The ‘New to You’ Second Hand Charity Sale is back again by popular demand for the 2nd year in a row! The date will be Sunday, December 2nd, but more details will come soon.
If you would like to get rid of your clean, used items that are still in great condition, please consider donating them to this charity event.
We are looking for men’s and women’s clothing, such as: shirts, pants, jackets, shoes, dresses, skirts, belts, scarves and also jewelry. We would also like books and English magazines. Othe
r small household items may also be taken.
This year, we are supporting two charities.
One is Happy Home Orphanage in Nepal that Lorena volunteered at this past summer. They are in desperate need of everyday items and funding is crucial. Happy Home now has 60 children who have been rescued from drug addiction and horrible street conditions in their care. They have grown a lot and rescued many children since this video was filmed, and they will continue to help more children as they can afford to. Please check out this short documentary about Happy Home Orphanage:
The second organization is the local, Taipei Women’s Rescue Foundation. The TWRF provides assistance to women and children of domestic violence, female victims of human trafficking and recognition to former Taiwanese comfort women. Please check out their English website:

***** The most important part of The New to You Second Hand Charity sale, the location, has NOT BEEN FINALIZED, so we reach out to you for help. We are in need of an unused apartment or empty office space in central Taipei in which we can access for 1 month in total to sort, organize, prepare for the sale and then re-sort so that we can distribute the leftover items to other local charities in need. Ideally, a space of 25+ pings would be perfect. We hope there is a kind person out there who would offer the space use for free (we can pay for the electricity) as having to pay rent would then come out of the amount of money we would like to donate to the charities. But, we are open for discussion on this. Please help us spread the word!!
The New to You II sale can be really successful with your help.
**Please invite friends to the event, and post it on your Facebook wall.
**Mention it to friends and encourage people to sort through their things and then drop the items off at the mentioned drop off points. (We especially really need clean, quality men's clothes!!)
**Come shopping on the day of the event to buy second hand items for a very low price.
**Offer to volunteer with picking up items, sorting and selling
**DONATE USED CLOTHES, HANGERS, LARGE PAPER SHOPPING BAGS AND CLOTHING RACKS! All these items are needed!
For more information, please contact us in English at:
Thank you so much for your support!**They still need a space for a month to store, sort, and hold the sale. If you know of anywhere they could use, please get in touch!
