C.H.I.C. Suit Campaign
When I learned that Dress for Success Austin had a very limited supply of plus size suiting I felt inspired to provide a solution and the idea of the C.H.I.C. (Clothe Her in Confidence) campaign was sparked. Between 35% and 45% of the women who go to Dress for Success Austin for support, are size 16 and above and only a small minority of suits donated to them are in these much needed sizes. These women are vulnerable and in need of professional suiting that will give them the confidence and the image they need to interview for positions that could change their lives. Through the C.H.I.C. campaign, my goal is to provide 300 plus size suits to Dress for Success Austin in order to meet their plus size suiting need for 1 year. In doing so, my deepest hope is to help them fulfill their vision...
"a world where women do not live in poverty, are treated with dignity and respect and are strengthening their families and shaping their communities."
We will be raising funds from December 5th - January 5th 2016. We will provide their most needed sizes, 16-28. We will donate the suits to the Austin location, March 30th. You can read more about the story, support and share here:
