Donating with Purpose

Minimalist organizing is about being intentional with our time and things-- even the things that no longer serve us. There's great satisfaction in knowing our unwanted items are helping those in need. By taking a moment to recognize the needs of our communities, we can deeply impact the lives of others. Here's a list of organizations that will make good use out of your unwanted items.

BABY ITEMS, TOILETRIES, ETHNIC HAIR CARE

YARN, FABRIC, SEWING RELATED

At Tinystiches they provide handmade blankets and clothing to newborn babies who's parents can't provide for them.

FORMAL WEAR

The Enchanted Closet® was formed as a community service project to outfit disadvantaged girls for their prom. The working philosophy was that no high school girl should miss this rite of passage because she could not afford a dress.
