The Great Charity Suitcase Rummage

PART OF UNIQUE’S CULTURE IS THE STRONG BELIEF IN GIVING BACK TO CHARITY. EACH WEEK, THE UNIQUE TEAM PROUDLY DONATES TO SANDIPANI MUNI SCHOOL IN VRINDAVAN, INDIA.

Generous Unique staff voluntarily donate a potion of their pay to support four gorgeous girls. The all-girls school is located 120km South of Delhi in one of the poorest villages in Vrindavan and educates over 1500 needy children from kindergarten to the end of inter-school. The sponsorship from Unique helps cover the girls’ cost of transport to and from school, uniforms, books, education and three nutritious meals a day while attending school.

Inspired to do more for the entire Sandipani Muni School, the Unique team scoured through their wardrobes and kindly donated new and pre-loved clothing, books, jewellery and shoes for an onsite charity suitcase rummage. The event was an all staff, all day affair and a great success!

Selling over 130 items at a gold coin donation, plus the proceeds from an auction of a beautiful hand-crafted pot, saw Unique raise over $230 on the day.

This figure has an incredible impact, it means that five students from Sandipani Muni School receive life changing eye surgery within the year and it covers all costs of medical treatment needed for all 1500 students for a day.

Unique’s locally supported charity, Endeavour, also received over 200 saleable items of clothing to sell in their charity stores, which is much needed leading up to the holiday season.

After such a successful event, Unique is inspired to make the charity suitcase rummage an annual occurrence. It has also encouraged the team to think of other exciting ways Unique can fundraise for charity in the future.
