Spring cleaning for a cause

As if you needed a reason to love Nordstrom even more, this year they are giving you an incentive to get your spring cleaning done. Thanks to a partnership between Nordstrom and Fashion Project, donating your clothes has never been so rewarding.

The details

So what can you donate? Fashion Project wants quality items (which means the original price you paid for the item must be $50 or more) from this list of brands. Any clothing, accessories, handbags or shoes that you've worn once and shoved to the back of your closet will do. They will then sell those items for you and donate the proceeds to the charity of your choice. What's even better is that Fashion Project sends you a $40 gift card to Nordstrom. Think of it as a karmic reward for all your goodwill to the fashion world.

How to get involved

Fashion Project works hard to make sure your donation is as hassle-free as possible. That's why they've streamlined the process to one easy step. All you have to do is sign up through their website to tell them what charities you'd like to donate to. Next, you'll receive all the shipping materials you need to send in your items. That's right — you don't even have to leave the house (or get out of your pajamas) to do a good deed. As soon as your items have been sold to their new owner, you will be given your Nordstrom gift card and your charity will collect their donation.

For more information, head over to their website and watch the video below. You can also do a little shopping yourself. You'll obviously need some new clothes to fill the void in your closet left over from your donations.
