Ever wondered what it would be like to let the kids take control of your wardrobe? To give them complete power over your outfit selection? Well now is your chance. On 29 April 2016, the country will unite in a day of completely uncoordinated clothing chaos, with the launch of Oxfam’s exciting new fundraising event, Dressed by the Kids Day.
From sequin tops paired with baseball caps and cartoon socks, to your favourite suit jacket worn over that novelty neon vest from your hey-days, it’s time to embrace the unorthodox, throw open the wardrobe doors and let the little one’s loose. Parents, Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents nationwide will be wearing creative outfit concoctions to the office, on the school run or just loudly and proudly at home. What could be more fun?
Dressed by the Kids’ Day promises to unite families in a day of fun interaction designed to help raise vital funds for Oxfam in their fight against world poverty. In just 15 years, extreme poverty has been halved and in 15 more years, it can be ended for good.
In its inaugural year, Oxfam expect to see families across the country embrace the concept and boldly showcasing their new looks on 29 April. How wacky people choose to go with their outfit is limited only by the kids’ creativity and the outlandish items they’re able to find in the back of your wardrobe. Cue lots of giggles from the little one’s as you give them free reign to become your stylist for the day.
Those embracing the opportunity and taking part in Dressed by the Kids’ Day, will support Oxfam’s fight against poverty by seeking sponsorship from friends and family.
Tim Hunter, Head of Fundraising for Oxfam, comments: “On April 29th Oxfam encourages the nation to transform its look to help transform people’s lives in our first-ever Dressed by the Kids Day fundraising initiative. This major new event is an exciting venture for Oxfam. We wanted to design a fundraising event that felt fresh and involved the whole family. It will come as no surprise that children are especially excited by Dressed by the Kids’ Day, so we can’t wait to let their imaginations and creativity run wild.”
Those that want to unite the family in something truly fun and unique are encouraged to sign-up to Dressed by the Kids’ Day via www.oxfam.com/dressedbythekids where they will be issued an interactive fundraising pack designed for adults and children, alongside a unique text code to allow making sponsorship donations even easier.
One Day. Your Outfit. Their Rules
