The co-owners of The Little Market Box Shawnda Blacklock and Julianna Tan (who just received the 2021 RBC Ones to Watch Entrepreneur Award) have been collecting donations for Abeda and Zainab at their store located at 808 16th Street West in Saskatoon. On Saturday, one of their regular customers donated $10,000 to support Abeda and Zainab’s sponsorship, a huge boost to our fundraising campaign.
Jade Good and Lisa Evans, owners of the Glam Bar Hair and Esthetic Studio at #101 412 Willowgrove Square, also donated to Abeda and Zainab’s sponsorship, saying Nest is their Christmas charity. Whoo hoo! This is the first time a Saskatoon business has made Nest their charity of choice!
“These are business women with heart,” says Nest member Gayle Nemeth, one of the organizers of the Nest fundraising drive. “I am so impressed these young women are helping us bring two more young women to Saskatoon.”
