These days we’re spending a lot more time indoors, but it’s not without reason. By practicing safe social distancing and isolation, we’re all helping to flatten the curve and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
While you might feel helpless sitting at home, know that by staying inside, you are giving back to your community. If that doesn’t feel like enough, there are so many ways you can give back without even leaving your place.
During these times, non-profit organizations need our help.
Many of these organizations have put accepting physical donations on hold, postponed community services, and have closed their doors to the public, which means there’s less to give to the marginalized individuals who rely on the services of these organizations. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still help.
You can still donate funds to these organizations online, or start your spring cleaning and save your donations for when the organizations open their doors again.
We want to see you clean out your closets for a good cause for the #SDSpringCleaning Challenge.
From now until April 30, we’re challenging you, your family, and friends to clean out your closet and start a donation pile. Once you’re finished, snap a picture on Instagram or Instagram stories of what you’re donating and tag @StyleDemocracy, the organization you plan on donating to, and #SDSpringCleaning. The contest is open to those in the greater Vancouver and Toronto areas.
If you can’t think of any organizations, there are plenty of places to donate your clothing across Toronto and Canada. Some of them include Dress For Success, Convenant House, New Circles, and Jessie’s Centre.
Everyone who participates in the #SDSpringCleaning Challenge will be entered to win one of three $100 gift cards to shop the next StyleDemocracy Warehouse Sale.
We’ll be saving the entries and will pick three winners on Friday, May 1, 2020. Save the image below to use on your Instagram stories to get your family and friends involved with the cause. We can’t wait to see your donation piles!
