FROM EVERY ITEM PURCHASED FROM THE SASS + CO. BODY RANGE, WE DONATE 1% BACK TO THE COMMUNITY.
OUR FOUNDATION OF CHOICE, THE REACH FOUNDATION, DOES IT FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF UP AND COMING, RAD LEADERS.
ABOUT THE REACH FOUNDATION
Reach was founded by Jim Stynes and Paul Currie in 1994 with a pretty clear vision – to inspire young people to believe in themselves and get the most out of life.
Reach hosts workshops, which are 100% led by young people who have been on the journey too (called 'the crew'). This allows for deeper connection, a sense of belonging, and the dispelling of judgements.
As well as running all workshops, the crew is involved in ongoing training and development, contributing to the leadership of Reach, and training and mentoring younger crew.
Reach is committed to create generations of confident, self-aware and passionate young people.

WHY WE CHOOSE TO SUPPORT REACH
Sass + Co. Body has always been committed to expressing individuality.
We’re all about body positivity, fierce self-love, and of course, everyone is invited to the party! The Sass partnership with The Reach Foundation has felt like the perfect match from day one.
Reach runs ground-breaking programs such as Locker Room, designed for people who identify as male to explore traditional notions of masculinity, including consideration of the potentially negative consequences that can result. Young men are encouraged to honestly express themselves while challenging gender stereotypes.
By purchasing our products, you become part of our mission to empower everyone to feel comfortable and confident in their own amazing kick-ass skin.
A note from our founder, Colette:
“I’m absolutely ecstatic to be able to pledge 1% of the Sass cash to an excellent charity as The Reach Foundation. This lot really walk the talk by enabling young people to run the show.
Workshop participants have the opportunity to explore and critically question expectations and ideas about their identifying gender in society, working closely with the crew to develop tools, strategies and ideas to promote healthy body image and self-belief.
Their mission is very close to my heart, I love that the young folk run the programs, ensuring relevance, authenticity and empowerment!”
