A Small Tibetan Family Needs Your Help to Open a Storefront

A Small Tibetan Family has started a kickstarter campaign to get funding for opening a storefront in the Raleigh area for handcrafted Tibetan beads, pendants and jewelry supplies. Recently I caught up with Tsering L to learn more about the effort; here’s what she told me:

What is the social benefit you hope to achieve with or through your crowdfunding campaign?

I make traditional & modern style Tibetan Jewelry & crafts in Nepal. I am responsible for creating this cottage industry of materials & supplies that are used in my designs & supports many Tibetan & Nepalese artisan families working with us.

How much money are you hoping to raise and why? How much have you raised so far?

My goal is to raise $30,000 on Kickstarter to support opening a storefront for my designs. Funds will be used for securing the retail space for approximately 6 months, furnishings, rewards for the backers, commissions & fees,  & anything left over will be used for products.

Whom are you trying to help with your project and why?

My project helps Tibetan refugee artisans & Nepalese artisans. Most of them have not had any schooling and are only skilled in producing these craft supplies.

What rewards, if any, are you offering to your supporters?

My rewards are all listed on my Kickstarter project page.
