COLLECTION BY THRIFT FOR GOOD VOLUNTEERS
If you cannot make it to store, we have set aside days where volunteers will come to you to collect your donations. Please fill in the form here to choose your day for us to visit - you can kindly leave your items outside of your door should you not be home.
DOING A CORPORATE DRIVE?
First, thank you. We can offer you an impact certificate against this. For coordination, please be in touch with Jade on firstname.lastname@example.org / 058 572 6686
HOW DO I PREPARE MY CONTRIBUTIONS?
It is very helpful if you could please wash and fold your items.
Also, if you have end of life textiles that need recycling, it helps our sorting volunteers if you put these in a separate labelled bag. This way, you can keep your dirty holey socks out of landfill without our people going through them.
You would help us greatly by also including a note with any high value items or if contributing a luxury item (whether it is authentic or inauthentic).
Thank you so much for your incredible support!
You can now help TFG by giving your unwanted furniture in collaboration with Think Upcycle.
For TOYS, we recommend www.myecosouk.com. Also, you can try birthday bliss or Hope Amel UAE on Facebook.
For ELECTRONICS we recommend Enviroserve.
WHERE DO WE COLLECT FROM?
We collect in Dubai.
If you are outside of Dubai, you can arrange to send us your items.
Decluttering can bring you a sense of peace and joy, especially when it benefits a good cause. We recommend checking out the KonMari method for this life changing process.
OUR WORK SUPPORTS Gulf for Good, helping children around the world (IACAD approved PRHCE-000040519). We donate 100% of the profits from reselling your items to their children's charity projects.
DO YOU BUY THE ITEMS?
In exchange for all of your items (a bag or more), we provide you with a gift certificate for AED10 for our physical and online store.
Should you want cash for your items, we recommend the following resellers:
C) Imperfect condition and can't be fixed/not worth fixing - we take these items to the weekly flea markets in Zabeel Park, Al Barsha Pond Park, Ibn Battuta etc and sell the items for AED5/piece. We also respond to local requests for clothing donations with this stock.
D) Condition is unsellable - Our partner, Kiswa, kindly buy these from us at AED2/kg and recycles them into furniture in Turkey.
E) Luxury - regardless of the condition, we do our best to authenticate internally, repair and sell for a seventh of the price new in store and online.
We send items we cannot authenticate to The Luxury Closet to sell through their portal.
Items that are returned as inauthentic are sold at flea markets.
F) High value jewellery and watches - Clara in Gold & Diamond Park kindly sponsor the authentication and valuing of jewellery. We price our items below market rate but always more than the value of gold/silver/diamonds in the piece.
Max&Max in Times Square Center kindly sponsor new battery watches for us.
