Not sure what to do with those neon pumps or animal onesie you got from Aunt Jean this Christmas? The Red Cross Shops would love your unwanted presents!
It’s estimated Australians spent up to $630 million on unwanted festive gifts last year, according to research by New Galaxy and Gumtree. That’s 20.6 million presents that could go to waste!
“A lot of us get gifts we don’t really need or want,” says Andre Oosthuizen from the Red Cross retail team. “But this year, don’t ditch your unwanted presents. Instead, re-gift them to a Red Cross shop.
“Maybe you received clothing that doesn’t fit right, or homewares you don’t have room for. Maybe a Hillary-inspired pantsuit isn’t to your taste, but someone else might love it.
“When you donate your unwanted clothing, accessories, books and homewares, Red Cross can sell them to raise money for our vital support services, helping people in need around Australia and overseas.
“It’s an easy way to make the Christmas cheer spread that little bit further.”
Red Cross has a network of over 150 stores in every Australian state and territory. Donations can be brought into any Red Cross shop.
Unfortunately The Red Cross regretfully can’t accept donations of mattresses, electrical goods or clothing with stains or damage.
