Dressed by Vinnies is held any day that works for your school or organisation but ideally during Homelessness Week which is 6 -10 August 2018.
Homelessness Week is an Australian wide annual awareness-raising week to highlight the over 116,000 Australians who are homeless on any given night.
Prior to the event all participants need to visit a local Vinnies shop and purchase any item to wear on the free dress day. They will then be Dressed by Vinnies!
Buy a pre-loved hat, necklace, t-shirt, dress, jacket, shirt, scarf and have fun!
Note: The idea is to raise awareness whilst having fun and not to actually attempt to dress as a homeless person.
The funds raised will go to support men, women and children who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness in your local community with vital access to food and accommodation. Vinnies also provides education, counselling, employment and health services to help people overcome poverty.
Vinnies WA will produce a poster, flyer and a small notice you can print or electronically send to participants about the event. We just need you to send us your logo and the date of your event to create your customised artwork.
