It is important and in fact uplifting to step forward where possible and try to make a difference in the lives of those who can use a little boost,” said Michael Kirshbaum. “The world wants to be a better place and we all need to be contributors.
Stamford, Connecticut (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
Michael and Regina Kirshbaum, owners of the popular boutique Agabhumi: The Best of Bali, announced a generous donation this month to The Ballet School of Stamford. This latest donation is yet another symbol of their ongoing support for local community organizations, and follows years of charitable donations by the husband and wife duo supporting worthy causes around the world.
The owners of Agabhumi presented the check to the school’s Executive Director, Marti Etter, in a recent private meeting. “I think knowing that there are wonderful business owners like Michael and Regina who are consistent in their support for their community and do so much to reach out and connect with a program like ours not only financially, but also because they believe in what we’re doing and they share our passion really means a lot,” says Etter.
The Ballet School of Stamford is a not for profit ballet school that teaches professional dance for both children and adults from Fairfield and Westchester counties. “The immediate response of gratitude from a woman for whom we have the utmost respect, as well as the chance to connect with some very bright and talented kids, fills you up spiritually,” said Regina Kirshbaum. “That’s what it’s all about; putting something good out there in the world knowing you’re making a real difference. Perhaps someday we will meet one of these students as a young woman who has achieved her goals and she'll be thankful for us having played a part in her development and pass that on to someone else. Plus, it is always good to make Marti’s day like that!”
The Agabhumi owners are not beginners when it comes to philanthropy. The couple often donates to charities and programs, and they have become heavily involved with numerous do-good projects that are near and dear to their hearts. “It is important and in fact uplifting to step forward where possible and try to make a difference in the lives of those who can use a little boost,” said Michael Kirshbaum. “The world wants to be a better place and we all need to be contributors.”
Since the opening of their flagship store in 2002 in Stamford, Michael and Regina have set up three other locations in Santa Monica, Barbados, and most recently New Haven. On their twice-a-year trips to Bali, the couple meets with over 40 artisans to bring back the latest fashions and unique designs. From earrings to scarves to sandals, the stores are covered from wall to wall with these one of a kind items. Stop in one of the stores or visit them online at http://www.Agabhumi.com.
