SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fashwire further deepens its philanthropic mission, FashGive, as it partners with Russell Wilson and Ciara’s Why Not You Foundation, an organization which is dedicated to education, children’s health and fighting poverty, empowering today’s youth to lead with a why not you attitude.
Beginning December 1, 2020 until December 31, 2020, Fashwire will donate $1.00 USD for every download of the app (App Store and Google Play) to Why Not You Foundation in support of its mission to equip today’s youth with the skills and opportunities to become tomorrow’s leaders.
“I am honored to support Why Not You Foundation and wholeheartedly share their vision about the importance of encouraging and challenging today’s youth to embrace opportunities, overcome obstacles and make positive impact throughout their lives,” stated Fashwire Founder and CEO Kimberly Carney. “Donating $1.00 USD per download to Why Not You Foundation gives Fashwire the incredible opportunity to leverage our powerful global two-sided marketplace of fashion designers for a worthy cause."
Fashwire’s web and app-based fashion discovery global platform and shopping marketplace brings forward a portfolio of 350+ emerging and established fashion designers across 35+ countries, in the ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories space. “As we look at this past year, we have witnessed the entrepreneurial spirit and challenges faced by our portfolio of designers while simultaneously watching how philanthropic organizations have particularly suffered during these unprecedented times of economic uncertainty,” stated Carney. “It is vital for us to raise our commitment to foundations fulfilling the vital need of providing education to those living below the poverty line while creating a global initiative to create discovery around our designers.”
“The entrepreneurial spirit of the designers in Fashwire’s portfolio is the embodiment of what we strive to teach the next generation every day—to live with a ‘why not you’ attitude,” said Why Not You Foundation Executive Director Carly Young. “When equipped with the proper skills, opportunities, and mindset, the future is limitless. We are thankful to Fashwire as a partner to help make those dreams a reality for today’s youth and beyond.”
