We want our business to contribute to a better world
Many members of our team came here as migrants, so it is important to all of us that we give back to the local community that has given us so much.
We’re proud to get behind these causes and organisations – and even prouder to say that our clients always show so much support for these initiatives too.
We love working with B1G1, because they make sure 100% of our contributions go directly to these important projects.
For every client alterations order, and for every custom tailored item ordered, we will plant a tree to increase forest cover. This contribution is our way of offsetting the fashion industry’s impact on the environment.
This project aims to collaborate with remote tribal communities to enable them to create, own and manage their own productive forest resources. Your contributions will help acres of common and privately-owned land to be covered with plantations with fruit, fodder and fuel bearing species under the ownership of respective communities. The project is focused on sustaining the local natural resources by improving livelihoods through effective management of natural resources in the respective hamlets. These plantations along with land development works will help in Soil and Water conservation in the region.
Women’s Legal Service Queensland (WLSQ) is our primary charity partner. They provide legal support for women in the areas of family law, child support, child protection, domestic violence and sexual assault.
Unfortunately they are unable to answer every call for help that comes through their hotline, and in some cases the women calling only have one chance to call. That’s why we support WLSQ, because the funds help with the immediate practical needs of women in domestic violence situations… and every dollar is desperately needed.
We’ve raised funds through donations, by volunteering at their events and by participating in Dancing CEOs. Clare’s performance in front of 1000 people helped raise almost $23,000 (check out her dance moves here).
We’re currently donating funds from our face masks to WLSQ. Sadly domestic violence levels have increased due to the effects of COVID-19 (including financial stress and isolation). Your support counts more than ever – see our face masks here.
Suited to Success helps disadvantaged men and women overcome barriers to employment. Their programs have helped thousands of people to find lasting employment through mentoring, a Career Hub and styling sessions. The latter is where we come in.
Each year we run a clothing drive in our studio, allowing our clients and the community to donate clothes. These garments are given directly to job candidates who need professional clothes, or used to raise funds at the pre-loved fashion store run by Suited to Success. For every garment donated during the drive, we offer a voucher for $5 off alterations.
