Nothing like a model using her looks for a good cause, right? We can add Victoria’s Secret beauty Shanina Shaik to that list now that she’s lending a helping hand to The Sweater Exchange charity. The 23-year-old appeared on The Today Show with Karl Stefanovic this week to promote the organisation founded by Aussie label Banjo & Matilda.
“The Sweater Exchange charity has partnered with Mission Australia to collect pre-loved sweaters in the community and give them to women and children in need for wintertime,” Shanina explained. It was the Just Jeans model’s mum that inspired her to be part of the great cause, but admits she feels “really good inside” being able to give back.
If you’ve got a knit that doesn’t get to jump out your wardrobe and see the light of day, then why not give it to someone who needs it, and let it get the wear it deserves? With over 45,000 homeless women in Australia, there’s no time like the present to donate to this worthy cause. Drop your unwanted sweaters at Banjo & Matilda’s Paddington store in Sydney or visit the site to organise a pickup.
