The monthly market, Le Petit Marche, is here once again and this month’s edition promises to be a memorable one. This month, LPM is not only celebrating their second anniversary but will also teaming up the Freedom Foundation.
Here’s their official press release:
Hello Dear Friends!
We hope the year has taken off to a great start, we know it has for us!
LPM is turning 2 years old on Sunday, 27th of February 2011, and we are
proud and grateful for the immense support from everyone!
To celebrate our 2nd anniversary, we are giving you the opportunity to
make a significant impact in the lives of hundreds of Nigerians alongside
Freedom Foundation; an NGO, which was set up in 2001 to carry out the
mandate of pioneering social reformation within communities. It was
established as a non-profit organization committed to affecting society by
empowering individuals who are affected by various categories of social
and economic disadvantage (drug addicts & sex workers for example). The
individuals Freedom Foundation rescues are vulnerable. Some were sold by
their own parents as barter for debts, and from ages as young as 13, they
have been drugged up to work the streets of Lagos, serving as objects to
enrich other men – men who bully and threaten their lives, e-ver-y-day.
With many reasons to give thanks, we’ve decided to partner with this great
organization to raise funds for the Ladies who reside in Genesis House,
where they are fully re-habilitated and nurtured to become better/stronger
women with strong values in their community. With this in mind we were
wondering what MORE can we GIVE? We thought hard about this, and came up
to the an equation that ends up as the BIGGEST Fashion Market Party Lagos
is yet to see:
MORE Space + MORE Vendors = MORE Merrier People.
Seeing as it is a Celebration we will have a Food Court, selling a variety
of food, drink and confectionary, a lounge area where documentaries of the
great work being done by the freedom foundation will be displayed, and
even a DJ!
We trust and thank you in advance for being a part of this positive and
impactful initiative as we all get to make a difference in the lives of
hundreds of Women, who are simply victims of society. We hope you join Le
Petit Marche (LPM) to GIVE a large percentage of the proceeds raised from
the rental of stalls and donate to the good work of the freedom
foundation! So please, help make a difference!
We will be taking stall reservations at firstname.lastname@example.org for a large
variety of vendors including:
– Fashion designers
– Men and women High street fashion
– Shoes and bags
– Food and drink
– Home Essentials and more
For this anniversary in February we will be hosting you at the The Harbor Point, from 12 noon till 8pm.
