Hearty Shoppers raise $38,227

This past Saturday between 9am and 3pm Very Special Kids invaded Malvern Town Hall with its half yearly Fashion Sale, and it was absolute shopping madness.

Overall the sale raised a total of $38,227 which goes directly to Very Special Kids, helping us support over 900 families across Victoria.

Many keen shoppers were lining up in anticipation from 8am onwards and sprung in on a mission to navigate their way through the amazing selection of items.

Our Fashion Sale Ambassador and well known Fashion Blogger Jess Dempsey sounded the welcome horn at 9am to officially kick off the event. Jess, also known as @whatwouldkarldo, puts an amazing effort in every Sale in order to get more people interested, always using her large following for the benefit of things she feels passionate about.


We also had special guest appearances from other well-known bloggers that have also been helping to advertise the Sale over their fashion blogs and Instagram’s.

The large number of volunteers was truly incredible and those involved made sure the Fashion Sale ran as smooth as possible, ensuring everyone had a great shopping experience.

Shopping can sometimes be seen as an act of superficiality, but when people attend events like this it really is so much more than what meets the eye. With every $1250 raised, a child can have an overnight stay at our Very Special Kids Hospice, which offers specialised palliative care and provides families with respite.

On behalf of Very Special Kids, thank you for attending the #vskfashionsale it is so very appreciated and we cannot wait to do it again in November. Enjoy your new items!
