Our #WCW this week & we bet for weeks to come is…*drum roll* Ruby Chikwiri! She’s a babe with a heart of gold! 💛
Here’s why, it’s graduation season across the country RN & UCT graduate, Ruby Chikwiri will not be attending her honours graduation ceremony due to outstanding fees 😩. Rather than be disheartened, she took inspiration from this & reached out to Twitter to rally support for fellow graduates who need assistance to make their graduation day special.
This is how the hashtag #dressagraduate was born!
Since we’re obsessed with #dowhatsright initiatives like Ruby Chikwiri’s mission to #dressagraduate we’re supporting this cause by committing to dress 10 graduates. 👌
Having spoken to Ruby, we found out that her biggest struggle was getting help with the transportation of the donations coming from all over the country. We really wanted to lend our support & reached out to our logistics service provider, ACT-logistics services who have also committed to assisting Ruby. Yay! 💃
If you’re a grad who needs an outfit you can search the hashtag #dressagraduate on Twitter.com to view the items being donated, its location & available sizes. You could also reach out to Ruby directly via DM or email & provide her with your needs.
If you’re someone who’s able to partner with Ruby or simply would like to donate shoes or an outfit or contribute your makeup services for a graduate’s special day, you too, can reach out to Ruby via the email address provided in the tweet below or just click here: @ruby_chikwiri.
If you’re going to reach out for help or in order to help, then you’ve gotta do so quickfast as all graduations would have come to a close by the end of May.
