In the wake of Typhoon Yolanda's devastating aftermath, we feel each of us―one way or another―has a role to play in helping our affected brothers and sisters overcome such life-altering adversity. Here's just one out of a hundred ways you can help. Read on!
The Philippine Red Cross has been helping out our brothers and sisters who have become victims of various calamities. A recurring dilemma they've been having to deal with is that not all clothing donations are wearable. This year alone, they have received two tons of clothing donations and although they gladly accept and appreciate the overwhelming amount, not all are necessarily appropriate to be given to the victims such as designer gowns, leather jackets, coats, and crop tops. Besides, the immediate supplies that these affected people need are food, water, and medicine kits.
And because it would be a shame to put these items into waste, they’ve come up with a brilliant idea of hosting the first-ever Red Cross used-clothes fundraiser: the Red Cross Aid Couture.
With the support of Ariel and Downy, all these chic essentials have been restored to look and smell as good as new. Not to mention the addition of fashion experts Happy Andrada, Vicky Herrera, Paulo Castro, and Jujiin Samonte who have sorted and styled these items that will be ready for selling on November 16 to 17, 2013 at Alabang Town Center, from 10am to 10pm. Every garment includes a price tag that shows the equivalent life essential you’ll be providing―you're assured of a tasteful array of items and you’d know exactly where your money would go!
Save the date and spread the word. Make this THE shopping weekend like you'll never forget. See you there!
