A friend of mine came up with a brilliant idea to help those affected by Hurricane Houston. She knows quite a few self-employed consultants and decided she’d host a shopping event in her home. All vendors would have to pledge a percentage of their profits towards relief efforts for Houston. She would match whatever was donated.
I immediately asked her if I could participate not only as a buyer, but as a vendor. I wanted to help those in need. I can’t imagine what people in Houston are going through now – and what it must feel to have your life turned upside down like that. I am drawn to the idea that my hobby could somehow help others.
I am so excited for this event. With all the horrible things going on today, it’s nice that we can come together and do something good. As a Poshmark seller, I am definitely in a different category than the other vendors who are joining. However, I’m hoping that the variety I have will gather some interest.
I can’t even begin to describe my anticipation. As soon as I signed up, I thought of all the items I could bring, and how much I could donate from each sale. I started thinking of ways to really draw in supporters. I also started rallying a few others who may be interested to sell for the cause as well. I’m confident that our little boutique will provide a generous donation to the cause.
And now…a little bonus! A portion of the sales from my Poshmark closet from today until Sunday will be included in my contribution to the cause. Click here to shop! If you haven’t joined Poshmark, join here and enter code HWUQL for $5 credit!

A little goes a long way!
