At Robe we want to build something special. Something that is bigger than just what we make (although we think what we make is pretty special!). Something that is bigger than just making profits. Something we can all feel proud of - and that's not just empowering women to feel confident and sexy when they are by the water (although that is pretty cool too).
We want to build a business that serves the community within which it operates. So in February 2019, we created Robe - Humanity. Don't get us wrong - we have supported and donated to plenty of charities and initiatives since we launched in March 2018 but this is a formal commitment to champion one cause every month to help effect positive change and give help where it is needed.
At Robe, we are committed to creating a positive change in the world. We believe we have a responsibility to use our platform to empower people to forge forward and effect positive change and to support local charities and other initiatives.
If you would like the support of Robe Humanity for an initiative or charity event, please get in touch with Isobel at email@example.com.

Queensland Flood Appeal
Bec lived in Townsville for a year when she first moved to Australia, so North Queensland holds a very special place in her heart. For all sales during the month of February, 100% of the profits have been donated to the North Queensland Floods Appeal.
Additionally, Robe is proud to be donating a prize to Style Magazine's Tipsy for Townsville event which will raise further funds for flood relief.
International Women's Day Soirée
Robe was proud to again co-host the International Women's Day Soirée alongside Une Piece and a number of other amazing female founders. All proceeds from the evening go to the UN Women National Committee Australia and The Butterfly Foundation.
Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation
The Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation raises funds for important medical research into paralysis caused by spinal injuries. For the Foundation’s annual 'Everything Is Possible" gala dinner on 23 March 2019 at The Star, Gold Coast, Robe donated a piece from our collection to be auctioned off to raise funds.
Mothers of Boys Muster 2019
Mothers of Boys (MOB) is an Australian charity that was formed by a group of women who were in an otherwise all-male household and wanted to make a difference in their community. MOB not only encourages conversations about topical issues and the challenges of raising boys, but they are raising much-needed funds in 2019 for Rural Aid to help farmers and their families who have been affected by flood, drought, fire and other hardships. In May, Robe is proud to sponsor MOB by donating a piece from our collection for the Muster raffle.
