Shopping with heart and playing your part

If the saying ‘win, win’ was ever timed appropriately it would definitely be now.

This past Saturday from 9am until 3pm Very Special Kids invaded Malvern Town Hall with its half yearly Fashion Sale, and it was absolute shopping madness.

Overall the Fashion Sale raised a total of $50,107 which goes directly to Very Special Kids, exactly why we call it shopping with your heart.

Many keen shoppers were lining up in anticipation from 8am onwards and sprung in on a mission to navigate their way through the amazing selection of items. It was great to see so many people excited and enthusiastic.

Our Fashion Sale Ambassador and well known Fashion Blogger Jess Dempsey blew the welcome horn at 9am to officially kick off the event. Jess, also known as @whatwouldkarldo, puts an amazing effort in every Sale in order to get more people interested, always using her large following for the benefit of things she feels passionate about.

We also had special guest appearances from other well-known bloggers that have also been helping to advertise the Sale over their fashion blogs and Instagram’s.

The large number of volunteers was truly incredible and those involved made sure the Fashion Sale ran as smooth as possible, ensuring everyone had a great shopping experience.

Shopping can sometimes be seen as an act of superficiality, but when people attend events like this it really is so much more than what meets the eye.

With every $1250 raised, that is an overnight stay for a very special child at our Very Special Kids Hospice.

On behalf of Very Special Kids, thank you for attending the #vskfashionsale it is so very appreciated and we cannot wait to do it all again later this year on November 19, save the date!
