Hey She Spends fam! Alicia checking in here from freezing cold Western Pennsylvania. I know we promised that we would be taking advantage of our vacation days this week, but I wanted to pop in to share some exciting news about our fundraiser for Bottomless Closet.
We have received a donation from the Rockstar Finance Community Fund to use for Bottomless Closet, which is a New York City-based nonprofit that provides women in the search for employment with clothes and resources. We are putting together makeup bags with personal hygiene products, makeup, menstrual products and more for Bottomless Closet in early January, and this donation helps us to give even more bags to the group.
The Rockstar Finance Community Fund is super cool. Financial bloggers across the United States pool their resources to do good throughout the year. This donation is a part of the group's year-end celebration event. In 2017, the fund was able to deploy $20,692 in donations, which is so cool!
We're beyond thankful for this support from the Rockstar Finance community, and we look forward to supporting our local and global communities in the coming year.
