The Wear the Change Fundraiser, organised by The Social Outfit in Newtown, raised funds for their non-profit community programs which support refugee and migrant women with training, education and employment pathways in the fashion industry.
"I draw the attention of this parliament to amazing work of fundraisers who participated in the Wear the Change Fundraiser organized by The Social Outfit in Newtown. The event took place during Refugee Week to raise funds for The Social Outfit's non-profit community programs which support refugee and migrant women with training, education and employment pathways in the fashion industry. I was pleased to be able to take part in the Wear the Change challenge by wearing an ethical fashion piece styled differently every day for a week. Over $50,000 was raised from the event and I'd like to congratulate and acknowledge the incredible people who took on the challenge to raise funds. In particular, I'd like to congratulate to top fundraisers including Annabel Crabb, David Hardie, Jo Taylor, Jess Miller, Kate Clugston, Eloise Rapp, Rebecca Huntley, Ranya Alkadamani and Camilla Schippa. The top fundraising teams include the Social Outfit, Good Day Girl, the Social Impact Hub and Headspace Miranda. A special congratulations to The Social Outfit team member Kate Clugston for all her work on this stylish initiative."
