Thread: Clothing donation

  1. #1

    Default Clothing donation

    I've got lots of women's (Aus sizes 12-16/UK 42-44) and some men's clothing that we don't wear anymore and rather than just throw away I'm looking for someone/somewhere to donate them to. Are there charity organisations here that I can take the clothes to (like St Vincents, Salvation Army etc in Australia...)? I live in Kemang so I don't want to have to travel very far to drop off.

    I usually give my stuff to the maid to deal with (she can keep them, sell them, give them away, I dont mind) I do know they'll be put to good use.

    Reminds me of the time when we were living in India.
    We had a clear out and Mika decided to dispose of some of her old clothes, amongst which was an old but genuine Chanel dress and shoes.
    Since our maid was a man, didnt see the sense in giving him those items, but a couple of times a week his neice used to come to do the ironing.
    So she got it, I wondered several times after if she ever realised they were real and what they originally cost.

    The British Women's Association collect old clothes which they sell off to raise money for charity if you are interested. Do a goodle search for their website and contact details.
