Aritzia is donating $10 million in free clothing to healthcare workers

Aritzia is donating $10 million in free clothing to healthcare workers across Canada and the U.S., and the special edition tees and leggings look so cozy.

The Vancouver-based clothing company is giving away 80,000 care packages to Canadian female healthcare workers through its Community Care Program.

Each Aritzia package is valued at $240, and it will consist of two special edition tees with a sweet heart logo and two pairs of the brand's iconic Atmosphere leggings.

You can help give back by purchasing a package for yourself, too; for every care package sold, Aritzia will give two packages to healthcare workers.

The company offers two different packages, available for purchase starting on May 5.

The first $100 package consists of two cotton tees and two leggings made with high-stretch fabric, and the other $200 package comes with two cotton tees and two pairs of leggings made with sweat-wicking fabric. 

"PPE isn't our specialty, but clothes are," the Aritzia website says. "Healthcare workers must undertake rigorous sanitization routines before and after each shift to keep their families and community safe."

"Current standards require them to have clean, separate wardrobes for travelling to and from work. As a women's fashion boutique, this is something we knew we could help with."

Healthcare workers can sign up to receive a package starting May 11.
