#Shimmer440

Last night I had the most amazing time sipping, shopping and social networking for an amazing cause at Shimmer Boutique. The sip & shop was benefiting the YWCA of Greater Atlanta Women in Transition Program (WIT). WIT is an 18 month program that provides shelter for women and children that have been left homeless due to domestic violence, relocation, eviction, job loss or foreclosure. The unique program allows the families to live together in dormitory style housing with communal bathrooms, kitchens and entertainment areas. The program empowers & educates the women on " identifying and cultivating economic opportunities, sustainable employment, and life skills necessary to retain employment and maintain stable homes for their families."


Whenever I go to these events, I am always so overwhelmed and elated by how generous the women of Atlanta can be. Denise, owner of Shimmer Boutique was gracious enough to be the host location and 3 amazing ladies (Dea @pgrdresses, Sojourner @sojournerruth, Monica @freelollipops), championed the cause. There were amazing give-a-ways provided my yours truly and several other brands, as well as complimentary beauty demonstrations. I ran into some of my favorite ladies and met lots of new friends. There is no greater feeling than giving back and being surrounded by positive women encouraging each other. 


Stay tuned, a follow up article will be coming soon on the WIT program. They have an ongoing wish list and if you are looking to give back, this is an amazing charity to consider. For more information visit www.ywcaatlanta.org/women-transition
