Give a Hoot for JP kids!

Hi, My name is Shima, I'm an entrepreneur and mom of three awesome kids.For the last 3 years, I have owned and operated my own successful resale children's boutique. I made it a place where families could expect to find quality items for their quickly growing kids from ages newborns to early teens. I would like to bring that to my neighborhood and am asking you to be a part of making that dream a reality.I love what I do and I want to continue what I was doing, but make it even better. I have found a new space and have an expanded vision for what I want my store to be. We're calling it Hoot, and our goal is to provide families with the highest quality children's merchandise at a discount price, in a boutique-like atmosphere. Also, to support our community through customer involvement and strive to change the perception of what a "˜resale store' is. As a local mom-owned business, I am committed to providing our customers a superior shopping experience. From an easy-to-shop layout to little touches like a changing station in the bathroom and of course, a play space for the little ones. I am super excited about this opportunity and have many people in the community who are too. I am feeling incredibly resourced because of all the people that I have met in the local business community. I just need the funds to get going. This is where you come in. Whether it's $5 or $500 that you have to give, believe me, it adds up. In Jamaica, where I'm from, we have a saying: "one one cocoa full basket" meaning every little bit counts and makes a difference. This money will be used to get us off the ground (business licensing, securing the space, racks, etc.).  So, in whatever way you can, please give.  Thank you.Thank you for sharing in my dream.
