RUBIES recognizes that not all families are able to buy our swimwear. We have a goal of sending 1,000 free pairs to them over the next year. We can send our swimwear to almost anywhere in the world and cover the shipping costs. We want this initiative to have global reach.
All we ask is that if in the future you feel RUBIES has had a positive impact on you or your child, that you share our story with others. And if circumstances change one day you pay it forward by giving back to this campaign.
HOW IT WORKS
- RUBIES is collecting proceeds from t-shirt sales and corporate sponsorship to fund giving swimwear through the Every Girl Deserves To Shine Campaign.
- If you are a family in need please fill out the following application/survey - RUBIES Free Swimwear Application. All reasonable requests will be met on a first come first serve basis as funds become available. RUBIES is relying on an honour system and the good will of people to make this work. The only criteria is the swimsuit is for a child in your care. The child should be under 19 on the date the application is submitted.
- Once your application is accepted you will get an email letting you know you are on our waiting list. It will include what place you are on the list. When your turn comes up you will get an email with a code. You can then use the code at checkout after adding the swimsuit you want to the cart on this site.
UPDATE: June 2020 - Thanks to Shopify Employees who organized and raised over $20,000 in 24 hrs for this campaign through GoFundMe. We are now able to send out hundreds of pairs.
