Denver, CO, October 01, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Liberti is a lifestyle brand that uses fashion as a platform to empower refugees living in America. "Our Liberti Kickstarter campaign for resettled refugees was cancelled with just 48 hours to go, but we're not giving up on it,” said Co-Founder Pamela Shelpuk. Liberti has earned just $23,705 of the $68,000 goal, and had less than 48 hours remaining on its Kickstarter campaign. “After 8 months of hard work we have decided to pull the KickStarter project altogether. This has been a heartbreaking process for us and the women who were so excited to start working full-time. Our decision to face reality and pull our project came out of an amazing session during #DENStartUpWeek last night with @WomenWhoStartUp. The inspiring Lizelle van Vuuren founder of WomenWhoStartUp has created a community that helps celebrate, connect and empower entrepreneurial women. We came away with hope as these women shared their experiences and inspired us by their courage to never give up. Today is a bittersweet day for us as all pledges are immediately voided from our KickStarter Campaign but we are so fortunate to have a great community here in Colorado to help pick us up, dust ourselves off and start all over again," said Shelpuk.
Liberti is now accepting donations for Liberti rewards on its website to help in its endeavor to empower resettled refugees in Colorado. Please help Liberti keep the faith and forward this email to friends and family. Go directly to give and shop at www.libertiusa.com/donate
