There’s just one week left until I pack up my panties and head to the Big Apple to attend The Lingerie Selection, a trade show in NYC where buyers, press and social influencers will be able to view assortments, talk shop and place orders. In late January, I started a Go Fund Me Campaign to raise money so that I could go. Over the past month, I’ve been blown away by the amount of support I’ve received. My mom passed away when I was just a teenager, and although she’s not here physically, she is spiritually. I feel in my life every day. Over the past month, I’ve realized that she isn’t the only one cheering me on. Y’all are also lighting a fire under my tush.
Thanks to a few folks, most notably a friend who is allowing me to stay at her place, the goal has been reduced from $3,800 to $2,800. Material costs have also be lowered thanks to businesses who have offered to produce materials at no cost. See below for new breakdown.
Your funding will support:
1. Participation in The Lingerie Collection ($2,200)
2. Material costs, including but not limited to, displays, handouts, hangers, business cards,
booklets and more ($850) ($450)
3. Travel costs ($750)
What this means is that we are only $400 away from making our goal! I TOTES think that we can make it. A little goes a long way, so even $5 is much appreciated. Click here to donate now!
Just as a reminder, as a small token of my appreciation, I will give away a pair of the Nina panty to 3 folks , who will be chosen once the goal is met. Additionally, if you donate more than $100, you will receive a 30% discount to either a bra workshop or a Nina bralette or panty. If we exceed the new goal of $2,600, I will donate the rest to The Bra Recyclers, a bra recycling company that has partnered with Bra Recycling Ambassadors to recycle over 1 million bras to help women in need.
FEBRUARY 17 / UPDATE: We made the goal! Thank you to everyone who donated! At this point, whatever is contributed will go to The Bra Recyclers. Stay tuned next week for an unveiling of the Madalynne Fall/Holiday 2017 line.
