Jamaican Mommies by Shanoy Coombs: From Jamaica; for the world


JamaicanMommies goes High Tea for Charity: Here’s why you should too!!!

Want to do something excitingly different for charity? Who’s up for playing her part by being a Queen of Hearts?!!
If you’ve ever wanted to be all dolled up while giving back to charity, this is it!!!
Several times we bemoan that we just don’t give back enough or we don’t know about the right avenues to do so, but here’s a fabulous and fashionable way that is bound to make you feel great on the inside and out.

On Thursday, November 7, 2013, Dress for Success Jamaica will host its Queen of Hearts Tea party under the distinguished patronage of Her Excellency, The Most Honourable Lady Allen. With all the associative Victorian-esque images that tea parties bring, in Jamaica, everything takes on our very own Jamaican twist-so I present to you an ultra chic forum with fabulously dressed ladies, smartly dressed men wearing varied shades of red and enjoying polite conversation, fabulous fare, entertainment and the fulfillment of knowing you are giving back to very worthy cause. There’s also the added bonus of networking with some of Jamaica’s most powerful and inspiring men and women and having the chance to take home beautiful gems from the silent auction.

The cause in question is one which we at Jamaican Mommies hold near and dear. A few years ago, Dressed for Success Jamaica burst on the scene providing inspiration and motivation for disadvantaged women who were on a path to financial independence. Through its career driven initiatives, this charitable entity was able to offer:

  • Workshops on preparing for the job interview
  • Provision of an interview-appropriate attire for the first interview and once the client lands the job, a week’s worth of work attire.
  • Group consultations with a professional stylist and Image Consultant
  • Mentorship
  • Counselling for personal and career development
All with the aim of 

promoting the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

The very positive and inspiring outcome has repeatedly been women who have been transitioned towards self-sufficiency; addressing their social and economic needs in relation to work, home and community. Each woman is a success story: she has gone from unemployment to economic independence.

In continuing its service to humanity, Dress for success Jamaica is on a mission to raise well needed funds to continue its many empowering initiatives and you; yoU and YOU my dear friends can truly play a part.

How is this for quality entertainment paired with a charitable deed?!!

So mark your calendars,  get those glamorous outfits out, come prepared to experience something different (if this is your first tea party) and know that the greater reward is helping women who are truly in need.
