Womance has been involved for several years with various causes.
It is an integral part of our business.
“A business doesn't have to be huge or have decades of existence to find a way to help those who need it most. Yes Womance offers clothing and accessories, but she has the chance to reach a large pool of people, and that is not only a privilege for me but also a responsibility. This is why the "Give to Help" initiative came into being. »- Andréanne Marquis, founder of Womance.
'' Donner pour aide '' aims to raise donations, directly on the online store, for various non-profit organizations in the Quebec City region. It is possible for Womance customers to make donations quickly and easily, with or without purchase. All donations collected are given to the organization we promote.
In April 2020, the first “Give to Help” campaign was launched. The organization supported was Moisson Québec, the only food bank in the greater Quebec City region. This first campaign raised $ 20,000 in 1 month! The donations collected were used to purchase foodstuffs, thus allowing Moisson Québec to ensure the pursuit of its mission. Thank you again to our amazing customers for having Donner to help.
Before creating '' Donner pour aide '', we helped many causes in Quebec City in our own way. In June 2019, we donated $ 25,000 worth of new clothing to women in need. We allowed them to shop for free for one day. With the help of the MIELS-QC organization, we joined around ten organizations. In November 2019, we participated in our very first fundraiser organized with various partners where we raised $ 10,000 for the ADOberge organization, which offers help and support to adolescents.
Most recently, in August 2020, we repeated our initiative to give new clothes to those who need them most. These clothes are items with small defects that we have repaired and then offered them. We donated $ 15,000 in clothing to the Center multiethnique de Québec and $ 15,000 in clothing to MIELS-QC! We are also committed to helping the Center Multiethnique de Québec throughout the year. We will work with them to help them on many levels.
