Moments With Growth & Development

Project 2022-03-10 15:18:05 +1300

Moments With Growth & Development is a 30 day campaign made to fund the accessibility and growth of our already established gift box company Moments With Love. We run a successful disability owned business that creates & curates gift boxes that contain disability owned and social enterprise products. Not only that, our boxes come with cherishable memories, moments to enjoy with the ones you love most! Very recently we have been put in a tough situation, Easter Sunday we were given 21 days to find a new store. We are currently a small team of three (+ volunteers) with a lot of work on our hands. We would be most appreciative of any  help we could get with the funding of this relocation and would love the oppurtunity to expand! By supporting our campagin - we would be able to employ people with and without disabilities and give them an oppurtunity. We believe the disabled community deserves much more! We want to continue this work, we feel we are just warming up... Can you help us reach $35K in 30 days?

On the 3rd December 2021 with the help of family & friends, we were able to open a pop up store in Silverdale. This was a risk as we had no idea how it might play out + covid, but within 9 weeks of hard work we were able to give back $10,000 to the disability community! Our goal is to continue to do this on a bigger scale and is the main reason for our campaign!

 

About our project & What the funding will go towards 


- At least $10,000 of this funding will help Moments With Love make their new store accessible including their toilet, reception counter and also fund their temperature control. As of recently on Easter Sunday we were given 21 days notice to vacate our old premises. It was always our plan to move to a more accessible location, but due to this our circumstances have become urgent. We have already found a new shop in Orewa which is perfect for us! It only needs a few more accessible features which is what our funding will help go towards. The main feature that is not currently accessible is our toilet. We need to renovate and adjust some of the walls behind the store to make this toilet accessible for ourselves and customers with disabilities. Our new workspace would provide accessiblity for parking and accessible entry spaces. With the old workspace also being uninsurable it meant we could not sub lease our space to people who would make good use of it - which is something we would love to do. Many of our partners already run workshops and tutorials (cupcake making, mandella art classes, knitting circles) to name a few. We would love to be able to host these in our space while we are not using it. We feel this would promote community connection as well as disability and diversity awareness. Helping us helps the community

$2,000 to $5,000 we would like to dedicate to work experience opportunities that we hope will lead to the employment of disabled people. The employment of disabled people, people with mental health and people with other barriers to employment. To be able to help them work with a living wage and create support for those who need it. We have close links with YES disability and Project Employ and can easily make this a reality! We have always envisoned having a team of people similar to us help us in our store and we believe by giving them the opportunity it will boost self esteem in the community as a whole. We would love to give them the opportunity! And if they would like the option to learn about how to start a small business themselves - we would like to help them achieve that. Already we have the Chris Love Foundation which is set up and ready to distribute micro loans & mentorship to those who need it & will be independently looked over by the team.

- To save the laugh and fuss we would kindly like to redirect you to our social media pages (@momentswithlovenz) as our current website isn't all that jazz. We've spent time and money in upgrading our website but it is not up to the standard we need at all! Many people have come to us confused and skeptic and we at MWL want to fix this urgently. We desperately need a website upgrade and would like to use $10,000+ of our funding towards upgrading it. We have already invested $2000+ into our current website, but customers have told us personally it isn't as easy to navigate through as we would've originally liked. Not only that but building a custom gift box or purchasing something in general doesn't run as smoothly as we would've hoped. This is a very costly part of our campaign but we feel is the most crucial as a lot of people are shopping online nowadays we believe this will be where most our revenue eventually comes from. We need to have our website accessible to all people with or without disabilities.

- The team at MWL would like $5,000 to put towards a new product development and inventory. We would love the chance to stock more social enterprises and locally owned products! We believe by supporting these businesses we support the ones who need it most, and by having a wide variety of products the creations of our gift boxes will become unlimited! We also believe that by stocking more of our own products we will save enormous amounts of money by creating and selling our own instead of paying high retail price for others. Currently all stock is on consignment and this has been a wonderful way to start and whilst we appreciate the generosity from our suppliers we would love the opportunity to be able to buy stock in bulk and directly - which in turn saves a lot of time spent on admin. In the near future on a 2 year road map, we will be employing people to make our own brand kits & bath and body care. Evolution and sustainability made by people with disabilities.

- Finally we need $5000 for a Business Growth HUB. We would love to open a Growth HUB for the local community and anybody wanting to know how to start up or how to grow a small business! This growth HUB will be targeted for anybody that feels they need the assistance (disabled or not) and will also have its very own section in our store dedicated to it where people can come in and learn of new business schemes and how to go about opening something similar to what we have! We have a charity arm called the Chris Love Foundation which 5% of our yearly profits go into. This foundation will have its own independant trustees and will give micro loans to people who have come through our Growth HUB who have a solid business plan to start their own. Giving them that head start. After we proved the concept we will apply to external funds to continue to grow this section of work. We are also connected to Manaaki to furthermore help expand this.

 

Pledge little or Pledge lots! 

Every little bit goes a long long way and to reward our pledgers we have many small gifts such as custom mugs, tote bags, t shirts and hats! Bigger rewards such as a Cupcake Making Class with VanillaChic and a Custom Giftbox Experince + Behind The Scenes! A very special reward will be given away to a person who pledges a generous $5K so pledge now!

- The rewards will get better with the amount of compassion - so help us! So we can further help others :)

 

We appreciate all and every contribution to our funding campaign! And we at Moments With Love want to continue to give back in every way we possibly can, for more information on us or to order your very own giftbox visit our website below
