Proceeds directly support the Canadian Diabetes Association
TORONTO, Aug. 14, 2014 /CNW/ - With summer in full swing, Canadians can de-clutter their homes for a chance to win a $5,000 travel voucher that can be used anywhere around the world, or one of 10 $500 regional travel vouchers! Clothesline's Your imagination is your destination, donate to win a dream vacation campaign is running from Aug. 14 until Nov. 30.
"Your donation of reusable clothing will give you a chance to win some great prizes, divert items from landfills while helping to 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. "Proceeds will support vital diabetes research, education, advocacy efforts, and important programs and services of the Canadian Diabetes Association such as D-Camps for children and youth living with type 1 diabetes."
There are three easy ways for all Canadians to donate their gently used clothing and qualify to win:
- By phone: Call 1-800-505-5525 to schedule a FREE pick-up (mention "Imagine" to be entered).
- Online: Schedule a FREE pick-up at diabetes.ca/imagine.

Each year, Clothesline diverts more than 48 million kilograms of clothing, household items and electronics from Canadian 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.
