Take Off Your Clothes!

Well…maybe not literally. But here’s a fun (CHARITY!) event to get rid of the clothes that you’re kind of bored of and trade them for new ones – well new to your wardrobe! “Take Off Your Clothes” is a giant clothing swap for charity organized by the SWAP team, a non-profit social enterprise run entirely by volunteers!

Now back in July, the SWAP team organized this event and it was immensely successful. It was such a success that it just had to be done again! Thus the “Take Off Your Clothes – Concordia University Edition” is taking place this Wednesday September 19th, from 1-5pm! You have less than 20 hours to buy your advance tickets! GO GO GO! If not, you can still buy door tickets!

How it works is that on the day of the SWAP event, you bring a bag of clothes you would like to give away. Any accepted item which must be clean and undamaged, earns you 1 exchange coupon, valid for an item at the swap.

We will also be at the event as official fashion consultants. We can offer you advice on how you can style the newly swapped item of clothing, answer any style questions you may have, or even if you just feel like chatting with us!

Here’s just a little tidbit, the SWAP Team was founded in 2007 and has since branched out to different cities. The current chapters are in Montreal, Boston, NYC, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, Halifax, Winnipeg, Northampton (MA) and Quebec City. I can guarantee that it won’t stop there!
