Change for Children Crusade Raises Over $76,000

The Cotton On Foundation’s vision is to empower youth, mobilise communities and build futures. We would not be able to work towards achieving this vision without the support of our customers who, by purchasing Foundation products in Cotton On Group stores, are raising funds for our projects around the world.

It’s the Group’s amazing retail teams who are the important link between customers and the Foundation’s work. By sharing the Cotton On Foundation story, and their passion for the cause, the retail teams help inspire our customers every day to get involved and make a difference.

Over the last three weeks, Cotton On KIDS embarked on a special fundraising campaign with their Change For Children Crusade. Their aim was to raise $60,000 in those few weeks to purchase health care equipment for our new HIV Health and Education Centre currently being built in Mannya Southern Uganda.

The Crusade was simple; customers could create positive change for the people in Southern Uganda, by simply donating their spare change! They could either purchase a Cotton On Foundation product, or give a cash donation via any Cotton On Kids store.

The Crusade was a huge success raising $76,257 - over $16,000 more than their goal. A truly amazing effort!

Did you know that each day 600 babies are born worldwide with HIV?* Or that 270 million children worldwide have no access to healthcare.** As a result of the great work of the Cotton On Kids team and our customers, we’ll be able to do our bit in improving the lives of our friends in Mannya.

Thanks to everyone who supported the Change for Children crusade, your support means we will be able to purchase equipment for testing, treatment and education in our brand new health and education facility.
