For women looking to spruce up their wardrobe and looking to contribute for a cause, here is the best way to combine both. Make a Change Trust is conducting Made With Love Shopping Festival, which will be on from 11 am to 6 pm at Kasi Arcade in T Nagar. Made With Love is a clothing brand started by the Trust. For all the dress-crazy women, there are bright and pastel attire in all sizes and to match your earring fetish, there are a number of jhumkas in attractive colours. Those dropping by can also place orders, scouring through the different materials available for customised wear.

 Talking about the sale, Anusha Swamy, founder of the Trust, says, “ We have identified children from many schools who are in need of funds and the proceeds of the sale will go towards their education. At least two-third of the price of every item sold goes towards the cause, while one third goes towards the material. We don’t take anything from the sale,” she says.

In line with its cause for bringing about a change, the brand also has taken its social responsibility to another level by roping in the differently abled.
