2017 WAS A BIG YEAR FOR US, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE IT'S THE YEAR WE WERE BORN!
WE WANT TO THANK YOU NOT ONLY FOR BEING A PART OF SOUL SHAPERS, BUT FOR BEING THE FUEL AND DRIVE OF THIS COMMUNITY. SOUL SHAPERS IS FOR YOU -- TO INSPIRE YOU, ENCOURAGE YOU, CONNECT WITH YOU, AND SIMULTANEOUSLY GIVE BACK TO THOSE IN NEED.
HERE ARE THE TOP HIGHLIGHTS FOR OUR FIRST YEAR:
1. OUR LAUNCH!
-->> The launch of Soul Shapers was a long time coming and had so much hard work and love behind it. The support and engagement from you guys was a success, and established the excitement that would shape and fuel our journey.
2. OUR FIRST FEATURED SOUL SHAPERS!
-->> There's something quite special behind each of these individuals who are on their own journeys to make a difference in the world and encourage you to do the same..
Thank you to each of them for trusting the path and vision of Soul Shapers.
3. THE FIRST SS EVENT!
-->> Our collab with Expansive Voice was a success and incredibly moving. The day was well spent with chakra crystal healing, lunar wisdom, yoga, delicious food, essential oil tutorials, meditation, connecting, and raising money + awareness for The Her Initiative!
The intimate setting at ALO Yoga's rooftop made for an incredible day with wonderful people.
4. OUR 2ND SS EVENT!
-->> Teaming up with Soul Shaper Andrea of Van De Vort Boutique was not only such a pleasure, but extremely rewarding. We set up a sample sale at the beautiful Poolhouse Rooftop of The Pendry Hotel in Downtown San Diego, selling sample pieces from some of the top brands at Van De Vort.
100% of the proceeds were donated to Hidden Treasures Foundation, a local charity to San Diego that provides relief and resources for Human Trafficking Victims.
>> WE RAISED $5,100 !! <<
Thank you to Van De Vort for their incredible donation of clothing and hard work, and to Pendry Hotel for their space and hard work.
5. LAUNCH OF THE SS PHOENIX TEE!
-->> Drawn by Founder ALDEN STEIMLE, this design was inspired by the Sonoma County Fires that destroyed her Family/Childhood home where her dad was still living, along with 7,000 other homes on October 9th, 2017.
Fires near her current home in San Diego, CA broke out just a few months after, and donations have since been extended to Southern CA Fire victims.
>> $2,270 HAS BEEN RAISED BY THE SS PHOENIX TEES! <<
6. HOLIDAY POP-UP WITH PRISM BOUTIQUE!
-->> Being a part of a special Holiday Pop-Up with some of the best local small businesses was an honor. That was also the first day the SS Phoenix Tee was available for sale and the support was incredible.
7. ENCINITAS MAKERS MARKET!
-->> A huge thank you to Encinitas Makers Market for fitting us in last minute at the the Makers Market! We were able to sell the SS Phoenix Tees and meet with some of you guys who have been followers and huge supporters on instagram! That was a special day and allowed us to raise more money for Fire victims through Tee sales before the Holidays.
8. LAST BUT NOT LEAST: THE MONEY RAISED!
