White Shirt Campaign
Witchery has announced its 12th 2020 White Shirt Campaign collection, in support of the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF). The annual campaign sees the fashion retailer donate gross proceeds of every white shirt sold to OCRF, a foundation dedicated to funding national ovarian cancer research, and has raised over $13 million for ovarian cancer research to date. Currently, there is no early detection test for ovarian cancer, and OCRF says only 20-25% of women diagnosed will survive beyond five years.
From 15 April, the White Shirt Campaign collection will be available in store and online via witchery.com.au
