Dear Justice and Soul Supporters, *** POSTPONED ***
As you are likely aware, Governor Jay Inslee has issued a State of Emergency for Washington State due to the spread of COVID-19 or coronavirus. Subsequent messages from the CDC and Seattle-King County Public Health have asked community and business leaders to consider postponing events and gatherings in order to help slow the spread of the virus.
After lengthy discussions with our board and out of respect to our community leaders, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Fashion SOULstice. As you can imagine, this was a very challenging decision given our passion for our organization's mission and the importance of this event to our programs-but the last thing we want is to contribute to the spread of this virus or to jeopardize anyone's health.
To all of you who made plans, purchased tickets, and looked forward to supporting our organization and celebrating our successes-we thank you for being a part of Justice and Soul's work. We are working out the details for a new date and promise to notify you as soon as we have more information.
For those who have purchased tickets, you have three options. 1) You may hold on to your ticket and use it for the new event date; 2) you can have your ticket price converted to a donation making it fully tax deductible; 3) you can request a refund and one of our team members will process it in the coming weeks. Please email us and let us know your preference (firstname.lastname@example.org). Our events usually raise over $150,000 so we do appreciate any gift you are willing to share.
While this unexpected turn of events may slow us down, it certainly will not stop us from doing our work. On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to extend a warm thank you for your continued support of the Justice and Soul Foundation!
Justice and Soul Foundation is actively working to restore hope in the lives of victims of the sex trafficking industry. We strive to transform survivors, and those at-risk, into confident, self-sufficient and financially independent individuals by teaching them cosmetology, (hair, make-up, and nails), business, and life skills.
