Last night, on behalf of my clothing brand LJChaplin – The Label along with my giving girlfriends, we supported local charity Dress for Success Perth in sorting, merchandising and pricing donated garments ahead of their sales event this weekend.
Not only did we donate our time, we also made a modest financial contribution to place a female who has fallen on hard times to complete their programme and assist in returning to the workforce.
Rae and the volunteer team on the night were wonderful to work with, made it fun and relaxing whilst providing an opportunity for us to assistance them. I am proud of my friends for being so generous with their time and I am proud of myself for leveraging my brand to do good will for others.
Dress for Success Perth is an affiliate of the global charity that provides work-appropriate attire, mentoring support and career development tools to help empower women in Western Australia to move forward and achieve self sufficiency through gainful employment. They provide support to women in Western Australia who need our support, not just to look the part for a job interview but to gain the confidence that comes from having the necessary career skills.
The team are needing new clothing racks if you are able to help out or you would like to volunteer, please feel welcome to email me via the Contact Us page.
Love LJ xx
