Today PHKI highlights the ladies of FoCasions Seanece and Jamira! I purchased a beautiful necklace from them a few months ago and loved the price as well as the customer service! To read more about FoCasions, read on!
PHKI: Assalaamu Alaikum ladies, can you tell my readers what FoCasions is about?
FoCasions: Walaikum Salaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, FoCasions was started a little over one year ago by Seanece mashaAllah. It started out as just a hobby, making gift baskets which included every piece of accessory for an outfit as well as spa products. Alhamdulilah the baskets were a hit and over time I started selling the items separate, thus FoCasions was born.

A brief description of Baitul Salaam:
“Since November 1, 1999 the shelter program has housed 910 women and children from various parts of the US and five foreign countries (Pakistan, India, Egypt, Ghana and Tanzania). Through our outreach program we have assisted thousands with gas money and bus fare (for job search), referrals for medical assistance, housing, legal and many other services. The Shelter Program needs $350,000 per year to meet the present need of emergency housing in our community. This level of funding will enable us to provide a 24/7 hotline, pay salaries for a staff of four, and increase our intervention services in general. Your assistance is needed to reach this goal. You can help as an individual or group.” Via baitulsalaam.org
