Hi. I'm Marisa Spagnoletti, owner of Lucy's Gift. An amazing boutique that sells a wide variety of wonderful gift items including handbags, accessories and unique jewelry. We're small in size, but we are great in heart - what makes us truly unique is that 100% of our net profits go to charity, in memory of my beloved husband and father of my only child, who died a hero.
My beloved husband was brutally "assassinated" on June 15,2011 and I am now fully devoted, 24/7, to my child, seeking justice for him and all crime victims and my mission.
As all small businesses we're struggling during this time and need your help now to keep our doors from closing forever!
Over the past few years we're proud of the start we have made to raise a fortune to donate to The Maurice J. Spagnoletti Foundation to END ALL VIOLENCE/HATE/CRIME and discrimination. We've made great strides in supporting those in need, especially children, and support all fallen heroes and their children. See the great work we do at http://www.mauricejspagnoletti.com/
How your contribution will help!
Your contributions will all go to ensure that Lucy's Gift's continues to thrive as a vital member of our community. Today, as our doors remain closed, we are still incurring staggering and growing monthly bills including rent and utilities in addition to seasonal needs like air conditioner replacement. We are making every effort to continue paying key staff members, and hoping that we receive greatly needed financial relief before they have the need to seek employment elsewhere. As we prepare for re-opening, we are redesigning the store to accommodate social distancing and taking steps to sanitize the store regularly in full accordance with all health guidelines. Finally, going forward, we are going to be part of the solution as our country heals. While we are not doctors or virologists, we will continue to support our heroes in any way we can, as well as feature new, inspirational gifts that can help alleviate people's stress as we head towards a brighter future.
The simple fact is, between March 8th and June 1st Lucy's Gift has lost 90% of income.
So while it goes against everything I stand for as an independent, self-sufficient woman entrepreneur, in order to continue to raise money to expand our boutique and support missions all over this great nation, I must ask for your contribution to help us over this rough patch. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for anything you can contribute. Even in these uncertain times I remain confident we will all come back stronger than ever. We've been reminded of what really matters in our lives, and it's a valuable lesson. I assure you that once we get through this there is no stopping us!
Thank you for your contribution! UNITED THROUGH LOVE, FAITH & SUPPORT we are creating positive change.
