Next Saturday we're hosting a "Cash Mob" at Boveda Tribes, a wonderful local, woman-owned business in the heart of Mt. Pleasant, DC (Columbia Heights Metro).Between noon and 3pm, stop by and find beautiful one of a kind pieces from Central/South America, Africa and the Middle East at every price point - starting at $20. Refreshments provided :)
What is a "Cash Mob"?
A cash mob is an economic + community boost. It's group of people who descend on a local business at the same time to make purchases + show some love. The purpose is to support both local businesses and the overall community.
Why we're hosting...
Because the proprietor of Boveda Tribes is just as amazing as her wares. Barbara Cameron personally travels all over the globe for Boveda's jewelry, textiles and home decor. AND she's the Executive Director of the Walk in My Shoes Global Project, a nonprofit organization providing new and gently used shoes to children living in developing countries including Mexico, Ecuador, Uganda, the Congo, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, El Salvador, Columbia, and Senegal.
(If you're interested in donating shoes, email firstname.lastname@example.org! )
