2017 Women’s Clothing Donation Campaign A Success
We are excited to announce that our 2017 women’s clothing donation campaign was an extreme success. We received donations from all around the world including our primary donation sources from Canada and the U.S. We started this campaign with a dream in 2016 to provide the young girls of Mirissa with fashionable women’s clothing for school and work. What we discovered was that there were more individual businesses willing to donate shirts, skirts, and shoes to the greater cause. What we have in Mirissa are small private schools that require students to dress to code. Part of that dress code for the girls is a collared top, white skirts, and closed toed shoes. Due to the increase in donations from participating countries we were able to donate shirts, skirts, and shoes to all of the young women in need of a uniform. Some people have questioned the logic behind uniforms in school in developing countries, especially since it’s harder to acquire specific items like collared shirts and skirts. What we are trying to teach the young women of Mirissa is responsibility, and character. The idea of waking up early and preparing yourself professionally for a days work instills an ethic within these young girls that will carry on into adulthood. We hope this helps them along in life from college to careers.
A Big Thank You From The Women Of Mirissa
We gathered at a community meeting to discuss the abundant amount of donations we received from around the world and I must say it was a tearful event. The girls were so overjoyed to have received shirts, skirts, and shoes from around the world that at the end of the event we all gathered to take a group picture that will be featured on our thank you cards. There are so many businesses and individuals to thank that it would become difficult to list them all here. The women of Mirissa would like to extend a big thank you to people of Canada and the United States for their continued support and contributions to our cause. Young women around the world all deserve an opportunity to receive an education in an environment that promotes equality and builds a foundation for a lifetime. With the help of the global community and our friends on the internet, we have been able to raise the funds needed to build new schools, government offices, healthcare facilities, and learning labs. We can not begin to express how thankful we are to all of you that have continued to support us here. Below is a short list of our sponsors that have gone above and beyond with their contributions.
Thank You To Our Sponsors
Thank You From The Bottom Of Our Hearts
Again, we want to thank all of our sponsors that have donated shoes, shirts, and skirts to the women of Mirissa. We could not have achieved the success we have had without your ongoing support and selfless donations. Our students have clean uniforms to wear to school and that helps build confidence and lets them know that other people in the world care about their well-being. Thank you from all of us here to all of you around the world that have donated clothing, time, money, and emotional support. Our clothing campaign of 2017 has truly been a success that the girls will never forget.
