This has been so much work behind the scenes, and as we get closer to our launch date, our excitement is growing!! The store will be open to everyone on September 24.
In a nutshell, we wanted to design a store where 100% of the profits would go straight to 127 Place. Imagine that needs arrive in CarePortal and instead of networking and asking for help with each need, we instead had a reserve of money to pull from to immediately help families in crisis. We are so psyched about this.
The other goal that we had was, to the best of our ability, to make sure that your shopping experience is as ethical as possible. It is no secret that much of our clothing and belongings are made in sweatshops, with child slaves, with the abusing of our fellow humans. So the items that we sell from around the world are fairly traded, or made right here in the USA.
What are we going to sell? EEK! We have so many things coming down the pike, but right off the bat, you'll find inspirational items, gift items, things appropriate to gift to your favorite fostering and adopting families, holiday decor, and so much more!
If you're curious and your interest is piqued, we'll let you get EARLY BIRD ACCESS with a special welcome discount when you submit this form:
