Repurposing seventeen large bins of mixed new clothing donated by Big W. This is typical of the great clothing donations received from many of Australia’s leading companies who trust Rotary through Donations In Kind to repurpose their goods in a way that complies with any distribution restrictions.   Without DIK the clothes would probably have to be destroyed.

DIK can only repurpose clothes if someone provides the money to ship them and it only costs $??? To ship a typical carton with your Clubs name on the label.  50 cents to fully clothe a baby, 10 cents to send a new T Shirt.

Donations can be made directly into the DIK bank account and tax deductibility may be available if required.

Helping to pack the goods could be your Clubs next Community or Environmental Sustainability Project.  Subsidising the freight cost is an easy and very effective International Project.
