Plastic Seconds at The Clothes Club Fundraising Event + Win Tickets!
I am really excited to be taking part in a fundraising event, organised by The Clothes Club, on Thursday 21st of May at the Dalston Roof Park. It is a wonderful opportunity to come along and swap neglected pieces from your wardrobe with some new ones, while having drinks on a roof garden and listening to DJs! There are also great raffle prizes to be won, including a limited edition Plastic Seconds necklace! By attending you will be helping The Clothes Club raise money for Art Against Knives and ChildHope. Art Against Knives support, through their creative workshops and projects, young individuals with a past in crime who need experience and opportunity to access education employment and training https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYuRZyI0uZ8. ChildHope, via TRAID, provide birth certificates for children of garment workers. In Bangladesh, many garment workers are extremely poor women who are single mothers. They have usually migrated from rural areas looking for work and opportunities for themselves and their children. With high demand for cheap labour in the garment industry, many of these women work sewing clothes in factories. Birth certificates are crucial so their children can get access to education and medical care http://www.traid.org.uk/were-supporting-the-children-of-garment-workers/ I will be there selling Plastic Seconds funky jewellery and will be donating all my takings to the above charities. You can buy your tickets and read more details about how the evening will unfold here. I have a pair of tickets to give away, so head over to @plasticseconds on Instagram for your chance to win them! I will be selecting a winner at random on Saturday 16th of May :-)
