Join us in supporting Dress for Success: Swap a handbag for a facial!

For Immediate Release: 18 July 2017

On average, we own about 6 handbags and one of the items Dress for Success needs the most, is handbags! So, for 2 weeks from July 24 - August 6 we’re inviting you (and everyone else in New Zealand) to have a look in the wardrobe; find a new or gently used handbag, donate it and swap it for a Caci facial!

All handbags will be donated to Dress for Success, to support their mission of helping women achieve economic independence, and helping them back into the workforce. Since launching in NZ in 1999, Dress for Success has assisted nearly 40,000 women in this country, and up to 72% of their clients gain employment. They empower women with skills, confidence and clothing to make it happen – and this includes dressing them for an interview, from top to bottom, handbag included.

You can donate your handbag to any Caci clinic nationwide, just remember it needs to be in good condition and suitable for a job interview (so no clutches, or canvas tote bags please).

How it works:
1. Drop your handbag into your local Caci clinic between July 24 - August 6

2. Receive your 30min facial voucher!

Handbags needed:

• New or preloved and of good quality

• Suitable for a job interview

• Ready for a new home

About us: At Caci our business is driven by women: we employ over 200 women in New Zealand and 90% of our customers are women. Our purpose is to give women confidence, and we believe that investing in women’s confidence has the power to drive economic growth and strengthen families and societies. We have partnered with Dress for Success to support their mission of helping women achieve economic independence.

T&CS: Donated handbags must be new or gently used. Not accepted: bags with stains, clutches or canvas tote bags. One 30 minute Caci facial voucher will be issued for handbag donations. One voucher per client.
