Wow! What a week! fairechild has been chosen by FedEx as their grand prize winner for their first ever FedEx Canada Small Business Grant Contest. Needless to say, there has been ecstatic jumping, lots of smiles and grateful hearts in our office the past few days.
At the end of May we were named as one of the top 75 finalists from over 2,100 entries. We were then asked to submit a video speaking to the passion that drives our business. It was this video that won us the grand prize of $25,000 plus $15,000 in marketing and consulting services. We are excited to use this award to grow fairechild. You can watch our winning video below. It's pretty DIY but it is full of heart!
We want to thank FedEx for their support and for providing us with the funds and resources that will help fairechild to continue to thrive. You can learn more about our mission to close the loop on fashion by watching our TEDx talk.
One last thing, we are in great company! You can check out the other award winners over at the contest website. We are inspired by what small business is accomplishing all across the country.
