The last week before Christmas tends to be a bit of a high tension time here. There is a buzz in there air - anticipation of seeing family, friends and lots of events happening.
Today, we had a photoshoot, featuring four of our clients, where all of them were styled by our volunteer, Darelle, and photographed in the Royal Bank, downstairs.
Before her shoot, one of the clients gave us this card.
She was quite nervous before the shoot, especially since she was going last. When she returned and was packed up and ready to go, she told us how happy she was that we could do this and that it was the best Christmas she has ever had.
In the month of December, we will be sharing the stories, experiences and triumphs of clients who have used our programing. And during these 25 days (December 5 - 31), we are campaigning to raise enough funds to put at least 25 more women through our programming.
To give one women access to the whole suite of programs at Dress for Success Vancouver, it costs the organization approximately $150 ($12.50 a month). Help us raise $3750 by donating this holiday season or giving the gift of a donation.
