Clothe the vulnerable & Restore dignity & hope

The clothes we choose to wear not only protect us from the elements but reflect and affect our confidence and self-esteem.

On the 6th of December 2023, we welcomed Thread Together to shed light on how 1 in 8 adults & 1 in 6 children in Australia do not have access to essential clothing.

Circumstances and disadvantage should not prevent people from accessing clothing to allow them to realise their full potential.

Key insights

 

Thread Together is Australia’s highest ethical response to fashion excess. A third of clothing that is manufactured or produced remains unsold. We exist to solve this problem to clothe people in need and keeping clothing out of landfill.

In 2012, Thread Together Founder, Andie Halas, one of the founding family members of the Seafolly business had a small production fault in some products. She offered it to a local charity instead of putting it into landfill. She stumbled across the problem and the solution at the same time.

Andie saw people rummaging through bags of second hand clothing and thought how can we give these families a sense of dignity and hope when looking for essential clothing? This is where Thread Together comes in.

We know that clothing has the power to change and transform lives. Yet, we often don’t think about it’s power whereas those that are less fortunate are acutely aware what it’s like to stand out and not fit in.

Thread Together is now shifting from being reactive to proactive in the way they respond emergencies. We want the clothing to be available at the time of an emergency but also acknowledge the need to build our networks and relationships to be able to respond to crises as quickly as we can.

Every $5 raised allows Thread Together to provide a new wardrobe
