We've been fully funded??

Hi, Friends! 


By now, you have all received an email saying we have been fully funded. No, it was not a phishing email. It’s true! We have been fully funded! 


I am honored and proud to announce that Makeda Mikael Work Bags has been selected to team up with American Express for their 100for100 program. This is huge! Not only does it come with a financial award (hence, the email announcing we’ve been fully funded), but it also comes with four months of educational resources, mentorship, and so much more!

I must take this opportunity to tell you that your support was vital to landing this partnership. Because the crowdfunding campaign was so successful, it caught the attention of the team over at iFundWomen and American Express. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for everything you did to make this campaign successful. 


And more good news! Most of you have already received your rewards with the exception of the signature products. If you ordered a signature product in addition to other rewards, they will all be mailed out in one package, so don’t be concerned if you haven’t received anything yet!  We are working hard at making sure these products get to you as quickly as possible. Production has officially started and should be completed soon. Due to the current delay with the postal service, please know international orders may take longer than anticipated. We will provide an update as soon as production has been completed. Thank you for your understanding. 


If you’d like to follow along on our business journey, please subscribe to our email list over at, or follow us on social media.


Thank you so much for your support!

Makeda Mikael
