Girl Getter: A fundraiser for Interval House of Ottawa

I'm still on a high from last weekend when I participated in Ottawa's first Girl Getter Pop-Up Shop. The event was organized by Rachel Sendi-Mukasa, the founder of Girl Getter; an event platform for female entrepreneurs to showcase their product or service, while raising money for other women in need. 

Funds raised were donated to Interval House of Ottawa, an organization that provides a safe place for women who have been the victims of violence.

Interval House of Ottawa empowers all persons who identify as women and their dependents. In partnership with the community, we provide safe shelter and support, intervention and prevention services, and advocacy to break the cycle of violence.

Rachel's journey to Girl Getter took her quite sometime. She started off by visiting pop-up shops in Ottawa and noticed that none were specifically geared for women entrepreneurs. She decided to make it her mission to create an event platform for women to showcase their products or services while helping other women in need. 

I personally believe giving back is important and I think women helping women is a perfect way to spread a little love, while encouraging women to come shop as well.

Rachel on natural beauty (... because I always ask)
I believe natural beauty comes from within, it’s really about who you are as a person and knowing your purpose. 

 The Pop-Up Shop was a great success, I got to meet so many people and got to share my love of green & ethical beauty. I was also feeling the magic in the room by being surrounded by other female entrepreneurs. In case you couldn't make it, here's all of them.
