Goal: $1,000

$1,460 raised so far,   CONGRATULATIONS!

                               Hello & welcome to my page!!

The Global Solidarity Challenge is extremely important to me because I have seen first hand the amazing and impactful work VIDEA engages in both internationally and within Canadian communities. Last year I spent 6 months living in Uganda while completing an internship facilitated by VIDEA and this experience taught me how important a human rights frame work is to development! It is for this reason I am choosing participate in this years Global Solidarity Challenge because I am committed to creating a more just and sustainable world and because you clicked on this link, I bet you are too!

The Trend Defiers team is focused on raising awareness about the exploitative fast fashion industry. Inhumane working conditions, extremely low wages of garment workers (who are primarily women and children) and devastating environmental impacts are direct outcomes of our current fashion consumption patterns. It is clear that cheap clothes and fast fashion are damaging to people and the planet! For my challenge I will be living on $1.25 a day to stand in solidarity with garment workers who work extremely long hours for low wages and whose human rights are regularly violated. 

I will also refrain from buying new clothes for two months and during that time, figure out more sustainable ways to find clothing! Changing the fast fashion means being committed to changing consumptions patterns, and I intend to reflect more critically about the way I am buying and wearing my clothes!!

VIDEA relies primarily on donors to keep their programmes running and I am incredibly excited to fundraise for an organization that is truly making a difference in the world. Thank you for reading my page and please consider donating to such a worthy cause! Any amount will make an impact :)
