GivingTuesday was founded as a simple idea: to bring people together for a day of giving back. It has since spread like a wave across the world, with over 160 countries participating in 2018. Now, in its 8th year, Giving Tuesday is celebrated in nearly every country on earth.
Giving isn’t just about making a donation. It’s about making a difference. Throughout #GivingTuesday, 3 December, we’re sharing the many different ways you can support Groomed to Go to provide professional attire, development tools and on-going support, and strive to make employment pathways a reality through our two operating businesses: Dress for Success South East Melbourne and Smart Blokes.
How You Can Help
Be the difference and give the gift of a new beginning to someone in need.
Who We Are
Groomed to Go Inc., trading as Dress for Success South East Melbourne and Smart Blokes, is a registered not-for-profit organisation that offers a dressing and support service for clients who need to rebuild their self-confidence and self-esteem as they seek work.
What We Do
Our goal is to inspire people to achieve financial independence by providing services that help them thrive in daily work and life.
We offer a dressing service for men and women who do not have access to professional attire for interviews or work. We also offer one-on-one coaching in interview techniques and resume building, plus a series of workshops to help build the essential skills needed in work and life.
To learn more about the services we offer, go to our PROGRAMS page. We also have a Pack n Send Program for people in regional areas without access our premises. All of our services are provided free to clients.
Groomed to Go Inc. relies on fundraising events, community support, personal and corporate donations, and grants. We are endorsed by the ATO as a deductible gift recipient charity.
