Dear Customers, Welcome To The Site Your Support Helped Build
You are my family, and today I welcome you to my first home, the Rose Out Of The Mud website, rotmofficial.com on Shopify.com. The launch of this website is a real dream come true for me. When I got it to a point that I could finally share it with you, I felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment.
You see, life hasn't been easy for me. In fact, I've been fighting for survival since I was the age of two. That is when my father was incarcerated for life. Things never got better after that. While I constantly made efforts to remain positive and do the right thing, life has been an unstable and emotional roller coaster, full of misfortune, tragedy, and poor decisions. If you knew all the details of my life, you'd think I was lucky to just be alive, not launching a site to promote my clothing line. Yet, here I am. Wow!
Words can't express how immensely grateful I am to each and every one of you who has supported me in so many ways. I am especially grateful to those of you who opened your door to me when I knocked to try and sell you a t-shirt. Even though you had more important things to do, your kindness compelled you to open and listen to this young lesbian from Compton share her story. You may not have known this at the time, but every time one of you opened your door, you saved my life. You gave me faith.
I will never be able to repay you for what you have done for me. What I can do is show you that your support lead to something greater than anything you could have ever imagined. I hope you sign up for my newsletter and allow me to keep in touch. I look forward to sharing stories of success with you. More importantly, I look forward to sharing stories about how I am giving back.
These present tough times have done nothing more than to motivate me to work even harder, and to do everything I possibly can to create opportunity for the many people who are losing it right now. To create opportunity we will have to re-teach our families, friends, and neighbors how to dream again. We must save those dreams! If you stick with me, we can save them together. Each other is all we have.
Once again, thank you for your support. I couldn't have done it without you.
