Massachusetts, USA – Chaldeans are well known as compassionate fighters against injustice. Many help feed refugees, run for cancer, care for the sick, and offer aid to the needy. “It is because of our faith,” says Ann Kajy. “As Christians we are taught to use our talents to help lift the burden of others.”
Talented and famous Boston designer Denise Hajjar is helping to lift the burden of those suffering from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. The disease is a neurodegenerative disease that attacks both upper and lower motor neurons and weakens the brain and spinal cord.
Hajjar showed her spring and summer line at a fashion show benefiting the Massachusetts chapter of the ALS Association. Before the event kicked off, Hajjar said she planned to show 56 different looks in lots of cheerful colors: oranges, yellows, blues, and pinks. "The dress is back in a big, big way," she promised. "Women are embracing it again." And in recognition of the current economic, uh, constraints many shoppers are under, she kept her frocks in the $200 range and created bags for less than $100. "We really worked hard at that," she said.
Hajjar is well known for her elegant styles and custom look. “She knows exactly how to fit the right fashion to the right person,” says Kajy. “I have long been a fan of her styles and have a wardrobe filled of her inspired designs.”
More Chaldean stay-at-home moms are using their creativity, experience and education into starting businesses on the side. No matter if your goals are as simple as adding to the family’s income or as big as building a million dollar company, starting part-time from home is a great way to test the business waters.
But between helping the kids with complex homework assignments, shuttling them to countless activities and volunteering at their school--all while managing the household and trying to carve out a little time for yourself--where do they find the time to start a business?
