KIN Culture, a Cape Town-based NGO, has launched a pop-up store in the heart of Cape Town for the month of June. The store follows shortly after the launch of its online store by the same name, www.kincultureshop.org. Both have a unique blend of quality designer products from local producers including ButtaNutt, MovePretty and Bright Owl. Not only will your money be going to local businesses, KIN Culture is in the process of setting up a village for orphans and vulnerable children which will be situated on the urban edge of the city. Kin Culture's pop-up store in Long Street is taking place over the month of June 2015. The organisation aims to use its profits to support those in need, particularly orphans, and is utilising the growing awareness by consumers to spend money on products associated with a good cause for the upliftment of these youngsters. As there are approximately five million orphans in South Africa, and many more children at risk, KIN Culture’s vision to build a village is to offer a place for some of these young people to call home The village will house amenities like a world-class school, medical facilities and a range of exciting opportunities including things like sports, the arts and skills development. KIN Business is encouraging other like-minded businesses to apply their skill and a share of their profits to this concept, the message of which is loud and clear: creating a bright future and a better South Africa for our children is not just a vague dream but a real possibility. Shop for your designer items here or pay a visit to Kin Culture’s pop-up store happening at 150 Long Street, Cape Town.
