Appeals Letter from Cal!

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am excited to introduce Jior (Your) Couture, a new organization we launched with the mission of supporting struggling moms throughout 3rd World Latin America and sponsoring local artists in the community. Previously, we have established and run a Chicago based fashion house with many “Fashion with Heart” initiatives in a collaborative team effort, including: charitable events supporting artists and athletes with disabilities; youth depression and suicide awareness and prevention events; and developed local TV programs with national and international magazine platforms for local artists to increase their reach and exposure. We are reaching out to you for support to meet our goal of $100,000 to realize the mission of Jior (Your) Couture.

Thinking big, we are broadening the scope of Jior (Your) Couture from a local initiative to a global charitable reach, using new trends in wearable technology to drive the initiative forward. Our primary objective is to provide, at an American wage, steady artesian work-from-home opportunities to struggling moms in 3rd World Countries throughout Latin America. Additionally, we sponsor struggling local artists through a brand new innovative tap-and-share wearable-tech smartphone readable platform we developed, which the artists in the community use to promote themselves and their work in our virtual society.

We are at a pivotal stage for Jior (Your) Couture, where your support will assist us with opening up a new training and operations base in Quintana Roo, Mexico that will provide paid training to our struggling moms so that they may support their families through the project’s charitable initiative. Your support will also assist us to produce a documentary and video based visual media recording of each part of the production process that our moms will be trained and engaged to produce items for resell to thereby perpetually sustain the initiative. Another turning point for us is the upgrading of our manufacturing capabilities to meet new requirements for a larger manufacturing facility so that we may sponsor more local Artists. We also plan to direct one third of every dollar of your support toward the materials and manufacturing costs for our Sponsored Local Artists' wearable tech smart-wears.

Your invaluable support will make a huge difference in the lives of many, and certainly our relentless persistence and fiery passion together with your generous support will translate into a reality full of hope and joy for the lives of our struggling moms and local artists.

Exciting News! Did you see the webpage with Behind the Scenes with our Celebrity Shoot with Nyle Dimarco? This newly Enthroned and final America's Next Top Model is a leader in the Deaf Community! The wearable-tech in the Wardrobe we provided through Joir Coutrue has his very own Virtual Spokesperson, so he can communicate without Language Barriers! How Empowering!

Read about how awesome of a person he is in person, and how easy he is to work with despite the language barrier! We did learn some ASL basics, like, YES YES, MORE, FIERCE, No no, ect that helped in the photo shoot. WE really did not even have to use the sign for NO NO because he almost read our minds exactly! What an amazing Model! Our Photographer Virginia Rose Hodges was besides herself!!!! Our HMUA Tone Jackson fell in love with this guy!
