At Cue we know that the garment life cycle is as important to you as it is to us. We do not destroy or discard surplus fabric or garments. We regularly donate fabric and styles to disaster relief funds or domestic and international charities.
- Each season we donate surplus fabric to The Social Outfit who provide employment and training in clothing design, patternmaking and sewing for people from refugee and new migrant communities.
- Garment donations are made regularly to key charity partners including Dress For Success, Thread Together, Wesley Mission, Youth Off The Streets and various international organisations.
As a company we are proud to support a number of charities, notably the Garvan Institute of Medical Research who have pioneered insights into some of the most widespread diseases affecting our community today, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Legacy Australia, the Starlight Children’s Foundation and the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, for their ongoing commitment to raising awareness of important issues and their contribution to our community.
In December 2020, we launched a special promotion in support of the wonderful charity, Dress for Success in Australia. For every Georgette Wrap Front Dress sold within a two-week period, we donated 20% of the retail price to Dress for Success. Dress for Success empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we repurposed our Australian manufacturing facilities and design team to sew scrubs for the frontline staff at St Vincent’s Hospital. The initiative not only helped healthcare workers, but it also protected the livelihood of our local manufacturers and suppliers, amidst a very hard time. Later in 2020, we also donated $10 from every Cue Face Mask sold in our Sydney, Melbourne and Online stores to St Vincent’s Hospital to help care for our community.
