Our inspiration: Every school year, there’s a child who can’t help but feel anxious about school starting. This child is embarrassed because they know school starting means getting teased for clothes that are too small and worn out. Worst of all, Mommy doesn’t have the money to buy new ones…Mia’s Closet hosts events and creates permanent boutique locations to do our part in fighting negative stigmas for the child described above.
Mia’s Closet Boutique Pop Up Store:
Clothing donations are used to stock the Mia’s Closet Boutique. The space is created by volunteers the day of the event.
The day of the event:
Volunteer stylists will shop with our participants one on one to assist each girl with putting together tasteful outfits. The girls will receive positive messages such as encouragement to dress appropriately, good judgment online/public image, the importance of self-esteem/confidence and a particular focus on the value of education and planning for the future.
