Guess What's Going on in Nashville?

That's Lovely 2 on the left.
Most of you know that Lovely #2 is living and loving life in Nashville. When the family went to visit in June last year (remember when DrummerBoy's band played at the Ryman???) I easily understood why she loves Nashville so much. The food. Was. Awesome. Well, that and the people. I don't think I've ever been in a town or city with nicer more welcoming folks in my life. Apparently, this hospitality and support trickles down from the top.

Nashville has an amazing mayor. Yes, their mayor is amazing (we have a female mayor too. She's nothing like the one in Nashville. Just don't get me started.) My favorite thing about her right now is her support of local women owned start-up businesses. And not just because Lovely #2 fits right into this category but also because I believe in causes such as this--I mean, I am a woman, I have 4 daughters and 1 granddaughter so...

Through iFundWomen Nashville Marketplace and the office of Mayor Megan Barry, the enterprising women of Nashville will receive recognition and, hopefully, the funding they need to further their businesses many of whom support local charities as well.

Lovely 2 and her sweet partner not only have a little business of their own but they also made the cut for the project! Their super cute video would be right here had Blogger allowed me to upload it. Since Blogger is being a stinker, please CLICK HERE or on any of the pictures below to see the video.

So, how does Lovely 2 fit into the iFundWomen Nashville?

She and partner Haylee both work full-time jobs so Twigs + Roots is their passion project/side hustle. They are truly passionate about the products they make, but it costs a lot in time and personal funds to keep it going. They have BIG plans for Twigs + Roots (re-branding, new website, product expansion, wholesale expansion), but, with baby Young on the way (!!!), and DrummerBoy and Lovely 2 buying their first home (!!!), they don't have the means to continue financing everything themselves. No donation is too small, every dollar helps!!!

Why should you consider donating?

These two young women are passionate about educating the public on the negative effects of harmful chemicals and toxins in commercial body care products as well as being a part of the solution. This campaign will serve as a platform for them to do just that – educate and present the public with healthy, natural alternatives to commercial body products.  It will also allow them to continue offering products at prices that are easily accessible to all and assist them in making their products more conveniently available by expanding the wholesale business to local Nashville shops. AND they will finally be able to revamp their packaging, website, and overall brand to reflect the quality of their products!

What if I don't want to donate right now?

Share, share, share! Take a moment to share this post and/or share the link to their iFundWomen page on your personal social media accounts, tell your friends about it!
