Fashion Makes Change, a project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, recently joined hands with fashion and retail brands across the globe to support the empowerment and education of women in supply chain communities. The first consumer programme, ‘Your Change Can Change Everything’ was launched on March 4 ahead of International Women’s Day on March 8.

Customers are invited to round-up their purchase to the nearest dollar or make a donation when shopping with participating brands and retailers. Select brands will match those funds or offer a donation on behalf of their customers, furthering the effort to uplift the voices of women globally, a press release from Fashion makes Change said.

In a new partnership with Shopify, brands running on the leading global commerce platform are also able to offer their customers a seamless donation experience at checkout with the Fashion Makes Change app powered by virtual fundraising platform Pledge and found in the Shopify App Store.

The proceeds raised will support the Empower@Work Collaborative, a joint effort of United Nations’ International Labour Organisation-International Finance Corporation Better Work, BSR’s HERproject, CARE International and Gap Inc’s Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement (P.A.C.E) programme, which leverages knowledge, skills and collaboration to drive collective action for the direct benefit of women working in global supply chains.

Empower@Work members implement training programs that address critical needs including health, financial planning, problem solving and decision-making, and gender equality. The trainings are designed specifically to better address the complex needs of women working in factories.
