WHEN DO WE COLLECT?

We will collect from Dubai EVERY MONDAY during the day, but alternate locations.

 

WHERE DO WE COLLECT FROM?

We collect in Dubai.

If you are outside of Dubai, you can arrange to send us your items.

 

WHAT DO WE COLLECT?
Due to storage constraints until markets open back up, we only accept clothing, shoes, bags, fashion accessories, and books. If you have other items that are in good condition and high value, please let us know. We will soon be accepting everything.

For children's toys, we recommend Toys with Wings.

For towels and blankets, we recommend animal shelters, such as Animals & Us.

For electronics, we recommend Enviroserve.

For furniture, large appliances and housewares, we recommend Take My Junk for this, although they do not have a charitable purpose.

If you know any resellers that might be interested in storing/selling on our behalf for a commission, please let us know!

 

WHY DECLUTTER?

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.

 

WHAT DO YOU DO WITH MY ITEMS?

Please see the image at the bottom of this page. We will start by sorting them into categories and prices and then, based on value and condition, decide what to sell online, at market, in bulk through our partner resellers, or donate on to good causes. To the best of our ability, we repair/upcycle damaged items through our #patched initiative or we recycle through our partners, such as Enviroserve.

We will endeavour to sell your items for the highest possible price online, at markets, events and to resellers.

 

WE DONATE DONATE OUR PROFITS TO Gulf for Good, helping children around the world.

 

WHAT ABOUT UAE FUNDRAISING APPROVALS? IS THIS LEGAL?

Yes, this initiative is approved under the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department, license number 3072.

 

CAN WE DO A GROUP COLLECTION DRIVE?

We welcome group collection drives. Please give us a heads up so we can ensure we have enough storage space and can arrange the proper legal approvals. We will issue you a receipt of estimated value and will raise funds for your chosen charity of choice (requires separate fundraising approval, which we will organise).
