An insight into our merchandise strategy, collaborators and partners.
Every good strategy takes time to implement! This is why we are still working on making the shop and active part of this website.
Don’t fret! There will be a shop that allows you to purchase merchandise and in turn support us and our partners. We are just taking the time to perfect this.
Keep an eye out, we will make sure everyone knows when it is up and running!
As our name suggests, Chasing Change strives to create meaningful and long-lasting change with the work we do. Our core values are Community, Collaboration and Conversation. These values flow through every aspect of our organisation, including the way we approach our merchandise.
In our early days, we purchased branded merchandise that was cost effective,with the intention to sell, make a profit and use that profit to support our mission. However, after some reflection, this approach didn’t sit well with us, our values, or our efforts to create meaningful change. So, we decided to create a merchandising strategy that aligns more closely with our values and will help create positive change in our communities and the world. You can read more about this below.
What is our merchandise strategy:
Our merchandising strategy is focussed on our three key values of Community, Collaboration, and Conversation.
All our merchandise is now sourced through collaboration with ethical, sustainable, and where possible, local businesses.
We have taken the time and effort to find and support businesses that are trying to chase change in their own way and collaborate with them to create Chasing Change branded merchandise.
By doing this, we hope to pave the way for an open conversation about how organisations can raise their funds while contributing to the social and environmental health of their communities.
How we choose our collaborators:
We choose our partners based on a variety of aspects, all centered on the fact they are trying to act ethically, responsibly and bring a positive change to the communities they operate in. We simply want to partner with other businesses who are genuinely trying to make their community, or the world at large, a better place.
If you think this sounds like you and your business and you can offer merchandise for Chasing Change to stock, we would absolutely love to hear from you!
