Hello to all Chic Mamas, friends & loyal supporters,

It’s that time of year again! Mandela Day (this year a Centenary Celebration) is fast approaching, which means the chance to celebrate our collective power and make a positive impact within our local communities by helping disadvantaged preschoolers get a better start in life.

What we’re doing

Thanks to the support of some great local businesses, we’ve placed a host of boxes in the area and between Wednesday 4th and Friday 20th of July, we’ll need you to help fill them!

We’re collecting preloved handbags AND preschool supplies, depending on where you donate to. There’s a list below so keep this mailer safely in your inbox so you know where to go.


Note: We resell these to raise funds for our causes so please bear this in mind and donate good quality handbags only.

What now?

Please please support us. Between us, we really can make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged kids in our local communities. And doesn’t it feel good to give! We’re quite sure everyone has a handbag they no longer use so why let it gather dust in your wardrobe when it can be put to good use? As for the school supplies, these can all be bought cheaply, easily and locally.

Please share this mailer with your friends and family, colleagues and community. Imagine how great an impact we could have if EVERYONE we know gets on board?

Anything else?

A HUGE thank you to the organisations who have come on board to support us with this drive. You’ve shown us just how much you care and we really appreciate that.

And finally, we really appreciate all your ongoing support. We’re a passionate team of Chic Mamas on a mission, who can only do what we do, thanks to all of you.
