INSPIRADOR INVITES PATRONS TO “SHOP TO SAVE THE WORLD”

(CHANDLER, AZ--NOVEMBER 30, 2007) On Wednesday, December 5, Inspirador patrons will not only discover unique jewelry, art and home décor items made globally, but they can “shop to save the world” that same evening, in time for the Holidays.

At the next Downtown Chandler 1st Wednesday Art Walk from 5-9 p.m., Inspirador, the new wedding and special events venue in Historic Downtown Chandler, will be kicking off its exclusive partnership with Nest a non-profit organization dedicated to changing the lives of women in developing countries through micro-loans. The Nest line of products will be featured in the new boutique for brides at Inspirador called Inspiration Lounge.

Inspirador will be hosting Rebecca Kousky, founder and president of Nest, who will be flying in from St. Louis, MO for the event. Ms. Kousky and Inspirador will feature Nest products, as well as those of local and national artists and designers at the Trunk Show. Up to 25% of all proceeds that evening will be donated to Nest.

“Our mission at Nest is to help women artisans in developing countries through mircolending. We do it by partnering with domestic designers to help us fundraise, creating a community of artists helping artists the world over. Pair that with letting discerning patrons purchase products that help support women and families around the globe and we hope to have created a powerful program” said Kousky.

“We are constantly seeking creative ways to make life’s special moments even more meaningful,” said Dilia Wood, owner/developer of Inspirador. “When we see a quality concept like Nest that resonates with this simple premise we know our patrons are celebrating with purpose.”
