Giving no matter what the season will never go out of style. Donating and sharing with others is very contagious. It is a good way of spreading great vibes and joy to all involved and Amanda Munz, Founder, and CEO from the Fashion Foundation knows this all too well.
The Fashion Foundation is a nonprofit organization which combines fashion and charitable giving. Our mission is to provide school supplies to students in need. The goal is to work with some of the fashion industries leading designers and retailers to fill our shop with products. The samples that were once lying around their office are now being used at The Fashion Foundation to fund our students and provide them with learning tools.
For the foundation focuses on the following.
Designers, retailers, and individuals donate their samples to The Fashion Foundation.
With the donated items, the foundation, sell them at a fraction of the retail cost on our website and in our showroom.
With the funds raised from sales, donations, and fundraisers, the foundation buys schools the supplies their students need and can not afford.
The responses and results of the sales have made a lasting impact on the students. According to the foundation CEO, the schools we work with don't have the funds to provide their students with school supplies all year round. We provide our partner schools with clean uniforms, new backpacks, notebooks, pencils, art supplies, gym equipment and all other tools their students need to succeed.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
According to Munz, "We never hand a school a check. We work directly with the school's staff to provide their students with the exact supplies they need, shipping them new supplies as they need them!" That fact alone really does make them different.
