The Thread Loop raises funds to support marginalized women and children


News

August 2, 2010/23.53


New Zealand’s first online eco-fashion retailer, the Thread Loop, has partnered with GVN Foundation’s annual fund-raiser, Eat So They Can (ESTC), to raise funds to support marginalized women and children in Africa, Asia and South America. The Thread Loop will donate 10 per cent of its profits from every sale between now and October 17, 2010 directly to ESTC, with shoppers automatically entered into the draw to win one of four $50 shopping vouchers.
   Visitors who sign up to be an ESTC Host could also win a trip to Africa.
   Shoppers would now support not just eco-conscious and socially responsible labels, but they will make a ‘tangible’ difference to international communities.
   ESTC invites people from all over the world to host a dinner, invite their friends and family, gather donations and send those funds to GVN Foundation to support their partners. This year’s fund-raiser supports orphaned and vulnerable children, women’s empowerment, emergency relief, anti-trafficking.
   ‘We’re committed to supporting organizations and individuals with a genuine desire for influencing social and environmental change … We’re very excited to be involved in GVN Foundation’s fundraising event, and hope you’ll get behind us,’ says Jo Blundell, founder of the Thread Loop (above left).
   ‘Eat So They Can is proud to partner with the Thread Loop. We believe Eat So They Can and the Thread Loop share a desire to make this planet a better place, and to have fun (and look good) doing it,’ says Courtney Montague, GVN Foundation’s Executive Director and co-founder of Eat So They Can.
