Month-Long Fundraiser Grosses $8800

By  |  0 Comments

December 31st marked the last official day of our month-long fundraiser to get the money needed to open our store location in March 2016.  Although we didn’t reach our 31-day goal of $12,000 we are moving forward with opening the store. We were able to raise $8800 through a combination of donations from our supporters and local fundraisers.   We will continue to raise the rest of the money and plan to keep the GoFundMe active for another month.

Because of the support from the community and the Uhuru Movement, Zenzele Consignment will be a reality.   

Follow us on Facebook and continue to check back here for updates on the store and amazing fashion inspiration, on a budget.

It will help AAPDEP fund self-reliance development projects in African communities all over the world.
