Caitlin’s Closet® hosts a hackathon to develop mobile apps for our new website.
A hackathon is an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development collaborate intensively and competitively on software projects. We love this idea because it captures the spirit of Caitlin’s Closet® and is a great opportunity to promote the female voice in the technology world. Check out Challenge Post to read how other incredibly tech savvy people are changing the world one app at a time!

Dress for Success is an organization whose mission “is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” Caitlin’s Closet® and Dress for Success were cut from the same cloth: we both want to “outfit” women for important life events! Professional attire always finds its way to Caitlin’s Closet® throughout the year, but this month we will host a Suit Drive and open our closet doors to help Dress for Success continue in its mission.

Just two years ago, the UN declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child to raise awareness about all issues concerning gender inequality around the world. It’s a day when activist groups come together under the same goal to highlight, discuss, and take action to advance rights and opportunities for girls everywhere.
New ideas are literally “popping up” all over NYC during Fashion Week. Aligning ourselves with the fashion industry is key as we take Caitlin’s Closet® to the next level. We have plans for our own Caitlin’s Closet® boutique to “pop- up”!
“Each year International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8, 2015. The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911. Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.” In observation of International Women’s Day, Caitlin’s Closet® plans to host a National Dress Drive. We hope you will join us in celebration of IWD either through our dress drive or in your own unique way that celebrates the advancement of women globally. We all have something to give that can ensure the future for girls is bright, equal, safe, and rewarding. To read more about International Women’s Day click here
