6 years ago I put together a Plone for ChicagoFairTrade.org under Nancy Jones. It was a good learning experience, and it really helped legitimize the fledgling organization. I was thinking of doing another site like that, sort of as a Django portfolio piece. I'd like to propose taking this on as a Chipy mentoring program project.

Maybe "Project Mayhem?"

I may try to do this myself, but this is work for any of Santa's helpers in July, so why not make it a Stone Soup type production?

> Hi Jeremy,
> I'd like to introduce you to Fey Cruz who is the person I mentioned who is reviving the social enterprise, now named Pure Eden Spa Products.  They have just been up and running, reconnecting with old customers, but will really need a website by October to be able to take advantage of the holiday business.  I'm attaching a brief description of the project for you to pass around to find some volunteers.  Fey is available to talk over what they need on their site.  Any help would be appreciated!

> Website design needed for new social enterprise: Pure Eden Spa Products
> A ten year old social enterprise, The Enterprising Kitchen (made soaps and creams which provided work training for women) closed in December - crunched by debt.  Now a couple of those women are relaunching the project with the same mission and products, new name Pure Eden Spa Products.  They are a member of Chicago Fair Trade (we have a couple social enterprises as members)   They need a website and don't have the funds for this now but of course they won't move far with their business without one.  Essentially, they'd need an e-commerce site.  They are reviving their old customer base but now all orders are via phone and sending email to part time staff.  They have a domain...with a page that says their site is coming soon.  Questions? Contact fey at pureedenspaproducts.com
