“Our dream is to create a nonprofit social project inspired by the 12th sustainable development goal of the United Nations: Responsible Consumption and Production. Our project gears toward abandoned dogs and cats at rescue centers by collecting usable discarded clothes and then donating those so that dogs and cats can lie on the clothes to keep them warm, especially in winter. Moreover, we also take advantage of those clothes to sew new clothes for them. The project benefits two main purposes, which are helping abandoned dogs and cats as well as reducing the amount of clothes waste. We are going to raise awareness about consuming fashion reasonably from such a great gesture! People are not only aware of being responsible consumers but also spread kindness and positivity to the community by donating their discarded items to those in need. That is also one of the core values that the United Nations in general and the 12th goal (Responsible Consumption and Production), in particular, are aiming for. We truly believe that one small action multiplied by thousands of people could somehow positively change our world. That is why we come up with the idea of creating our nonprofit social project!”
