These past few days have been hard on everyone, some more than others. With the announcement of the one month long “enhanced community quarantine” in Metro Manila, people are advised to stay at home. However, not everyone is able to do so. Many need their daily income to be able to feed themselves and their families. Luckily, there are businesses who are trying their best to help their employees.
One example is designer Carl Jan Cruz. On Instagram he announced that he would be having a sale with pieces being 30 to 50 percent off. “This sales effort is channelled towards empowering the members of the CJC team, especially the mananahis, or as we like to call them, the Ladies,” shared Cruz.
With new items dropping every other day, this is your chance to help out the women who will be making the clothes. “The Ladies are not our priority, as we would wish to safeguard and direct the profits made from this sample sale towards our atelier who are all veterans at their work, and more importantly mothers who are dependent on the income to sustain their own families throughout these unpredictable, trying times.”
