Supporting a good cause, but make it fashion. The Aritzia Community Care Program is giving free clothes to healthcare workers in Canada. Plus, you can help out someone fighting the pandemic by purchasing some for yourself.
The clothing company is donating $10 million in care packages through its Community Care Program with hopes of raising that amount to $20 through community support.
Each package has two of the brand’s most loved t-shirts in assorted colours and two pairs of leggings.
They’ll go to licensed Canadian female healthcare workers like doctors, nurses and healthcare aides who are caring for COVID-19 patients in hospitals, assessment centres and long-term care homes.
All the clothing items feature a special edition heart logo to show love for healthcare workers.
One of the options will set you back $200. You’ll get and give two cotton tees and two leggings made with sweat-wicking fabric.
The other one costs $100 and comes with two tees and two pairs of leggings made with high-stretch fabric.
HEROES AT HEART To our frontline COVID-19 healthcare workers…Thank you doesn’t cut it. To show our gratitude and support, Aritzia has made a lead donation of $10 million retail value in Aritzia Community™ Relief Packages. Now we need your help. When you purchase one of our Sponsor Packages, we’ll automatically donate two additional Relief Packages to frontline COVID-19 healthcare workers – over and above our initial $10 million donation. Follow the link in bio to Sponsor a Hero. #aritziaheartsyou
The buy one, give two sponsor packages are available for purchase starting on May 5 and healthcare workers can claim one online.
According to Aritzia, healthcare workers dealing with COVID-19 must have clean, separate clothes for travelling to and from work.
While the brand isn’t making any PPE, Aritzia is helping out in the way they can. Clothes!
Other brands like Roots, Canada Goose and Bauer have started making equipment like masks, gowns and face shields for Canadian frontline workers.
