    Surprising the interns at Sisterhood Boutique with a shopping spree

    Day 50

    Shop Til You Drop

    This past week, we’ve been working with the women of Sisterhood Boutique to transform their retail space. But because of the big changes to the store, the work throughout the week was pretty disruptive. There’s no doubt it impacted their business during the week – so we wanted to do something to help.

    So after the big reveal, we surprised the youth from their internship program by sponsoring a shopping spree at the boutique!
    They could shop for an outfit from the store for themselves, and an outfit for someone in their life that would benefit most. It was a win win!

    The girls were given time to shop in the newly designed space. And Yasameen was truly touched by the gesture – “Wow, you guys are the best!”

    They loved the opportunity to pick out clothes for others. “I’m picking out clothes for my older sister,” said Amira, “She’s going to be super surprised about the new space when she comes to visit!”

    “They are trying on everything – there are shoes everywhere!”
    said Yasameen. “They are really loving this.”

    For this final idea with Sisterhood Boutique, we were glad to leave a lasting impression – an opportunity for the youth to pay it forward, and a key lesson from the program they’re in. What a great way to wrap it all up!
