Here at The SQ Studio we don’t just preach ethical, encourage slow fashion and buying locally we actually put our money where our mouth is!
We support and promote many great causes that benefit the community, the planet and simply make the world a better place. Our motto is “be the change you want to see in the world” it is simple but we believe simple steps is all we all need to take to band together to make substantial change. You do the maths. We have 7.4 billion on the planet and growing if we divide it by 3 as at least 60% of the world is 2nd world we still have 2.46 billion x this by ONLY $1 a day (365 days) this would equal $900 billion per one year in aid or help to those that need it most. See how just a little could make a huge difference?
Just a few of the things we are committed to we do a lot of things on a local level at schools and other charitable donations but these are our major commitments:
SAVE THE DEVIL APPEAL- We donate annually to www.savethedevilappeal.com.au in 2016 we help to raise and doante over $750 in total we have raised $3150
WORLD VISION https://www.worldvision.com.au/ - we sponsor two children and have done for many years plus we donate an additional $30 per month to stopping child slavery and trafficking https://www.worldvision.com.au/global-issues/work-we-do/child-slavery this equals $1080 each and every year so far over $6480
DAYS FOR GIRLS -We are super excited in 2017 to be part of something very close to my heart Days For Girls Australia www.facebook.com/daysfotgirlsaustralia.com a global grass roots non for profit organisation www.daysforgirls.org creating a better future for girls by providing advocacy, reproductive health education and sustainable feminine hygiene products. Because NO girl should miss school or be shunned for something that is a natural monthly occurrence. DFG girls are given dignity and self-value so they can become equal participants and agents in social change. Their vision, to have every woman and girl in the world with access to quality sustainable hygiene products and health education. Can you imagine missing school for a week every month and sitting on your bed on leaves or bark or even worse banished to a dirty mud hut for a week? This breaks my heart, so our commitment for 2017 is this $50.00 per month will help to buy fabric etc. for approximately 5 kits per month....That’s 5 girls whose live will be changed!....12 x 5 = 60 Girls!!! OR it would buy at least 65 face washes (for 65 +kits) OR briefs for approx. 12 kits (2 pr. Per kit)
What’s in the kit? Each washable kit contains 2 shields, 8 liners a pair of underwear, a wash cloth, 2 zip lock bags all contained in a drawstring bag to maintain privacy. Each kit gives a girl 8 months of living back in just 3 years.
How can you help? Buy supporting small local ethical brands you personalley support global change, you help us to do good the good that big corperations don’t do as they put profit before people. Or you can go directly to a cuase close to your heart and donate and it doesn’t need to be big remember what just a dollar a day can do.
We support positive global change!Also we support The Starlight Childrens Foundation for over the past few
years giving $360 annually!
