You might not expect this from a small furniture company in Vermont, but two of us who work here are bellydancers! (I know, weird right?!) I started teaching classes in Brattleboro last summer, and Liz has been taking them with me ever since. Bellydance is a great way to build confidence, positive body image, and it’s a pretty great workout too!
Today, January 18th 2014, I am hosting a bellydance benefit show for the Womens Freedom Center of Brattleboro. The Womens Freedom center supports women who have been victims of domestic violence with Shelter, a 24 hour safety hotline, Support groups, community education, safety planning, and more! They have been a major part of the Brattleboro community and I’m so glad to be hosting this benefit for them.
What’s even greater is the fact that the Brattleboro community (surrounding towns included) have shown an overwhelming amount of support for our benefit show– including Vermont Woods Studios.
On Saturday, January 18th (today!) Vermont Woods Studios has offered to donate $20 from every order to go towards our benefit for the Womens Freedom Center!
