Last year The Cotton On Foundation turned the ripe old age of 10, but despite its infancy, the Foundation, in partnership with its customers and team members has raised more than $67 million for its projects globally.
That’s fundamental, life-changing work right there!
We all know just how much I love a good story, especially the type that rewire the psyche, so it was only about time that I shared the story of the Cotton On Foundation with you. Actually, we love the Foundation’s ethos so much, that we invited Sarah Spiker, Project Operations Manager to tell it live at The Cool Career Conference.
