Swap til’ you drop: A recap of Asana’s first office-wide clothing swap

Fall has officially arrived in San Francisco, and for many Asanas this change of weather also signals a change of wardrobe. 

Being the mindful and mission-driven team that we are, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to infuse our seasonal closet clean-outs with a little extra heartitude. So Asana’s employee resource groups (ERGs) came together and created the first ever office-wide clothing swap in benefit of The Women’s Building, Freedom for Immigrants, and Openhouse. If you’re not familiar with these charities, they tackle some seriously important work in our community. From providing free legal and financial services to local families, to ensuring safe access to housing and health services for LGBTQ-identifying seniors, each group’s mission maps directly back to the causes and issues we care about in AsanaWomen, Gradient, and TeamRainbow.

Embracing Fall and our community

Nearly 100 San Francisco-based Asanas and friends participated in the swap. Together we collected more than 12 bags (that’s 300 pieces) of clothing, footwear, and accessories for Community Thrift Store, which sells donations and disburses proceeds to its charity partners.

Check out our video recap of the clothing swap below, including the impromptu runway show that kicked off to a very aptly-themed clothing swap playlist
