Help Karizmah Dance Shoes, A Small Business

We are a casualty of  the Covid19.

This fundraiser is to help offset the expenses of keeping our staff pd & fixed expenses such as rent, utilities, taxes during these times of halted/slowed consumer activity. (Mandated shelter in place and restrictions!)

Once the restrictions started hitting Dallas in early March, the changes incrementally restricting Dance Events, Dance Studios, Gyms, our consumers started entering hibernation, and by mid March 2020  we were obligated to (temporarily) close the doors for business  altogether during this Shelter In Place . We do have online options, but our customer base prefers in person.

We are a dance shoe store. We feed off the infrastructure of Dance "Gigs": teachers, studios and the like whom were also closed down overnight.  No activity.  No customers. We are all feeling it!

Yet the expenses persist regardless. 

We, at Karizmah, are keeping our staff on payroll,  even though we have little to no incoming business.  But when business comes back, our people are our essentials to Karizmah's longevity. So, we carry on.
 These tragic sudden circumstances do look like they will linger for 4 months or more, and so I'm looking  for any bit of help to hold us through.  People will need to get back on their feet before they can spend extra on dance shoes. 

I know those of us with a passion for the Dance & Arts will carry on, but it's going to be a process.  We have filled out for for the various disaster help/ relief options (PPP etc) & various grants, but no telling how soon or IF that will come through ... 

So, if anyone loves  the Dance Industry, and Dance Shoes/Boots, and can spare a bit... we're here. 
 $20, $30, anything. It all adds up. 

We will be offering gift certificates for any donations received. We will offer double the donated $ amt. These would make wonderful gifts!

We are a Dancers Dream , A Point of Destination Store. 

Let's get through this together.
