Fashion Ambassador Jess Dempsey shares why she supports Very Special Kids

Very Special Kids is always thrilled to have the amazing support of our Fashion Sale Ambassador Jess Dempsey. Jess is a fashion and lifestyle blogger, known for her fashion blog What Would Karl Do, and a mum of two boys. Here Jess shares her insights to why she supports Very Special Kids and how you can help support too.

My connection with Very Special Kids comes from being a mum of two little boys. It was Aston who first led me to the charity in 2013 when we went to their annual Fair and since then I have learnt more about the cause and have visited Very Special Kids Hospice.

At first, it was hard to visit the hospice, especially as I thought about what the mothers of these children would be going through. But then I was inspired and humbled as I saw what a great job the nurses and carers do to look after the children that are staying there, and the incredible services that are offered to parents to help them cope.

It was an easy choice to make when I was asked to be the Very Special Kids Fashion Sale Ambassador. Each year the bi-annual sale raises close to $100,000 for the charity, which costs $7million annually to operate, and I feel lucky to be able to help them do that.

I am also proud to be associated with an event that attracts donations from such well-known Australian and International high-street and designer brands.

It’s great to be able to pick up a brand-new designer dress for $50, but I also like knowing that the money I’m spending is going towards helping families and children that need it the most.

Of course, the success of the Very Special Kids Fashion Sale wouldn’t be possible without the shoppers and we’d like to extend an invitation to you to come and enjoy the event.

I promise it will be a shopping trip that’s not just good for your wallet, but good for your heart too, as you help us support children with life-threatening conditions, and their families.

I hope to see you there!
Jess Dempsey
