From a Mother to Another, the charity initiative from JoJo Maman Bebe is back again. Between now and 5th March 2016 JoJo Maman Bebe will be collecting clothing to go to families in need in the UK, via the Trussell Trust's food banks, as well as to Syrian refugees living in Lebanon. You can get a £5 voucher for every two or more outfits that you donate as well. Read on to find out how you can help.
Did you know that every year nearly a third of the UK's clothing ends up in landfill? That's a shocking 350,000 tonnes a year! By extending the lifespan of clothes by just three months this reduces carbon and water waste by up to 10% a year. And donating your children's outgrown clothes could make the world of difference to vulnderable families here in the UK and displaced Syrians in Lebanon.
So how can you help? It's really easy. Simply make up two or more complete outfits from your children's outgrown clothes in sizes 0-6 years. Make sure they are clean and would be an outfit that you would be proud to see your own child wearing! Place the outfit in a clear plastic bag and label with the size/sex/season, for example 0-3 months/boy/winter. Then deliver to any of the 72 JoJo Maman Bebe stores before 5th March 2016.
As a thank you JoJo Maman Bebe are offering a £5 voucher for when two or more outfits are donated to a store, you can get one voucher per customer and it will be valid against a £35 minimum spend.
JoJo Maman Bebe will then take care of the outfits, from double checking them and adding extra items if needed, packaging them in lovely gift bags, and organising delivery to their charity partners to send on to the families in need.
I'm really proud to be helping to spread the word about this campaign. Donating clothes that are no longer needed is a great way to help disadvantaged children and will stop so many clothes ending up in landfill.
