Today Emerge was featured on the front page of the Lifestyle section in the Boston Globe, and the outpouring of support has been truly inspirational. I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve received from people supporting our organization. The emails usually come in one of three forms:
1) I want to buy jewelry but you’re Etsy store is sold out!! Help!
2) You guys are great! Keep on saving the world!
3) You guys are great AND I want to buy jewelry!
For those of you in the first camp, my advice is (1) check the Etsy site again … we are posting products as fast as we can and (2) if you’re in the Boston area, come to our Mother’s Day Sale on May 2nd and 7th. We’re getting a brand-new shipment of jewelry soon, and will have much more inventory at that time. In addition, thank you for supporting our cause. It’s through the sale of jewelry that Emerge has been able to have a positive impact in the lives of over 60 Sri Lankan teenage mothers.
For those of you in the second camp, thank you for your support. I got involved with Emerge a little over 7 months ago, and my heart and soul has truly been poured into this project. Your encouragement and positive reinforcement is a perfect example of the type of community that Emerge is aiming to build in Sri Lanka and between Sri Lanka and the United States.
Finally, for those of you in the third camp, you’re my rockstars. Keep spreading the word about Emerge!
All my best, Ellen Sojka
