My name is Davyn and I'm the Managing Director of Thread Harvest. I wanted to take a few moments to share with you a story about a second chance.
Back in 2012, I had an idea to start a profit for purpose fashion label. I was so passionate about this idea I quit my job that guaranteed me a Visa (I'm originally from South Africa) and poured everything I had into starting Black On Black.
Fast forward 2 years and I had sunk over $20K into a business that had not sold a single unit of clothing. I was tired, I was burned out, I was done. Until I received a second chance.
This second chance wasn't in the form of funding or a new product, it came in the form of people. People willing to come alongside me, to encourage me, to spur me on and help me achieve my goal. That is why I believe in the power of second chances and the importance of working together to create change.
It's also why we have partnered with Parramatta Mission to launch the Second Chance Partnership, an innovative way to help charities like Parramatta Mission expand their revenue streams and increase their impact.
I would love it if you could please check out the Second Chance Partnership section of the website, watch the video that has all the details about this program and why it's so important. Once you've watched it, would you consider giving to the campaign? Every dollar helps in creating real, lasting impact together.
Because on our own we can do so little, but together, we can give everyone a second chance.
I hope you'll consider donating.
