Let’s Begin Again
A new nonprofit resale shop started by a mother and daughter team. Kim Natori and her daughter Erika Natori have opened this shop as a way to help support survivors of brain injury by way of providing a place to gain volunteer and possibly employment opportunities as well as donating net proceeds to organizations that provide social and recreation opportunities and resources for survivors of brain injury. We are very grateful that they have selected We’re MOVING FORWARD! as one of the recipients.
The store opened on 5/31/19 and is located at 2322 E. Indian School Road. Make plans to visit them and bring in your gently used, clean clothing, accessories, household items etc. to help keep Let’s Begin Again stocked and carrying out their mission to help individuals with acquired and traumatic brain injuries.
Let’s Begin Again is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm. If you need to make arrangements for drop off of items outside of these hours, you may contact them at 602-237-5150 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Both Kuna and his wife Evie have been involved with us from the beginning back in 2009 before we became a nonprofit in 2014. Kuna is a very talented artist and now has his own “Sorta Fix’d” t-shirts that he designs and sells. Kuna is donating a portion of his proceeds to We’re MOVING FORWARD! You can view and purchase items through Kuna’s Etsy Store.
Lets start with an injury & strive toward being “FIX’D”…..
I had a motorcycle accident where I gained a Traumatic Brain Injury, my wife had a Brain Tumor removed and those blessings brought us together. Nobody is perfect, yet we sometimes strive for perfection. Why don’t we just accept our difficulties, compensate & Move Forward!
