If you live in Kansas City, here is your chance to help others and get a chance to win a great prize! The Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza has teamed up with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Kansas City for “Declutter for Kids.” For every bag of clothing donated, you will be automatically entered to win a FREE Holiday Shopping Package!!
You can clean out your closet to find toys, clothes and more! Just bring your bags or boxes to the hotel, located on the Country Club Plaza (more location information here). These items will be donated to Savers. The money the BBBS receives from this partnership accounts for approximately one-third of its annual budget. That money is then used to help match more waiting kids with caring adult mentors.
Why donate? For every 140 bags donated, BBBS will be able to match one waiting child with a Big Brother, Big Sister, or Big Couple. The Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza hopes to raise more than 3,000 pounds of clothes for BBBS. You can follow the progress on their Facebook Page and via its Twitter account.
“When people donate to DeClutter for Kids, they’re helping children in the Greater Kansas City area who are waiting to be matched up with adults who will make a lifelong impact,” said Brittany Davis, special events for BBBS. “When you donate your clothes, 100% of the money we receive from our partnership with Savers will stay in Kansas City and help kids receive a mentor.”
Donate and Win a Holiday Shopping Package
As part of the DeClutter for Kids initiative, for every kitchen-size garbage bag of clothing donated, donors will be entered to win a Holiday Shopping Package. The Package includes a one-night stay at the hotel, along with a $50 gift card that can be spent anywhere on The Plaza’s 15-block shopping district boasting 150 shops and dozens of fine restaurants. There is no limit on the number of entries from a single donor, so the more bags of clothes donated, the merrier.
So get busy cleaning out your closets! This is such an easy way to help out a great organization!
One reader will receive a Holiday Shopping Package which includes a one-night stay at the hotel along with a $50 Plaza Gift Card!
This contest will be open until December 12, at 11:59 p.m. EST. The winner will be chosen at random and contacted via email to arrange prize fulfillment.
