What is the mission of your company or project? Our mission here on this planet is to help out all our animal rescues and their beloved animals they care for so they can continue to rescue more and continue creating awareness. We created a thrift store to help generate funds by helping the community with low cost gently used goods , recycling items for others to reuse and to help the planet , and giving back to those holding it down for our animal friends. We are an all volunteer ran thrift store , we are different than the others we don't have high paying salaries we are just giving our time back to help others in need. our goal is to one day have multiple locations nationwide to give back to our animal rescues out in the world. Every 4 weeks we donate all the proceeds to the animal rescue we are sponsoring. We want to be able to share the funds with all the rescues worldwide doing good for our beloved animals.
Describe the problem you are solving. We are creating awareness for all animal species , we are here to share information about our rescues that we sponsor for all to come and volunteer , foster, rescue, adopt , to be able to stop overcrowding in our animal shelters, by creating awareness of spay and neuter , and compassion .to stop animal abuse , exploitation. We are helping the planet by providing gently used goods that someone could of thrown away for a low cost to those who are in need in the community.
What is the market size/opportunity? the market size will target all those in the low income community who seek low cost goods ,all animal lovers, people who like thrift stores , who like bargains , treasure hunters , vintage hunters ,resellers and more.
What is your company/product about and how does it solve the problem? Our thrift store is all about recycling used goods and providing them at low cost for our lovely community . Here people can shop for a cause knowing their money will be going to a lovely non profit animal rescue in need. People can come and donate their used goods they are no longer needing to be able to share it instead of throwing it away. We are solving a waste problem , we are creating low cost goods for the low income community , we are creating awareness for our animal friends.
Why are you seeking funding and how will you spend the funding? The reason why I come here is to be able to get more funds to become a non profit , we need money for the cost of a lawyer , and to pay the fee of the application. We are running as a general business however we are still donating all the proceeds to the non profit we work with .We need a credit and debit system , and a security system.We also need to pay advertising for all to see where we are at and enjoy our services. We are also looking to getting our own space , at least 1000 square feet or more to be able to host animal rescue events / host adoptable pets from the rescues we sponsor . we need a bigger space to be able to provide more products for all to come and enjoy to keep the funding going and to bring more volunteers.
Who is on your team? As a non profit you should have at least 3 board members. I have chosen my good friends , Lena Park , Sammi Lopez , and Joyce Romero. I also have my beloved mother who has been with me since this opened and has been volunteering endless hours to make this a reality. Also my father who comes after work everyday and helps with as much as he can.
Thank you for all who have taken the time to read this , I am hoping I can create a difference in the world and help out all our animal species from endangerment , exploitation , abuse and more by creating this lovely thrift shop to create funding to keep helping all those out there holding it down for our animal friends doing their good work , We want to be able to give back
