The Shepherd Centre, Colette partner for the greater good
Fashion retailer sells pompoms for charity.
Children’s charity The Shepherd Centre will be participating in an upcoming fundraising initiative ‘Make Fashion Count’ in partnership with fashion brand Colette by Colette Hayman.
The concept brings fashion and charity together with Colette by Colette Hayman launching four pompom key rings that each represent an Australian charity.
“The Shepherd Centre is very excited to be partnering with Colette by Colette Hayman for the ‘Make Fashion Count’ initiative. We rely heavily on public donations to be able to continue providing these essential early intervention services to Australian children with hearing loss and their families,” said the children’s charity.
“We are helping more children with hearing loss than ever before learn to listen and speak. However, we know that for every family we do help, there is another who is currently not receiving support and we desperately need to help them. By bringing fashion and charity together, there is a unique opportunity for our community to help us ensure that every deaf child is able to achieve their potential.”
Priced at $4.99 each, 100 per cent of the profits of each pompom purchase will be donated to the corresponding charity organisation.
Charities involved include The Shepherd Centre (blue pompom), Act for Kids (pink pompom), Women’s Community Shelters (grey pompom) and Dress for Success (black pompom).
The Shepherd Centre teaches deaf and hearing impaired children to listen and speak so they can participate fully in the world and reach their potential. The not-for-profit organisation specialises in early intervention therapy for children with hearing loss across NSW, ACT and Tasmania.
