Congratulations to Costume Box for launching their new Shopify Plus store!

Shop for Change

Posted by Matthew Craig on

MindArc are proud to sponsor and support an innovative new day in the Australian Retail Calendar: Shop for Change, by i=Change.

Innovative tech start-up, i=Change, is launching Shop for Change this International Women’s Day (IWD), to accelerate change for women and girls, by using retail as a force for good. For the 24hrs over IWD, Shop for Change will see select i=Change retail partners donate $5 from every purchase (increased from $1) to women and girls’ empowerment projects in Australia and 13 countries.

“International Women’s Day has always been a day to acknowledge both the progress and significant challenges still facing women and girls globally. We wanted to create a way Australians could engage and shop for change, to raise much needed funds to meaningfully impact these
issues.”
Jeremy Meltzer, Founder, i=Change

As retailers are increasingly looking to build a ‘purpose beyond product’ into their brands, this is the first Australian retail event linked to a global day of awareness for women and girls, enabling Australians to Shop for Change this International Women’s Day.

i=Change has already raised over $1 million and counting, powered by retailers such as Pandora Jewellery, Camilla and Nobody Denim. This has been achieved by brands committing $1 from every sale, allowing their customers to choose where it goes, and transparently tracking the impact in real-time. (i=Change donates 100% of funds raised).

 

There are two launch events on March 7 for retailers and media to attend:

  

i=Change is hosting a VAMFF event (Melbourne 6:30pm)
