Feb 12-Mar 8: Suits for Success clothing drive

Give your gently worn suits and work attire a new lease of life by donating them to Suits for Success, an organization that helps underprivileged people in Hong Kong enter – or even re-enter – the workplace. All business-appropriate clothing for men and women is welcome, from suits and jackets to shirts, dresses, shoes and accessories. With your help, people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to buy smart, work-appropriate clothing will be able to dress for success and nail that interview. To donate, simply drop off your items at any Pure Fitness or Pure Yoga studio between Feb 12 and Mar 8.

The initiative aims to help young adults feel more confident when starting out in their first job by making sure everyone has a chance to dress professionally.

Every SINGLE article of clothing that Suits for Success collects through our clothing drive is reused, recycled and valued. We find a loving home for everything. EVERY. SINGLE. ITEM.

Why is that important to us? Well, modern clothing manufacturing processes involve the use of plastic materials. As a result, the degradation time for textile waste is longer than ever before. This is a big problem for Hong Kong, where the equivalent of 20 double decker buses of household textile waste ends up in landfill every day.

  1.  Eaton House HK!!! WOW….what a venue! Private members club meets co-working space. And here’s a tip…drop your gently worn professional clothes in to the collection box at Eaton House and take the opportunity to snoop around the common area. Or even better, drop Lulla from Eaton House a mail to get a tour of the facilities (central@eatonhouse.com

  2. Suits for Success was founded in 2014 by WiFA Co-Chair, Anna Stephenson, and Suits for Success champion and angel, Kate Reid, who wanted to do something different and impactful to recognize International Women’s Day. The concept is based on similar initiatives in other countries including Dress for Success (which helps folks that are returning to the work place) and the New York City Winter Coats drive. Suits for Success focuses on collecting gently worn professional clothing (both men’s and women’s) for one week of each year in Hong Kong to help disadvantaged youths.....

Clothes for a cause: In support of International Women’s Day on March 8, Women in Finance Asiahas organized a clothes drive called Suits for Success throughout the first week of March. Consider performing an early spring clean, and get your worn clothes and shoes to a collection bin at any Pure Fitness & Yoga studio, Metta, Eaton House before March 9 to show solidarity.

 

Charities like Project Share, Friends of the Earth and the HK Federation of Business Students will be the direct recipients of the clothing, and they in turn will upcycle the goods for youths in need as well as asylum seekers and mothers who want to re-integrate back into the workforce.

Our clothes play an integral role in the way we feel about ourselves. We’re in them day in and day out, and there’s no question that when we look our best, we feel good too. Whether it be a sexy cocktail dress that pairs perfectly with killer heels, a pair of jeans that accentuates our curves in all of the right places, or our go-to power house outfit (that one that closes that business deal and makes us feel like a total #girlboss while doing so), what we wear needs to inspire confidence, right?

Now imagine attending an interview where you’re already nervous and not feeling great about your appearance. Applying for a job is stressful enough without the added pressure of fitting in to Hong Kong’s ever-growing (and expensive) style scene. So, with this in mind, Suits for Success is giving underprivileged young adults a leg up in the business world…

February 20, 2017

Your suit, someone else’s future! Between 1 and 9 March 2017, donate your professional clothing (both men’s and women’s) to Suits for Success to help underprivileged young adults begin successful careers. Your gently used workwear can be easily dropped off to donation points at all PURE Fitness & Yoga centers throughout Hong Kong, Metta in LKF, or Eaton House in Central. In addition to donating, if you are interested in learning more about how you can contribute to this fantastic program, feel free to join the Suits for Success Launch Breakfast on Wednesday 1 March, from 8 – 10 a.m. at Eaton House. Thank you very much for your support of this wonderful initiative, we will report back via social media with the results!
