Sweater Exchange


This winter, Sydney label Banjo & Matilda are teaming up with Mission Australia to make a difference to the lives of homeless women. Running until August 12th, the Sweater Exchange invites you to give your pre-loved sweaters directly to women in need – even offering courier options to pick up your parcels. Each year almost 46,000 Australian women find themselves homeless, and while the number of men is decreasing, homelessness among women is on the rise. A mix of high profile celebrities are also getting behind this important cause, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Kerr and Ruby Rose. Each celebrity is donating one (or more!) of their pre-loved jumpers, which will be on display at a Banjo & Matilda pop up shop in Sydney’s MLC centre this month. You can also get involved in the social media conversation by using the hashtag #sweaterexchange on Twitter or Instagram. This also might be a great time to complete your winter #Assignmint too!
