“Make A Difference Day” Outfits for You

We all have opportunities every day to change the world, whether we’re adopting a Highway to patrol for litter or volunteering at a local shelter to help the homeless.

It’s amazing what just a small effort by an individual or group of individuals can do to change the world or at least their local neighbourhood. Make a difference Day was established to help encourage us to take one day a year to make a difference in the world.

How to celebrate Make A Difference Day

The ways to celebrate Make a Difference Day are limited only by your imagination and your willingness to contribute your time and efforts to change the world.

You can start celebrating by alerting people on social media to the upcoming opportunity to make a difference, and then its time to get truly ambitious.

Furthermore, organize a food drive for your local Food Banks to help the hungry and the needy, approach businesses for donations to homeless and domestic violence shelters. You can even volunteer with your local blood bank or at a free clinic to help sign people in.

There are hundreds of opportunities for those interested in changing the world to get involved. Furthermore, dozens of organizations you contact to help you get involved.

Remember, making a difference doesn’t have to involve a grandiose gesture. It can be as simple as buying a coffee for a co-worker who’s looking down, or lunch for a homeless person just trying to get through the day. Moreover, you can even donate your old clothes and blankets to shelters. To clarify, to help people get back on their feet and stay warm. (Original Source: Make A Difference Day)

In addition, one way to make a difference is to support sustainable fashion designers, who make a difference in the world.

  • OhSevenDays

OhSevenDays is a mindfully made womenswear label creating sustainable staples from deadstock fabrics. Essentially, they make slow fashion from fast fashion’s leftovers! Their compact collections revolve around an understated yet charismatic aesthetic and are designed to be multi-functional and compatible within capsule wardrobes. 

The OhSevenDays label was born after Founder, Megan Mummery stumbled across a small district of Istanbul selling off-cut fabric rolls leftover from large garment manufacturers. This unused fabric meterage can be doomed for a landfill due to excess manufacturing or miscalculated consumptions. This discovery sparked an idea; the idea to create a womenswear brand that uses the leftovers to create sustainable regenerative fashion.

They also announced that they’re now partnering with TreeSisters‘ program Trees for Transactions. To celebrate the launch of their new collection, they’re planting 5 trees for every order placed from the new collection this month!

  • LAmade

The brand was founded on the American Dream. LAmade founder Jack Chang and his wife Georgia Chang emigrated from Taiwan in the 70’s to Los Angeles in the search of opportunities for their family. They started out from scratch with a passion for apparel; designing and selling kids’ clothing in their own shop located at DTLA Santee Alley. As their business started growing, Jack wanted to help other immigrants pursue their own American dream. After opening his own clothing factory, he created job opportunities to help the LA economy thrive. They continue to make great quality clothing that they are known for today.

With his son Elbert Chang on board as CEO, they have taken that foundation and grown into a business where they want to do more than just make a great product. Most importantly, the brand wanted to make an impact in the community. Los Angeles is the inspiration for every collection. Its culture and diverse people make it the greatest city for opportunities and chasing dreams. That’s what being LAmade is about. Being creative. Making an impact in the community. Chasing your dreams.
