Ollie Quinn and Wino Collective have teamed up to hold a donation drive to support Dress for Success Ottawa!
Wino Collective is a new online clothing brand selling vintage and ethically-sourced clothing - we want to make shopping for new and preloved beauties as easy as possible because we are passionate about curbing the ever-so-constant mass production of junky clothing items and focusing on unmined gems.
What are we fundraising for?
We have joined forces because we firmly believe that everyone deserves that feeling we all get when putting on something comfortable and flattering that gives us the confidence to take on the day. We feel it is important to support an organization that works to empower women and help them to achieve economic independence by providing professional attire, development tools, and a support network.
This is why we are so pleased to share with you our empowerment page - linked here - for our fundraiser to benefit Dress for Success, a locally based charity that provides women throughout the Ottawa Region with the tools and resources they need to achieve economic independence. We have a fundraising goal of $2000 and need your help to reach it!
It takes $100 to run each woman's 90-minute personalized suiting - this means our goal will help 20 women get the professional clothing they need to help them overcome a challenging time in their lives and help them find economic independence. Donations also help Dress for Success provide women with the opportunity to take part in professional development programs and career training workshops.
If you are interested in getting to know us better and participating further we are also hosting a clothing drive and party on October 15 at Ollie Quinn in the Glebe (798 Bank St.) - we are accepting donations of gently used handbags that you can wear to the office! Ollie Quinn will contribute a pair of glasses for every handbag donated. There will be free refreshments and a fashion pop-up - those who provide a monetary donation or give clothes will receive a discount to use towards glasses and our other vendors, including Wino Collective, Marigold Vintage, Hailey Jane Jewellery, and more. Don’t miss it!
There are two ways you can help:
- You can use the page linked here to make a monetary donation from the comfort of your own home
- You are invited to attend our clothing drive and shopping event on October 15 2022 at Ollie Quinn in the Glebe from 4-9 PM. We will have free drinks, snacks, and a DJ!
With just $25, YOU can start a woman's journey at Dress for Success Ottawa and TOGETHER we can empower the future of our community!
*Any funds raised on this page will go directly into Dress for Success programs and services.*
