Ready, Set, Donate! Fashion Project Partners Up With Joie to Sponsor Girls’ EducationFeb 20, 2014 @ 9:25 am
Before landing on InStyle’s coveted 17 Modern Innovators list, Christine Rizk (left) and Anna Palmer (right) of the Fashion Project had been busy securing over 130 charity partners. “Our mission is to use fashion as a force for good,” says Rizk. “Every time you buy a pair of Jimmy Choos on Fashion Project, you’re giving money to an organization that will go out and do something great in the world.”
Starting today, the leading online clothing donation and resale destination launches its new partnership with Joie to raise funds for She’s the First, a non-profit that sponsors girls’ education in the developing world. For two weeks, the clothing company will collect customers’ gently used luxury clothing, shoes, and accessories to be sold on FashionProject.com. The best part? 55% of the proceeds are donated to She’s the First. Plus, each donor receives a 20% off coupon for Joie or Joie.com. Changing the world, while getting your shopping fix? Sign us up.
“One of the really fun things about Fashion Project is getting to learn about all of these non-profits,” says Palmer, who started Something Borrowed, a non-profit that recycles wedding dresses, prior to founding the Fashion Project. “I was blown away by She’s the First’s mission. We’re big fans.”
