For just R25, you’ll have access to over 200 fashion and beauty products, both new and gently worn, for the ultimate in retail therapy. And to sweeten the deal, a percentage of all sales will be donated to Muslim Hands NGO to facilitate the building of a well for an African community in need. A sanitary towel drive will also take place, so be sure to bring some along to donate to the cause and do your bit for girl power!
