TV presenter Lorraine Keane and Oxfam Ireland are bringing FASHION RELIEF back to Galway and Dublin in 2020 - and this year, Fashion Relief is bigger and better than ever!
You can bag a bargain from your favourite brand, boutique, designer or celeb and the best bit is you’ll be raising vital funds for communities impacted by war and climate change.
why support Fashion relief
Fashion Relief has shone a light on the suffering of millions of children, women and men across the world who face hunger and starvation due to a catastrophic combination of conflict, disasters and extreme weather. Funds raised will be used to support Oxfam’s work worldwide – including families tackling the climate crisis in East Africa, Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar and the millions of people who are desperately trying to survive in Yemen and Syria.
The communities Oxfam Ireland work with are directly and adversely impacted by a climate crisis they did little to create - a crisis they have limited resources to prepare for and defend against. Increased flooding, droughts and storms are destroying lives, homes, jobs, livestock and crops. Climate change is now a major contributor to the displacement of people globally.
Through Fashion Relief and our network of shops, we’re proud to be a solution to ‘throwaway fashion’, encouraging people to donate pre-loved items and reduce the amount of clothes that end up in landfill and shop second-hand to give pre-loved clothes a longer life. We also work with retailers, encouraging them to donate their end of line or excess stock to us instead of sending it to landfill – a more sustainable solution for people and planet!
FASHION RELIEF will mobilise people to donate and shop to ensure maximum impact for communities in need.
All profits will support Oxfam's work in some of the world's poorest countries.
Together, we can beat hunger and poverty for good.
