Fashiona meets Tamara Louis-Jeune of Scattering Resources

Last week fashion with a purpose seeking Fashiona was invited to Twelve Lobby and Bistro for the  40 girls and some shoes annual shoe drive.  She was primarily there to interview Sylvia Webb the founder and of course to donate some heels of her own.

While Fashiona was there she was thrilled to meet the lovely Tamara Louis-Jeune founder of Scattering Resources who was there in support of 40 girls and to donate some shoes.  Tamara, who is both Dominican and Haitian,  started the organization in part due to her own Grandmother's frustration with trying to send packages overseas to Haiti.  The high cost of shipping  and shortage of  basic necessities in Haiti prompted her to begin Scattering Resources in 2009.

Tamara Louis-Jeune

The name Scattering Resources is taken from Proverbs 11:24 - “There are those who generously scatter abroad, and yet increase more; there are those who withhold more than is fitting…but it results only in want.” Louis-Jeune believes that by scattering resources, a little can go a long way.
