The 2017 Festive Season has come and gone quicker than our new Everyday Essentials range is flying off the shelf. So, we’ve taken time to reflect on the Gifts that Count series over that time, and how the actions made by our team members and customers is making a massive impact on the ground in Uganda.
If you’ve been living off the grid over the past few months, let us quickly fill you in… Gifts that Count are a series of five super cute enamel pins that were sold online and in-store over the Christmas peak period. Each pin represented tangible outcomes necessary in accessing quality education for children in Southern Uganda.
We were overwhelmed with the global support we received from customers, team members and ambassadors and we couldn’t thank YOU enough!
The recognition received was not only Cotton On Group based, with the range being featured across Popsugar, Pedestrian, Whim, Nine Honey, Daily Telegraph, Cosmopolitan, Elle Australia, Geelong Advertiser and many other social media and online news channels.
We’re proud to announce that in just eight weeks, the pins generated over $45 thousand, which in turn can make an impact to the lives of over 4,500 children in Southern Uganda.
Based on sales of each pin:
- 2,964 kids can receive school books and pencils for the new school year
- 890 kids can receive mosquito nets to prevent malaria
- 722 kids can receive meals for a school term
- 170 kids can have access to clean drinking water
- 76 kids can receive a bike to get to school
Without you, our customers, team members, ambassadors and friends, none of this would have been possible.
“It is truly remarkable what we have been able to achieve in eight weeks with the support of team members and customers. This is EXACTLY why we do it”- Jade Slater, Cotton On Foundation Commercial Manager.
