Back in 2010, Round She Goes became the first preloved fashion market event to establish a partnership with a thrift charity. We’d been long-time super-fans of the Red Cross, and we pitched them the idea that at the end of our events, stallholders could donate any unsold clothing and accessories to their op-shops.
This simple idea has snowballed into having a massive impact. Over the last ten years, we’ve hosted over 100 events across Australia and our participants have generously given an enormous amount of quality donations (we estimate over 50 mini van loads!). Since then, similar events have followed our initiative, and our little idea has had a big impact, with a charitable partnership becoming a standard feature of preloved fashion-focused markets in Australia.
For 2019, we’ve decided to spread the love to other thrift-based charities and will be working with a wider variety of partners around the country. We thank our amazing stallholders that have supported the initiative and given charities like the Red Cross their best quality donations.
