Children's Value Boutique is an Well Run Life project to bring vibrant, fun styles to kids and raise money for The Mice Foundation.
Why did you start an On-Line Boutique with so many already out there? What inspires you to start this online boutique?
This Project is primarily a fundraiser for The Mice Foundation (https://www.facebook.com/TheMiceFoundation). We wanted to teach our children about being effective community members. Last year we created a Raffle called the Golf Ball Drop and support a local nonprofit called New Pathways for Youth. It creates mentorship relationships with children all over phoenix.This year we selected UMOM. This is the largest provider of services to the Homeless in Arizona.
10% of the proceeds from our boutique will be given away through this foundation. Please Like of FB and keep track of the money we raise.
We hope people will understand this aspect of our boutique and support us in our efforts to positively affect the community.
Who benefits from the program?
Every year we will pick a new recipient. This year is UMOM
UMOM New Day Centers mission is to prevent and end homelessness with innovative strategies and housing solutions that meet the unique needs of each family and individual.
Founded in 1964, UMOM is the largest homeless shelter for families in Arizona. We keep families together, we provide a continuum of care from emergency shelter to transitional housing and finally, permanent, affordable housing. Families at UMOM have the opportunity to gain the skills, medical care, quality child care, and education they need to rebuild their lives and succeed when they leave.

What kind of products do you sell in this online boutique?
Fun clothes for kids - hats - dresses - bow ties - diaper puches from a new designer call Ralls Designs. This is a designer who hand makes her items. Another small, family owned business.
We also run a 10-Day Detox for people looking to re-boot their diet. We start each Sunday. It is a Whole food program - not a juicing or fasting diet - It is a great way to get back into being healthy.
