The Gift of Friendship
Friends allow us to be heard and seen for who we are.
I believe there are many ways to support the Black community and I’m open to your suggestions. This a critical time in our history and I believe now is the time to raise my voice in support of Black Women. I hope you will join me.
My passion is to support and make space for ALL WOMEN. I stand before you as a woman business owner asking for you to support, not only Women Owned, but businesses owned by Black Women and Women of Color. We vote with our dollar and when we order everything from Amazon or Wal-Mart we are putting money into the pockets of huge companies and their highly paid CEOs. I don't know about you, but that's not who I want to support with my dollar.
There are many ways to support the Black Community. We can educate ourselves. We can donate to organizations who are striving to make change. We can speak up, instead of staying silent, when others use racial slurs or put downs. We can shop and support businesses owned by Black Women and Women of Color.
Some of these are local businesses, some not. Please join me in supporting.
I believe it is just as much about where you spend your money as where you don’t spend your money. I stopped supporting certain businesses who continued to advertise on shows that promote homophobic, anti-immigration and racist agendas. When businesses advertise on those shows, it is clear they are supporting or at the very least are ok with those views. Neither one is acceptable.
I'm looking forward to supporting all of these businesses.
Please choose responsibly when you shop - we are all in this together.
