We are now ready to scale and reach a broader audience by going digital. We've created a pilot of an online course based on STEP 7 - Embrace Slow Fashion and we need to raise $12,5k to develop the other 9 steps of Journey.

We wish to raise these funds through a crowdfunding campaign.


Our team is looking for a volunteer to support launching the campaign in June & July across Australia.
