A girl’s first experience as a young adult woman is her Matric farewell and every girl deserves to feel beautiful and empowered on this memorable day in her life.

Sadly, not all girls have the financial means to do so.

This Women’s Month, Poetry is celebrating you and the future females of our country. For the month of August, Poetry is proudly partnering with The Princess Project, a registered NPO that assists less fortunate matric girls with dresses, shoes and accessories to wear to their matric dance.

How is Poetry getting involved?

From 1-31 August, Poetry is giving customers the opportunity to drop off previously loved formal wear clothing items at selected stores across the country. All items will be donated to The Princess Project closet.

As a thank you, each customer who makes a clothing donation, will receive a 20% off* their next purchase. *Ts&Cs apply.
