NISWA (www.niswa.org) was established in 1990 as a nonprofit organization to address the welfare needs of the Muslim community. NISWA’s mission is to preserve and strengthen Muslim families, protect the rights of Muslim children, prevent domestic violence, and increase the awareness of family laws and environmental pressures that impinge on the family. The organization runs a shelter for abused women and their children, provides foster care services for children, and also counseling, advocacy and educational services to the community in the greater Los Angeles Area.
Each year NISWA hosts a “Women’s Appreciation Day” , a very popular, ladies-only event featuring complimentary beauty treatments, fashion shows, a bazaar and a host of other fun activities put together entirely by volunteers. This event is open to the public and donations are tax deductible. Artizara has been privileged to support NISWA since 2003, and donates both employee time and a portion of its sales to NISWA during the “Women’s Appreciation Day”.
This year the dates of the “Women’s Appreciation Day” are:
Northridge, CA Sunday, April 22, 2007
El Cajon, CA Sunday, April 29, 2007
At the El Cajon fundraiser Artizara will preview its Spring/Summer 2007 line with a colorful fashion show featuring over 3 dozen new styles. For more information or to attend these or future events call 1.866.ARTIZARA (858.449.4810) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
