#MyHijab Campaign In Aid of #GrenfellTower Victims and Ramadan Provisions for Syrian Refugees in Greece.
Haute-Elan.com launches the #MyHijab campaign to distribute hijabs on Saturday 17/06/2017 to #GrenfellTower victims and Syrian refugees in partnership with Goodwill Caravan.
London, 16 September 2017 - Haute Elan, a global e-commerce destination for modest fashion is giving back to the victims of #GrenfellTower and Syrian refugees this Ramadan with the launch of #MyHijab campaign. Realising the desperate need for scarves and hijabs for the victims who lost their homes and belongings, the company has decided to relaunch its #MyHijab campaign from last year’s plan, which was originally meant for refugees who are desperately in need of hijabs (the scarf women wear to cover their hair).
The initiative sits within Haute Elan’s Women Collective which is integral to the business and seeks opportunities to support those in need, in particular women. By partnering with Goodwill Caravan who were recently featured on Sky News and visited by Jeremy Corbyn a close supporter of the charity, any excess donated will be taken to women in Greece within 2 weeks. These women similarly facing such a shortage of essentials like a hijab with many women having only the hijab they left Syria in some 6 months ago.
The #MyHijab campaign encourages customers to purchase their choice of hijab on haute-elan.com for £3 that is marked at below cost, and the hijabs will be distributed to the #GrenfellTower victims by the London Haute-Elan team and a team of volunteers of over 30 that have already come together from social media call-out.
Romanna bint Abubaker, Haute Elan’s CEO and founder expresses her profound gratitude and appreciation towards the donors for “the overwhelming response within an hour of the campaign launch at just past midnight last night where we saw more than 200 scarves have been donated and shortly thereafter over 300, all thanks to the generosity from customers all over the world - Saudi Arabia, USA, UK and even as far as Brunei. This type of collective support from individuals all over the world is vital to help those in need and empower them to improve their lives.”
Hijabs will be distributed this Saturday 17/06/2017 at Grenfell Tower, any volunteers interested in supporting may contact us via our social media handle @hauteelan on Instagram. The refugee trip will take place in two weeks where any additional scarves will be donated to the refugees. Volunteers are also required for the Greece trip and British Airways have kindly supported with community flight prices.
