Delta Gamma for Charity Denim :: Event coverage

We just got back from Delta Gamma’s bi-annual charity denim sale, held at the gorgeous DG sorority house on Channing. While some of the girls tried on jeans, I had the opportunity to talk to Nina Krauter, the organizer of the event, and to ask her a few questions.

How did you get these jeans at a discount?

We’re in collaboration with
Charity Denim, which is a company that collects designer jeans from sample sales and from previous seasons’ overstock.

How did you get the idea to start a denim sale for charity?
DG chapters around the nation do it, so it’s been happening for a long time.

How long have you been doing this sale?
I talked to some of the people who’ve been doing this for a while and even they aren’t sure, because DG has been doing this for such a long time!

Do you find that there are trends in the brands of jeans people buy?
Well we have some statistics, but
Sevens are really popular.

Could you tell me more about Service for Sight?
Service for Sight is a DG Foundation and our national philanthropy. It funds research as well as schooling for blind children.

I was also lucky enough to meet Steven Price, the founder of Charity Denim, and to ask him about his perspective on the company. He believes that Charity Denim offers the general public a unique fundraising opportunity. The idea facilitates the use of previous seasons’ overstock to raise funds in collaboration with student organizations and other non-profits. All proceeds from Charity Denim sales go towards charity.

Mr. Price got the idea for Charity Denim via a senior class project at Brigham Young University. He graduated in the winter of 2003, and by spring of 2004, Charity Denim was created. Since then, the non-profit organization has involved in fundraisers across the nation.
