So, we’ve been simplifying. I know you know this, because it’s a fairly strong current that’s been running through every word I’ve shared in the past year, maybe longer? Broken record over here. (But I kind of like the scratch.)
Ever the cliche, January sounds like the perfect time to clean out a closet or two, yes? I’d been slowly purging 75% of my wardrobe over the past three months (wayyyyy more on that later), so when Schoola asked to see if I’d like to donate a few pieces from mine and Bee’s wardrobes for their #PassTheBag campaign, I took it as a sign from the heavens that we’re on the right track – the track to less and slow and get this clutter out of my house.
And that we did. I hopped online and requested a donation bag to fill to the brim with our gently used clothing that had been outgrown or simply unused, unworn, unnecessary. (You can do the same right here!) The cool part? Schoola will re-sell my pieces with $2 out of every $5 purchased going toward my favorite community school.
As a daughter of two school teachers, my respect for our educational system and the ones who serve children daily is unmatched, so of course, I’m thrilled with the ability to help fund art/music programs with a few bags of clothes we no longer need. Trash to treasure, by far.
If you’d like, you can take the #PassTheBag challenge and purge a closet or two with me – details are below!:
- Visit Schoola and request a donation bag here.
- Fill it with gently used clothing from your closet (a new women’s category launches this spring!), or your kids and pop it in the mail.
- Challenge your friends to do the same on Twitter, Facebook or your favorite social channels (Instagram, for me!).
- Pat yourself on the back, and check in to your school’s fundraising page on Schoola to see how your sold items are generating funds for your local art and music programs. A win/win/win, yes?
Thanks, Schoola, for getting creative with our spare clothes (a far better route than that quilt I’d been procrastinating on…).
p.s. This post is part of a paid campaign for Schoola, a start-up I’m happy to support. Thanks for reading!
