As Singapore celebrates its 50th year of independence next year, you can be a part of it by giving back to the society through Zalora's charity initiative. In addition, the online retailer is encouraging fashionistas to donate their pre-loved fashion pieces so that needy families can benefit from these clothing donations.
50 for 50
One of the initiatives, 50 for 50, is about 50 change-makers who are among the Gen-Y community (below 35s) here coming together with 50 companies to raise funds and awareness for 50 charities in Singapore.
Zalora's Marketing Director, Dione, and Social Media Manager, Melissa, are among the change-makers who are part of this initiative.
Their objective is to raise as much funds as they can before 11.59pm on Dec 31, 2014. This will then be matched 1-for-1 with a corporate which will double the amount raise.
This sum will then be matched next under the Care-and-Share funding programme by Community Chest, which will double the fund. That means the total sum will be four times of what the change-maker has raised.
All proceeds raised by Dione and Melissa will be donated to Montfort Care, a local organisation committed to improve the lives of disadvantaged children, families and elderly.

The Zalora Movement
Don't know what to do with all your pre-loved clothes? Zalora will reward you with vouchers when you donate your pre-loved apparels from Dec 19 to Dec 31.
All your pre-loved clothes will be passed on to charity partner of this initiative, The Salvation Army, and given to needy families countrywide, said Zalora.
Donations of five items or less will receive a $10 voucher from Zalora, while donations of more than five items will receive a $15 voucher with no minimum spending.
The donation drop-off point will be at Zalora's shop located in ION Orchard, Basement 2.
