TORONTO, Oct. 2, 2012 /CNW/ - Did your new back to school clothes create a need to make space in your closet? Or perhaps you are unsure what to do with gently used clothing that simply isn't cool anymore?
Clothesline® is here with the solution and a chance to win a trip for four to Walt Disney® World. Starting October 1 and running through November 30, Clothesline® invites all Canadians to Bag it. Donate it. Win it!*
By simply donating gently used clothing, small household items and electronics, donors are entered into a national draw to win a dream family getaway to Disney®. There are three convenient ways to give and be entered:
- Call 1-800-505-5525, schedule your free pick-up, mention the word 'TRIP," and complete your donation.
- Visit diabetes.ca/promise, schedule your free pick-up from your home (and complete the scheduled donation).
- Visit diabetes.ca/clothesline, locate the nearest Clothesline® office and bring your donation directly to us (receive an entry for each bag donated).*
There is no limit to the number of entries received, so contact Clothesline® today and give often! Clothesline® happily accepts gently used clothing, all cloth-based items, footwear, kitchenware, books, toys, electronics and much more. Visit diabetes.ca/trip for full contest and program details.
"We are very proud to celebrate more than 27 years of service in more than 1,000 communities across Canada," said Janelle Robertson, Vice President, Clothesline®. "We continue to offer new and convenient ways for Canadians to make a positive difference in the lives of the more than nine million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes."
*Some conditions apply, please visit diabetes.ca/trip for full contest details.
Each year, Clothesline® diverts more than 46 million kilograms of clothing and household items from our landfills. This translates into a savings of 840 million kWh of energy and reduces our donors' carbon footprint by 115 million kilograms of CO2 emissions. This is equivalent to saving 8.2 million trees annually.
