The Heart of cabi Foundation, founded in 2005, was created in an effort to empower women in need. From distributing clothing in communities affected by natural disasters, to supporting women entrepreneurs in the developing world to work their way out of poverty, to partnering with non-profit organizations across the US and Canada, cabi aims to make a positive impact.
During Heart of cabi Foundation Week clothes are donated at events across the US and Canada to a range of local charities such as domestic violence charities, Dress for Success affiliates, Breast Cancer support charities and many more. (*full list below of the partner charities). Cabi Stylists across the US and Canada volunteer and organize events in their own region and choose a charity they think would most benefit from their time, their encouragement and the donated fashion items – all of which can change lives.
In the light of Covid-19, the work of the Foundation comes at a critical time when so many women need resources, as well as connection and support from others during this period of isolation. Cabi was quick to respond to the Covid-19 outbreak, raising thousands of dollars ($73,000) for World Vision to fund Family Emergency Kits containing food, cleaning, hygiene and school supplies for families in need, and to buy Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers.
Amy Taylor, Organizer of Heart of cabi Foundation Week 2020 says:
“We want to uplift women in need. These empowering events will give back to the local community. We endeavour to do well as a business in order to give back to the world.
