The good thing: Helping when you can, where you can. Kickstart Tallulah!

Sometimes in life you meet people who are so adorably and unfailing sweet and kind it restores your faith in humanity. And that persons spends hours and hours patiently teaching you everything she knows. Then she goes off to rural Mississippi to fulfill her life's calling as a teacher to at-risk kids.

Then that same wonderful person's sister is trying to get her WONDERFUL fashion design company, "Talluah," off the ground in the beautiful city of New Orleans.

It's hard out there people, for an honest person to get a break in the fashion industry. But this is an honest person who has been working hard at this dream for many years. And you could help her. I can help her. We could help her. We can kickstart this dream!

No, she isn't a starving child in Africa. But she does want to put people to work. And more people working means more people helping others, right?

And it's not a "donate and get nothing except a good feeling." It's an opportunity for you to be a part of something good. Something nice. For nice people who want to do nice things and create nice clothes.

(And there is a little something in it for you, check out the link and see the details.)

I know, you are asking, is she legit? YES! The venerable Birmingham News and several other media outlets (like the wonderful Southern Femme!) have often covered TALLULAH designer Heather Williams.
