly excited to announce the launch of my online boutique, allGLAMMEDup Designs! I’ve always had a love for jewelry and have so much of it because each piece is different and can make a different statement when worn with an outfit. My mom and I have been making jewelry as a hobby since I was a little kid. It’s one of my favorite ways to put my creativity to use and either come up with new designs, or try and recreate something I saw and liked, but put my own twist on it.
I’ve known for a few years that I want to start a boutique at one point that gives back to some sort of charity or organization, but I never really knew what that would be. Over the past 6 months or so, God has kept bringing up the topic of ending human trafficking and getting girls out of the sex industry. I was introduced to Divine Ministry at Mariners Church, and coordinated an outreach event with a couple of the female leaders from College Ministry. Breanne, one of the main leaders of Divine, led us on an outreach to 12 strip clubs around Orange County the day before Valentine’s Day. We went in (we got in to about half of them), headed straight to the dressing room, and delivered goody bags and handwritten love notes to the dancers. It was amazing seeing the joy they had when we showed up, but it broke my heart into so many pieces seeing what they think they have to do to get by. These girls are going through so much and I knew I had to do something about it.
What’s so special about my online boutique is that 15% off all profit will go towards Divine’s outreach fund. Each outreach costs about $600-$800, because each time, they reach about 200 women and give them some sort of handmade gift.
So what are you waiting for?! Start shopping!
