Shannon: “In this part of the venture we are getting people to think how they support missional activity beyond just writing a check, asking them to actually take the time and see what they have and then we turn that into capital. It also gets people thinking about other innovative ways to engage in kingdom work. So in the giving there is a stewardship and discipleship aspect and as we do it is also allows people to think more creatively and gives us a platform to help others launch social enterprises and think of what they can do with that they have.”
Shannon: “You might know that I have launched a new initiative with a friend whereby we collect accessories and resale them through boutique events around the world. We did a pilot in the spring in America and found we were onto something. So we are publicly launching in both the US and UK in the autumn.
This initiative is considered a social enterprise because we are tying to create multiple kinds of capital: economic, environmental, social and spiritual. I am excited about this venture and would love for you to go check out the website. www.sweetnotions.org
We really do need help to make this a success… We are still looking for women who will partner with us by clearing out their closets and giving us their accessories they no longer wear, and asking their friends to do the same. If you are interested their is a flier you can download from the website. We are also looking to book more boutique events for the fall calendar. Why don’t you think about hosting an event in your home, office or church??
Check out the site and let me know what you think!
And please pray for me as we launch this new venture.
