At the recent Halogen Australia National Young Leaders Days, students heard the story of the Cotton On Foundation. The story encompasses how millions of dollars are raised through Cotton On group fashion stores, and needy schools and communities around the world benefit in numerous ways.
During the breaks of the National Young Leaders Day, students were able to purchase items from the Cotton On Empower Station, including empower wrist bands, water bottles, tote bags and other accessories. In total $10,000 was raised and the Cotton On Foundation are inviting the student leaders of Australia to choose how the money will be spent.
The Cotton Foundation have put forward 3 choices for the $10,000 and these are listed below. They are all excellent causes!
OPTION 1: A huge Rhino water tank (holds 10,000 litres of water for a school)
OPTION 2: 42,000 nutritional meals for school students
OPTION 3: A years worth of health services for young mums in a hospital
