Yep, you heard it right: The Philippine Red Cross wants you to shop this weekend.
Here's a little background info. This year alone, the organization received two tons of clothing donations—including evening gowns, designer dresses, and winter wear. And the truth is, those clothes can't be used by calamity victims! Because come on, do you really expect Yolanda victims to be sporting leather jackets?
So Red Cross came up with Aid Couture, a unique used-clothes fashion fundraiser, where donated clothes are sorted, styled, and sold to the public. Proceeds of the sale go to the purchase of more medical supplies, search-and-rescue equipment, hot meals, and clean water.
If you're looking for a fashionable way to help Typhoon Yolanda victims, head to the Alabang Town Center on November 16-17, from 10a.m.-10p.m. and go shopping (without the guilt!).
Every single garment that you buy has a price tag with the equivalent life essential (food, potable water, a hot meal) you'll be providing the Philippine Red Cross—and we think that's a pretty cool way to help out.
