Fashion Fundraisers

Fashion Fundraisers in South Africa

G
Our Fashion Fundraiser in South Africa is a pop-up shopping-event lasting for one or two days a few times every year. The fundraiser is mainly run by volunteers.

It’s fun but also a lot of work to prepare for an event. First, we collect, sort and prepare the clothes in Denmark to make it ready for shipment. Next, we put it on a ship heading to Cape Town. The transport from Copenhagen to Cape Town is carbon neutral through our investment in carbon offsetting projects.

In Cape Town the clothes goes through customs and is finally delivered at the local volunteers who start unpacking and sorting. The volunteers do the main part of the work, but we also employ women from informal areas for a short time period – as long as our budget allows.

Finally the hard work culminates in a festive event, where people show up to spend half a day and shop for a good cause.
