Supporter Spotlight: Denise Alden & Bombshell
Fashionista Denise Alden is the owner of Bombshell, a boutique in Minneapolis, Minnesota that caters to women of style and substance who wear sizes 14 to 24. For the past several years, Denise has organized a campaign around Mother’s Day to educate customers about obstetric fistula and encourage shoppers to donate to Fistula Foundation to help women suffering from fistula get the surgery they need. To date, her campaigns have raised $2,300!
Childbirth issues have always interested Denise, as she was a practicing midwife before starting a career in women’s fashion. “So many women are mothers, and they have no idea how dangerous and challenging childbearing is in other parts of the world,” she said. “I admire Fistula Foundation for bringing this preventable tragedy to light.”
A big thank you to Denise and Bombshell for their generous support! If you are in the Twin Cities area, be sure to stop by and say hi. You can also find them on Facebook or at www.bomb-shell-boutique.com.
