Dear Friends and Family,

I have made this page to try and raise money for a 2K walk on October 19th to raise money for Artistri Sud's new Chile initiative. Artistri Sud is a non-profit that uses business training to empower women in developing countries to start their own businesses and break the cycle of poverty. This past year, Artistri Sud has been working with women weavers in Bolivia to equip them with the knowledge and support they need to expand and promote their textiles and create sustainable businesses. This program has been a tremendous success, with an average increase in sales of 57%. With these encouraging results, we are getting ready to start another initiative working with women artisans in Chile. This purpose of this walk is to raise money to get this project on its feet.

As some of you know, Artistri Sud was the first organization I got involved in after moving to Montreal, and it has a special place in my heart because of the sincerity of its mission and the hardworking determination of its volunteers. I would appreciate any donations you could give to support me on this walk and help these women make a better tomorrow for themselves and their children. 

Thank you!

Sincerely,

Dana
