This April, the Tots100 are supporting TK Maxx and Cancer Research UK with their Give Up Clothes for Good campaign. The campaign is in its 5th year and is the UK’s largest charity clothing collection, raising funds for research into beating kids cancer.
Every day, 4 children in the UK are told they have cancer. Cancer Research UK is funded entirely by the public which is why they need our help to continue its work and help even more children stay alive.
To get involved, simply:
- Bag up your unwanted, quality clothes
- Drop them off at your local TK Maxx
- Each bag could raise up to £30 for Cancer Research UK
After rooting through my wardrobe I’ve found a couple of dresses that have been gathering dust for a few years.
On the left is a dress I bought from the hippy market in Ibiza in June 2008. I doubt it’s worth very much but it’s fairly unique. I still really like the dress but it’s a bit too short and *cough* tight for me to wear these days.
The dress on the right is even older, I think I probably bought it around 2006 and has only been worn once that I can remember, to an engagement party of one of M’s friends. It’s a nice dress but not really my style any more.
These dresses will be being bagged up and taken to my local TK Maxx to help with their campaign. Why don’t you see what’s lurking in your wardrobe too?
