The only online publication for women in Greater Cincinnati
Philanthropic Events

Looking for an easy but unique fundraiser for a charity you love? Want to update your wardrobe and help local causes while you're at it? See how you can through one locally-based online retailer.

I love shopping on my friend Emily’s site,, because there’s a TON of cute jewelry, bags/scarves and baby stuff (at SUPER affordable prices). But I also love doing business with her because she supports lots of local charities.

The first kind of charity she supports is YOURS. Click here to see a video I did last year that documents how to host an online shopping party with your friends and family to fundraise for a cause of your choice. For the sale I did last year, I raised funds for a family who needed money for fertility treatment… so your cause doesn’t necessarily need to be an official 501c3 charity. 

You can also host online shopping events that are not related to a charity (like this one I’m doing on Oct. 23) where you earn credits to use on her site instead. But in case you’d like to host a Miss Em’s fundraiser, here are some highlights:

  • 15% of total sales from a Miss Em’s party get donated back as a check for your organization
  • Can be done online as a virtual/Facebook party (can you include the video you did last year as a party) OR…
  • It can be an in-home party where your friends and family come to you
  • All pieces of jewelry are $5-$25 or less so everyone can feel comfortable purchasing something without breaking the bank

Miss Em’s also hosts events throughout the year in Columbus and Cincinnati where a portion of proceeds benefit a local cause. Here are groups they’ve done fundraisers for previously: Boy Scouts, cheerleading teams, volleyball teams, southern Ohio survivors, Pelotonia, Cincinnati Children’s, and many more.  

Click here to check out the “Upcoming Event” section of her site so you can see if there’s an event coming up (where she’s either hosting or being a vendor at) that you’d like to attend. It’s always neat to see and try on the items in person instead of buying online! You can also “like” Miss Em’s on Facebook so you get invited to events in the future. Here are a few pictures of previous Miss Em’s events and fundraisers so you can see how fun they are! Hope to see you at one soon!



“Red Pink and Blue” (RPB), produced by Cincy Chic and Locals on Living, is a women’s health awareness event with a fashionable twist. The “Red” for heart health, “Pink” for breast health, and “Blue” for diabetes health. The three organizations benefiting from this event are the American Heart Association, Pink Ribbon Girls and the American Diabetes Association.

RPB will take place on Friday, June 25 on the Kentucky landing of the Purple People Bridge. Come out and enjoy an evening on the bridge with food, drinks, shopping and a fashion show.

There will be plenty of standing room along the runway. There will also be chairs in the café area of our event and park benches along the runway on the bridge, if you would like to sit while watching the show.
