A Bermudian online gift shop looking to inspire motivation in others and promote positivity will have a kiosk rental on the lower level of Washington Mall during the festive period from December 12 to 19.

The R.I.S.E [Resiliently Inspired. Strengthened and Encouraged.] Motivational Gift Shop, which launched online in October, sells items decorated with inspiring messages, such as water bottles, tumblers, purses, wallets, throw pillows, T-shirts, dresses and mini notebooks.

A spokesperson for R.I.S.E. told Bernews: “New stock is coming now and in time for the holiday, so pre-orders are highly encouraged via www.risetribebda.com.

“Our gifts are sure to add another level to ‘giving love’ during the holidays as many could use a sweet and necessary reminder that they are loved, beautiful, worthy, abundant…enough.”

R.I.S.E. is also gearing up to co-host its second annual community event in Hamilton Parish on December 27.

Held at Francis Patton Primary School, the community gathering is a collaboration with The L.E.A.R.N.ing Space [Leveraging Every Available Resource Network] and will feature vendors representing small businesses in the parish entertainment and storytime for children.

Proceeds from the mini-market and any donations will go towards a mental/emotional health wellness programme initiative at a local primary school.

A spokesperson for R.I.S.E. told Bernews: “We would like stakeholders and residents of Hamilton Parish to casually come together in a festive space to meet/greet and have productive conversations on ways in which we can progress in improving our parish community on issues like unemployment, seniors, youth programmes, small business support, sponsorships, agriculture and various other topics.”

The theme of the event will be Kwanzaa – an annual African celebration of guiding life principles from December 26 to January 1. In honour of Ujima, the third of seven principles of Kwanzaa, the event encourages collective work and responsibility within the community.

The spokesperson added: “The hope is for other parishes to do the same in years to come to promote conversation and action within their immediate community. Moving the island forward, parish by parish.”
