Talking all things Organ Donor and the great need to get more names on the Registrar, another great initiative is by Native, who have opened The Exchange in Cape Town’s Cavendish. Stocked with clothing and accessories from more than 25 of South Africa’s top designers, nothing in the store can be purchased with cash or credit cards – only by becoming an organ donor.
The concept for The Exchange was conceived by Ryan McManus of NATIVE, who wanted to move the perception of consumerism in the Fashion World to one that can potentially save lives. The pop-up boutique opened on 10 May 2013 and will be open until all the clothing and accessories have been ‘exchanged’.
If you’re in Cape Town and are looking to add your name to the list, consider combining your registration for Bake A Difference, Save 7 Lives with acquiring a new item of clothing. Given that I’m already on the list, I can’t swing by myself … EIther way, The Organ Donor Foundation needs you.
