BUSHWICK GIVES: to women
The first Bushwick Gives: To Women is the second part of the Shit Nobody Told Me project. When SNTM was published it was promised that proceeds would be used to support a woman starting/developing her own business or pursuing her education. The recipient of the first $500 grant submitted her an overview of her business plan and was randomly selected for the distribution.
