Your Biz Your Town – August
Where has the time gone?
The summer has flown by, and it’s already time for August’s Your Biz Your Town segment. For those of you who don’t know, 834 Design & Marketing co-hosts a radio segment called, “Your Biz Your Town,” on the fourth Friday of every month with Shelley Irwin on the WGVU Morning Radio Show. The purpose of Your Biz Your Town is to highlight individuals and businesses within West Michigan that are doing great things for the local community.
Your Biz Your Town was back in action on Friday, August 25 with two amazing interviewees: Purley and Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids! To listen to the full segment, click here. The full segment can also be seen below, via Facebook Live.
Purely is an art destination. Purely is an open, two-sided digital marketplace that gives kids and teens a platform to share their art with the world–and earn a little money in the process. Purely is currently in the start-up phase, and is led by a mother-daughter duo, Jill Hulswit and Katherine Mullen. Children can let their creativity flow, and adults can check out the work and appreciate the refreshing honesty, creativity, and uniqueness that only kids can offer. For every product purchased, Purely artists share the revenue.

Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids
I love Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids’ mission. I can’t say enough good things about this organization.
Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids provides free emotional healthcare to children, adults, families, and friends on any kind of cancer journey or those grieving the death of someone in their life due to any cause. The organization will be hosting their third-annual West Side Walk for Gilda’s on Saturday, September 23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The West Side Walk is free and open to the community, but no pets, please. The walk is 1.5 miles, and participants are encouraged to walk at their own pace. Registration begins at 11 a.m., followed by the walk beginning at noon, and a block party beginning at 1 p.m. The festivities will be held at 1806 Bridge Street in Grand Rapids. All donations will go towards the organization’s year-long programming.
