3GS Charity Event Hosed at TSS
TSS member, Trish Barillas hosted 3GS Charity Event for Guatemala at Thompson Square Studios on July 23rd. Three charities came together for one night in support of a great cause. Proceeds from the event supports the empowerment of indigenous woman and children in Guatemala to help break out of the cycle of poverty by providing opportunities for education and access to healthcare.
The event partnered with Mercado Global, a Brooklyn-based accessory brand and non-profit that empowers rural Latin American women to become entrepreneurs. Through donor-funded business education and leadership programs, the company helps women create community businesses to support themselves and their families. The collections are designed for the international market while using traditional local weaving techniques.
3GS raised $7500.00 to be donated to Guatemala.
