The Buy My Freedom Campaign aims to raise awareness of organisations that support victims of human trafficking. It is estimated that there are 27 million slaves in the world, with the majority being women and children. The average age of a slave is 12 years of age. We often do not see the victims of human slavery but many are exploited in the production of the clothes we wear.

This campaign comes from a girl who, at the age of 8 said enough is enough, and begged those around her to do something to help. We decided to support her vision by hosting a clothing swap where people can bring women’s and children’s clothing that they no longer want or need and trade them for something they like. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to support the A21 Campaign.

We will also be having a minimarket with goods that are either handmade or come from slavery free sources.

CLOTHING SWAP DETAILS

Clothes can be dropped of prior to the event on Sunday the 26th of October and Sunday the 2nd of November between 2-3.30pm at the Margaret Catchpole Room, Level 2 (above the library), Rouse Hill Town Centre. Clothes can also be dropped off between 4-5pm at Rouse Hill Public School on the night of the clothing swap.
