Currently I am growing the TJF team, which currently consists of a bunch of angels (working for free) that believe in the value of TJF and the value this brand will bring to so many others.
The plan to propel TJF forward includes the project, the people, and the product:
- THE PROJECT: Haiti Video -
I am planning another trip to Haiti this January with my friends at Rebuild Globally and plan to execute an informative/educational video while I’m there on the effects our clothing waste has had in their culture and environment and how I plan to help.
- THE PEOPLE: Education -
I am eager to educate young students aspiring to be in the fashion industry yet hesitant as to where they belong and fit it. Young men and women are wanting to join the new fashion movement but have little choices as to where to ethically and socially begin. I'm currently putting together an attainable curriculum that will be available come next year for young entrepreneurs interested in all areas of the fashion industry. Designers, makers, models, photographers etc.
- THE PRODUCT: Tammy Jo Fashion -
Lastly as I continue to make collections and release them to the world I need upfront financial support to buy the used goods I create with. Used goods that I purchase that helps prevent them from being forgotten and end up in landfills and other countries, and used goods that support other local charities and small businesses like your local thrift store, salvation army, mom and pop antique shops, local vintage shops and other amazing charities like Strawberry Fields in Central PA, where I get a ton of my material and all proceeds benefit servicing children and adults with disabilities.
If you want to take part in the project, the people and the product, please donate whatever amount you'd like to contribute. You can update the number below to reflect how much you'd like to give in $50 increments. Whether you can contribute $50 or $500, I am eternally grateful for your support and love.
