Cause We Care Foundation is proud to announce its new charitable campaign: Clean Out Your Closet for a Cause. Throughout September, Cause We Care is working with retail and media partners to promote clothing consignment to support single mothers and their children in need.
September’s Clean Out Your Closet for a Cause month encourages Vancouverites to host a consignment party or bring their gently used women’s clothing, shoes and accessories to any Turnabout location in the city (West Broadway, 4th Avenue, South Granville or Main Street). Proceeds from the items donated to the Cause We Care Foundation account will go directly to the charity when they are sold.
“We are so excited to launch Clean Out Your Closet for a Cause” says Andrea Hill, Founder of Cause We Care Foundation. “This initiative gives us all the opportunity to do a necessary cleanout of our wardrobes, whilst encouraging participation in a much greater and more important cause. There is still so much we can do for single mothers and their families in need and this campaign is a wonderful way to get the whole Vancouver community involved.”
Individuals interested in hosting a consignment party can register through the Cause We Care website (www.causewecare.org). Proceeds from the sale of items will go towards community development initiatives, including affordable housing, employment training and afterschool care programs for women-led families in need.
Consignment stories and photos can be shared using the hashtag #singlemotherstrong and #ConsignmentForACause.
