Purging your closet may be perched atop your list of things to do as 2019 opens, so why not lend a helping hand and so the big cleanup? Here's where to begin: we've rounded up four noble-hearted charities that'll give new purpose to the clothes you no longer use.
Life's a cycle of give and take, something the H&M F oundation stands by. Get a 15% discount voucher for every bag of clothes you leave at any of their participating branches! For every kilo of threads you donate, H&M will also give €0.02 (P1) to a local charity.
Goodwill Industries of the Philippines
