SAN FRANCISCO — Raise your hand if you’re always on the lookout for a really good fashion find? Well, what if we told you there’s a way you can buy designer brands and donate to charity at the same time?
Co-founder of Union & Fifth Christena Reinhard has found a way to combine philanthropy and fashion.
The web-based business offers e-shoppers a chance to rack up discounted couture — 75% of each sale given to a charity picked by the donor.
“We raise money for charity by reselling donated designer women’s clothes, and we’re the first ones to do it acting as a non-profit,” Reinhard said.
So, if you’re cleaning out your closet for the winter the Union & Fifth shopping experience is a breeze!
“It’s super easy. You go online you go to our website“, Reinhard explained. “We will ship you a plastic bag that’s got the UPS label already paid for. You stick your stuff in the bag and hand it to someone at UPS, and we’ll do the rest!”
They’ll even offer a 100% tax write-off to anyone willing to donate their duds!
Now, you won’t have to feel so guilty about splurging on Chanel, if it’s all for a good cause.
