A MESSAGE REGARDING COVID-19


As the outbreak continues to be a global concern, we wanted to reach out and let you know how it is affecting our team and our operations. 

In the last 24 hours the Indian government announced a lock-down whereby all non-essential businesses in India must remain closed for the next three weeks with strict police enforcement. Thus, the Shelter is forced to close until April 15th, at the earliest, along with our vendors, markets, and shipping partners.

Supporting our Employees
We are deeply concerned for the well-being of our employees in India. WORK+SHELTER does not have any savings, and thus cannot pay the women if we do not have income. If you can, please consider pre-ordering at a discount or donating to our nonprofit during this time.

Supporting our Clients + Current Orders
In general, we are hitting the pause button on all current orders for the next three weeks. Please assume a 2-3 week delay on deliveries. If we can work from home in India without risking the health of our employees we will.
 Let's work together to discuss impact, if any, as the situation evolves.

With love,
Theresa VanderMeer, Founder + CEO
WORK+SHELTER
START A CONVERSATION WITH US
Let's use our time wisely and get ahead of the fashion calendar. Maybe this quarantine has you brainstorming new product ideas or maybe you finally have time to start bringing your dream products to fruition. While we are physically out of office we are working hard from home. Now is the perfect time to review production timelines, new ideas, or just get to know one another better. Please scheduling a meeting or send an email to hello@workshelter.co.

HOW TO SHOW YOUR 🙌SUPPORT🙌

CONTRIBUTE TO HEALTH + FOOD SECURITY

Typically W+S supports women in need through fair, consistent wages. However, 75% of our business evaporated over the course of a week due to COVID-19. Our top priority is to now ensure that the women have access to food, water, and health-related supplies while they are in quarantine in cramped quarters. All funds will go directly to supporting our women in this time of need. If there is extra funding it will be used to pay the women to make face masks. 
DONATE ✨HERE✨
USE AMAZON SMILE

We realize that in order to avoid going out in public, many of you are buying your everyday products from Amazon. We encourage purchasing from small businesses, but if this is not possible and you do purchase from Amazon, please use the W+S Amazon link. For all purchases made using our URL, Amazon donates part of the proceeds to our initiatives. 
PRE-ORDER 

For those of you that are considering working with W+S on your next project, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on any orders placed now through April 15th.
