About Fashion Cares 2008 - the event
Date: Sunday November 1, 2008
Location: MetroToronto Convention Centre
Theme: Fashion Cares presents Fashion sCares
This year we’re putting the fashion back in Fashion Cares with a spectacle that will blow you away: imagine Halloween meets Haute Couture meets Paris is Burning and you’ve got an idea of where we’re going. It’s very exciting!
There have been many positive changes made to the event this year. These changes have come about in an effort to bring Fashion Cares back to its roots ... an intimate community event.. To that end there have been two major changes that have been implemented that have an impact on volunteers.
Firstly. the decision has been made to discontinue the Boutique. Secondly, the event has been downsized, by reducing the number of Gala and General Admission tickets. In so doing, the volunteer requirements for Fashion Cares has reduced significantly.
Volunteer Recruitment Process
In trying to develop a volunteer recruitment process that was fair and equitable to all volunteers - long term and new - it has been decided that all volunteers must register through the website....www.fashioncares.com. - and complete the volunteer application form. Volunteer placement will be on a first come, first served basis.
The volunteer application form currently appearing on the website is a word document. You have several options in how you want to complete it
1) complete the application online then send by selecting from the menu - File - Send to - Mail Recipient as Attachment
2) print the form, and fax to me at 416.340.7558 to Attention: Jim Billing
3) print the form, scan and email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment
If you experience any difficulty in completing the Volunteer Application Form please contact me at 416.340.8484
Submitting an application does not guarantee that you secured a volunteer position. All successful candidates will receive a confirmation email with details regarding their volunteer assignment.
