If you’re anything like me, you’ll have a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear for that special occasion. The number of clothes in my wardrobe over the last five years has been ridiculous. I’ve had maternity clothes, work suits and formal wear, clothes for evenings out and casual clothes for days spent at home. I’ve kept the majority of my clothes, for just in case, for when I’ve slimmed into them or because they remind me of when I felt amazing in that pretty party dress before I got pregnant. It’s silly really as they’re taking up valuable space (that I could fill with even prettier dresses) and I probably won’t ever wear them again.
#IGiveUpMy clothes for a good cause
So what do you do when you have a wardrobe full of clothes that no longer fit and you could really do with having a good sort out? The Give Up Clothes For Good campaign from Cancer Research in partnership with TK Maxx is a brilliant way to say goodbye to all your used clothes for a fantastic cause. All your donated items will be sold by Cancer Research UK in their shops to raise vital funds to help children beat cancer sooner.
It’s estimated that 10 children every day are diagnosed with cancer. That’s over 3,800 children every year. The statistics from Cancer Research UK are pretty frightening but thanks to pioneering research, more children are beating cancer than ever before. I can’t imagine how scary that diagnosis must be, but it’s got to be reassuring that Cancer Research UK and TK Maxx are doing everything they can to help these kids out.
How can I help?
Bag up your unwanted quality clothes, accessories and homewares and take them along to your local TK Maxx store where they’ll send them on to sell in Cancer Research UK shops. There are permanent donation points in store all year round where you can drop off your bags to help out with the campaign.
You can find out more about the Give Up Clothes for Good campaign here and I urge you to spring clean the wardrobe, make some space and do some good with those unwanted clothes.
