I have always had a passion for helping others, especially when their situations are at no fault of their own. Even when I would go on vacation or drive down the road, I would make a friend and seek out individuals who need the help of some kind. Sometimes it was just a hug, a smile, or an ear to listen. Sometimes it was just a couple of dollars for a meal. If it was my last 2 dollars I was going to give it to them! Those were small things for me but HUGE to them. Although giving what I could never felt enough and financially that was all I could do. SO......I thought of this great idea of starting a website and selling great products where customers have the option to give back if they feel driven to do so. Hey! THIS MIGHT WORK!! We (Crimson Soul Boutique and our customers) can do this together I thought. We can make more than one or two people smile. We can create a world of smiles!! I spoke of my ideas years ago but in my past life situation, everyone said that this idea would never work and said it was a silly idea. They had convinced me over time that it would not work, so I gave up. Fast forward to today, a few years of maturity, life experiences, and a great group of friends... I took the leap. I never thought I could do anything let alone start a business. I did a lot of soul searching. I weeded those naysayers out of my life for good. It was just too negative and even I wasn't able to help them see the light. I started brainstorming and became consumed with making life better for others around me who grew up in situations out of their control, and who felt helpless and useless. Our goal here at Crimson Soul Boutique is to make others smile, and give them a helping hand when others may look the other way. The goal of Crimson Soul Boutique is to do our part together with YOU! You will have the opportunity to give back with each sale to charities like Saint Jude's, Humane Society, and to individuals causes who may just need a few groceries, Christmas for their kiddos, Blankets for the homeless, and more. The possibilities are endless really. Please join me in making this world a better place one person at a time, one day at a time. Sometimes it is just the smallest of things that will change a person's life forever! With each sale, you will have an opportunity to donate $1, $5, $10, or $unlimited or if you cannot donate right now, that is ok too. I only ask that you start each day with a new heart, and a new smile, and try to make one person's day a little brighter and more hopeful. We will be open soon! As we get things ready to open....please invite others to Crimson Soul Boutique. Together we can do anything!
