Sometimes all it takes is some young blood eager to make an impression on the society they live in to make others stand up and take notice. A new, youth-focused, not-for-profit organisation, We Don’t Care Inc. (WDC) has set up their first social initiative called The Fashion Fund, a free public event that will take centre stage at Federation Square this coming weekend.
We Don’t Care Inc. was initiated by three young Victorians, Samuel Koh, David Goode and Matthew Sim, and despite the name of their organisation, the young activists certainly do care about social justice issues. They aim to make a difference in communities by helping and encouraging young people like themselves to be more involved in social justice issues and initiatives in order to help understand and alleviate the likes of poverty, homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse and violence.
The Fashion Fund is the first of the organisation’s initiatives and aims to raise awareness and support for the issue of homelessness in Victoria. The event will include live entertainment and a large market of donated, pre-loved designer fashion items by the likes of Marc Jacobs, Hermes, Claude Maus, Topman and more.
Money raised from the market will go towards local homeless shelters to provide much needed services for the homeless in Victoria.
The Fashion Fund will be located at Federation Square (Main Square), on Saturday September 24. Free entry from 10.30am to 7.30pm.
