our purpose

Fabrick Collective is a social enterprise that simplifies shopping for secondhand kids' clothes while generating a sustainable source of revenue for the Elizabeth Fry Society of Ottawa, a registered charity that supports and advocates for criminalized women.
Our purpose is to:
IMPROVE HOUSING FOR WOMEN IN OUR COMMUNITY

Fabrick Collective turns outgrown kids' clothes into cash - the most flexible resource for charities. Thirty per cent of sales go directly to the Elizabeth Fry Society of Ottawa to fund improvements to their transitional housing for women who have experienced incarceration. Since launching in March 2021, we have raised over $10 000!

HELP FAMILIES SAVE MONEY ON KIDS' CLOTHES

Shopping secondhand is far less expensive than buying new - and browsing online saves you time and money! 

Fabrick Collective provides gift cards to mothers in need of a hand up. We have served clients of E Fry Ottawa, the Afghan Canadian Support Network, and the Civic Hospital NICU. Please email hello@fabrickcollective.ca if you would like to connect your organization with this program.

SUPPORT THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Thrifting is great for the environment and reduces our reliance on unethical manufacturing practices of fast fashion brands that affect racialized workers, mostly women, in the Global South.

We make buying secondhand straightforward and accessible by offering an online option for those who find it difficult to get to thrift stores in person.

We simplify donating kids' clothes by offering free pick-up in Ottawa/Gatineau, or by refunding shipping costs across Canada.

Join Fabrick Collective and donate your outgrown kids' clothes today!
