La soufriere disaster relief
“While natural disasters capture headlines and national attention short-term, the work of recovery and rebuilding is long-term.” -S.M Burwell
Unfortunately, The La Soufriere volcano located on the mainland of the Caribbean island St. Vincent and the Grenadines, on Friday 9th April 2021 has begun to explosively erupt. Since then, the country has been covered in thick layers of dangerous volcanic ash; pyroclastic flows are streaming down the mountain; over 20,000 people have been evacuated and volcanologists predict an intensification of eruptions.
This is the hub of all Kimmystic.Clo production and our home country, and currently the outlook is gloomy. It’s a heartbreaking experience but the team is safe for the time being. Sadly many people had to be displaced from their homes and moved to shelters, others are stuck at home and quickly running out of food and water. We at Kimmystic.Clo would like to do our part in helping these families, starting with an initial goal of USD $2500, depending on how well we do the goal can increase.
Below is a button that you can click to make donations to assist with our efforts to help the people of the island of St. Vincent to recover and hopefully rebuild. You can donate as low as XCD$1.00, every penny counts. The Kimmystic.Clo team hopes to focus on people who have not entered shelters but are still in their own homes and are running out of food and water and have additionally, opened their homes to displaced family members. If you are someone or you know someone that is running out food and water and need assistance you can fill out the form found here. For more information about the situation you can check the PAHO and NEMO website. Thank you for reading and thank you for your donations.
We have now added an additional button for donations. Since some persons have reported technical difficulties donating using the current method, we have added an additional button with an alternate method. We would like this to be as non-profit as possible, but the alternate method charges a 3% fee + US$0.30. As a result please ONLY use the “Alternate donate method” IF the donate button method DOES NOT WORK for you.

It hasn’t been easy, but we’ve worked our way into the premier spot for the fashion-conscious, and we’re dedicated to staying there. The styles and selection have changed at lot over the years, but our dedication to serving the customer has remained the same!
What began as a humble little dress shop in a tiny corner store in downtown has turned into our beautiful new location in the mall. We haven’t forgotten our humble origins, though, and we haven’t forgotten the customers who supported us and helped us grow into what we are today.
