A Rainbow of Wallets

Il Bussetto wallets

 

Happy Thursday! The sun has made a quick appearance today, but these long, gray, gloomy days have us yearning for color! A small way to add some chroma to your life is through your personal accessories. Il Bussetto has some cheery hues for your card carrying and it can make all the difference. Have you ever tried looking for a black wallet in a dark handbag? A pop of color can bring a smile to your face and make it less frustrating! But, hey, if you like black we have those options too.

To see more of our Il Bussetto collection go to our website resoul.com. For mood board inspiration follow us on Pinterest.

Shoe Drive for YouthCare

re-souL shoe drive youthcare

Every year our neighborhood of Ballard does a little something different for Black Friday. Local shops and businesses donate a portion of their Friday sales to a local charity. This year re-souL has partnered with YouthCare. In addition to donating a portion of our sales for the day, we will be kicking off our shoe drive to help collect shoes for homeless youth in need.

Unfortunately, Seattle is experiencing a rise of homeless people living on the streets. Each night in Seattle, up to 1,000 young people have no safe place to sleep. With over 40 years of experience, YouthCare builds confidence and self-sufficiency for homeless youth by providing outreach, basic services, emergency shelter, housing, counseling, education and employment training.

Facts about Youth Homelessness

‚ÄĘ 32,494 students in WA public schools were homeless in the 2013-2014 school year.

‚ÄĘ 40% of homeless youth identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ); many were kicked out for coming out to their parents or guardians.

Facts about YouthCare

With multiple sites and a continuum of individualized services, through YouthCare in 2014:

‚ÄĘ Nearly 1,400 young people accessed basic services during drop-in hours at YouthCare‚Äôs James W. Ray Orion Center.

‚Äʬ†572 young people found safety in YouthCare’s emergency shelters, with nearly 2/3 exiting into improved housing situations.

‚ÄĘ 164 young people were housed in YouthCare’s¬†transitional living programs, with over 60% exiting into more stable housing situations.

‚ÄĘ 310 youth accessed employment training and education opportunities.

Hello!

We have so much to tell you! It’s already November and we’ve been so busy getting ready for the holiday season, we thought we should catch you up!
