Donate Clothes, Get Gift Cards

Category : gifts, shopping

Got some nice clothing or accessories you don’t use anymore? Consider sending them to Fashion Project. This new website is an interesting concept – you send them your gently-worn clothing, handbags and accessories (they’ll send you a postage-paid donation bag) and then decide which charities you would like to benefit from your donation. When your item sells on their Marketplace, the cash is then sent to the charity – and as a bonus and thank you gift, you’ll receive a gift card. There’s no limit to the amount of gift cards you can earn, or the clothing you can donate. And, as a Fashion Project member, you’ll get to shop their FP Marketplace, full of high-end items from other members.

Get started with Fashion Project here. For a limited time, you can also get 20 percent off your first Marketplace purchase with code SHOP20.

Sounds like it’s time to start digging in my closet…
