Need Ideas for Holiday Shopping?

I got your back. If you're looking for something fun to do with your family this Saturday and need to do some early Christmas shopping I have the perfect idea...for you and the kids! The gifts that keep on giving...

Local businesses and artisans to participate in charitable holiday shopping boutique Saturday, November 13.

Minneapolis, MN – October 25, 2010 – Over two-dozen local businesses and artisans will be featured at Rachel’s Holiday Shopping Boutique on Saturday, November 13, from 10 am to 4 pm. This charitable event will feature a wide variety of personal and unique gifts and services in time for the holidays, and will help raise funds and awareness for The Michelle Project.

Founded in 1996 and based in the Twin Cities, The Michelle Project is a volunteer-led organization, which mentors and supports families with financial need along their journey toward self-sufficiency. Since it’s inception, The Michelle Project has mentored many local families—the majority led by single mothers who have faced challenges in providing for their families on their own.

“I would be willing to go from state to state talking about the importance of starting programs like the Michelle Project. This is a program that enables women to regain their footing toward stable ground. Everybody has needed some support during their lifetime, whether it be financial, informational resources, or just being able to gather with others in quiet retreat. God bless the Michelle Project!” said Denise Jefferson, A Michelle Project Graduate
