Buy To Save
Singapore Committee for UN Women would like to extend an invitation to the general public to attend the eighth annual Buy To Save event. Each year, Fashionistas and Fashion-misters with a heart attend the annual charity fashion sale where pre-loved designer handbags, apparel and accessories are sold to fund initiatives that help women and young girls in Singapore who are at-risk from violence, abuse and exploitation.
Buy to Save gathers the best of pre-loved labels for a three-day only event. These designer clothes, shoes, and handbags have been generously donated through Club21 Cares initiative, Style It Forward and corporate partners. Pieces have also been styled and upcycled by students from the Textile and Fashion Industry Training Centre (TaF.tc). All upcycled and donated apparel will form the core of Buy to Save, Singapore Committee for UN Women's annual fundraiser and leading recycled fashion sale in Singapore. Details for this year’s event are as follows:
Date: Friday 7th, Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th November 2014
Time: 10:00am to 8:00pm
Venue: Forum The Shopping Mall, Basement 1 Atrium, 583 Orchard Road
Members-only preview sale: 7th & 8th November from 9am – 10am
A portion of the funds raised will also support the immediate needs and protection of women in the Karenni refugee camps along the Thailand-Myanmar border where domestic violence is rife. The project aims to ensure that women and girls affected by violence receive comprehensive assistance from community-based service partners, allowing survivors of violence to heal quickly and safely.
Singapore Committee for UN Women members are invited to bring their membership card or apply for membership before the event to join in on the special Members Only Preview Sale (7th & 8th November from 9am – 10am) to get first dibs on all the designers deals. Besides the great deals already present at Buy to Save, Singapore Committee for UN Women will be offering a generous discount to shoppers who opt into Monthly Giving at the event.
Venue sponsor, Forum The Shopping Mall, have generously donated their basement floor to host the sale. Forum The Shopping Mall spans over 110,000 sq ft with five retail levels and is home to over 70 speciality stores catering to the needs of sophisticated shoppers and families with young children.
Long-standing Buy to Save partner, MasterCard, is joining us again this year so you can do even more with your purchase! Use your MasterCard to pay for your items at Buy to Save, and MasterCard will donate S$5 in support of Singapore Committee for UN Women’s work. Based on the concept of transactional philanthropy, it is at the heart of this drive by MasterCard to encourage responsible spending, while simultaneously making a difference in someone else's life.
Funds raised from this event will be directed to the many projects Singapore Committee for UN Women support in Singapore and Asia that are focused on ending violence against women. In particular, proceeds will support Singapore Committee for UN Women’s work locally in raising awareness about gender-based violence through their Help Anna campaign.
