Solidarity Swap Soiree
The ultimate Holiday Shopping Event! A swap of all things! Clothing, Gifts, Decor, Toys, etc. Benefitting Helping Hands Against Violence.
Our closets are overflowing with awesome clothes that no longer bring us joy, accessories bought on a whim, shoes that have only been worn once (or sometimes twice), so much feminist swag, kids clothes, toys, books and decor and all this has much more life left.
Let’s put those items to use, be green, save some green, and give some green! This is not only an opportunity to swap for some new-to-you things; it’s a chance to stand in solidarity with victims of domestic violence. All proceeds from the event will go to Helping Hands Against Violence and offering a multitude of amazing services in Oregon.
How it works:
Entry is $10.
Empty your closets of unwanted items that are gently, barely or never used (clothes, dressy scarves, outerwear, shoes, costume jewelry, sunglasses and purses) and bring them to Chalk School of Movement on November 22nd or 23rd between 10am & 8pm to get your “golden ticket” that allows you to take unlimited items at the swap the next day.
A massive amount of clothing will be available during the exchange and volunteers will arrange it into our fabulous swap boutique. The swap is from 5pm-8pm on (Black) Friday, November 26th: come at any time and stay as long as you wish. It should be a fun party the whole time!
If you bring clothes on the days of the exchange, you may take as many items as you brought, in addition to the complimentary 10 items with your ticket. Additional items $1. Dressing rooms will be available to try things on.
At the end of the swap leftover items will be donated to various community groups including those serving teens in need and LGBTQ youth, also rural career closets, prom programs, refugee and immigrant groups, domestic violence shelters If your group would like to partner with us and leftover donated items please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The full, fluid and beautiful range of gender presentations are welcome at this swap! We work hard to make sure that everyone is comfortable attending and participating as who they are. All adult clothing is welcome and available!
