IN STORE INITIATIVE
We have made sure from Day 1 that our belief of giving back has been woven into every part of shopping at The Nowhere Nation. Since March 2018 when we opened our boutique, we have donated $1 from every item purchased in-store to Dress For Success Sydney, which as we stated above supports women to get back into the workforce and become financially independent.
What does Dress for Success do?
Dress for Success Sydney is "a registered charity that improves the employability of cis and trans women and non-binary people comfortable in women’s spaces who are in need in NSW. This is achieved by providing, free of charge, professional clothing, a network of support and career development tools to help women achieve self-sufficiency."
"At the centre of this brand are the people. People who hail from different all parts of the globe. From the designers to the artisans to the PR reps and our clients themselves, knowing that we are all somehow connected by The Nowhere Nation is a pretty amazing thought. When we think of this a metaphor for the greater world around us, it demonstrates how we as human beings are all connected.
It is my ultimate goal to find a way to shift the experience of shopping into an act of kindness. When we are in such a great position to make an impact on other's lives, we have to take advantage of it."
