One hundred per cent of net proceeds directly support the Canadian Diabetes Association
TORONTO, Jan. 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Clothesline is giving Canadians a chance to de-clutter and win! Beginning today and running until March 30, 2014, you can "Cash in on your Clutter" for a chance to win a grand prize $10,000 closet makeover or a weekly drawn $500 VISA gift card.
"Your support not only gives you a chance to win great prizes, but helps make a positive impact in the lives of the more than nine million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes," says Janelle Robertson, General Manager, National Diabetes Trust. "This campaign is crucial as it supports vital diabetes research, advocacy, programs and services of the Canadian Diabetes Association."
There are three easy ways for all Canadians to donate and qualify:
- By phone: Call 1-800-505-5525 to schedule a FREE pick-up (mention "clutter" to be entered).
- Online: Schedule a FREE pick-up at diabetes.ca/clutter.
- In person: Visit a Clothesline Donation Centre. To find one near you, call 1-800-505-5525 or visit diabetes.ca/clothesline.

Each year, Clothesline diverts more than 48 million kilograms of clothing and household items from our landfills. This energy savings is equivalent to planting 8.6 million trees each year or the ability to drive a compact car around the globe 43,000 times.
