The Cotton On Foundation and Cotton On are very excited to announce they have collaborated on an exciting new campaign - #IGiveABrick.
The initiative has a simple mission; to raise $1 million to build a school in Nubbunga, Southern Uganda.
To do this, Cotton On and the Foundation will be encouraging customers to get active on social media and purchase Cotton On Foundation products during November and December.
Every time #IGiveABrick is shared on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or Foundation charity items are purchased in Cotton On stores, money will be raised for bricks and materials and all the costs that go along with building the school.
The funds will go directly towards providing much-needed education, food and support programs for children in the community with the school planned to be up and running by mid 2015.
It will create 500 new educational places, helping to support the Cotton On Foundation’s mission of ‘establishing 20,000 educational places in Southern Uganda by 2020’.
The $1 million dollar plan includes building a new structure with 10 classrooms, two offices for a head teacher and deputy head teacher, a staff room and teachers’ housing for up to five people, a kitchen, latrines/toilet facilities, a play field, vegetable garden, access to clean water and two meals a day for all students, along with a variety of agricultural resources.
Now, we need your help!
Head online or into Cotton On stores this November and December and purchase a Cotton On Foundation product. All proceeds will go to achieving our goal of building our school in Nubbunga.
And don't forget to show your support by uploading a pic of yourself holding a sign with the hash tag #IGIVEABRICK and tag @CottonOn to your Instagram, Facebook or Twitter account and tell the world you give a brick!
Every time the hashtag is shared and Cotton On Foundation product is purchased in Cotton On stores during the months of November and December, you’ll be helping to raise money for bricks and materials to build the new facility.
