In an effort to further its philanthropic mission, fashion discovery and shopping platform FashWire is partnering with Cancer Cartel, an organization dedicated to providing financial relief to those fighting cancer.
As part of the partnership, the duo is encouraging individuals to donate gently worn high-end fashion pieces such as clothing, shoes, bags and accessories, so consumers can purchase these items through a community the Cancer Cartel has created to raise money.
“I am delighted to welcome Cancer Cartel into the FashWire family. I see the passion and creativity amongst Cancer Cartel’s incredible female founders. We are likeminded in that we fuse together fashion and philanthropy,” said Kimberly Carney, Founder & CEO of FashWire.
Today, FashWire owns a portfolio of more than 350 emerging and established designers across 40 countries, offering ready-to-wear clothes, shoes and accessories which consumers can discover and shop.
“Our vast global reach of designers and consumers within the FashWire platform is an incredible opportunity to bring awareness to the Cancer Cartel’s initiative, making this the ideal partnership,” said Carney.
Starting May 1, 2021, until May 31, 2021, FashWire plans to donate $1 for every download of the FashWire app to support the Cancer Cartel and its mission to provide financial relief and resources to cancer patients that have been impacted financially.
“This partnership aligns perfectly with FashWire’s core values of community and giving back. Our goal is to help Cancer Cartel achieve its goals to ensure that those in the fight against cancer are able to focus 100% on getting well, and not on how much cancer is costing them,” said Carney.
Cancer Cartel’s three founders Kerry Solmonsen, Katy Tinney and Shelly Tinney-Miller have all battled different types of the disease.
“As three female founders we are honored to partner with other female entrepreneurs like Kimberly Carney on innovative partnerships that look to give back and support fundraising in our fight against cancer,” said the Founders of Cancer Cartel.
“Cancer patients need us more than ever, and these kinds of partnerships are critical for the growth of our mission. We have an opportunity to make a meaningful difference by engaging with FashWire’s global fashion community to generate greater awareness and raise funds for this important cause. We look forward to the impact we can make working together.”
In addition to selling preloved items on their website, Cancer Cartel partners with fashion, beauty, and lifestyle brands on mission-centric exclusive collaborations. Cancer Cartel also has its own branded clothing and accessories line; 100 percent of the profits go back to its company mission.
