How can you turn this
into money for your school for arts, music, and more?
Get ready to clean out those overstuffed closets and piles of outgrown kids clothes for a good cause.
Schoola #PassTheBag Challenge
Remember the ice bucket challenge? This is similar, though less cold and messy and benefits schools (and your closets) in a great way.
How to participate:
- Request a bag from Schoola and they’ll send it quickly, free of charge. Choose the school to benefit or add the school you’d like money to be donated to.
- Fill the bag with gently used clothes: Kids and now they accept women’s clothes as well!
- Send your full bag back to Schoola, also free of charge. Leave it out or schedule your postal carrier to pick it up. Simple!
- Challenge at least 3 friends or family members to do the same by posting on
Facebook or Twitter and using the hashtag #PasstheBag and tagging those friends.
Then go to Schoola and do a little shopping to get your kids ready for warmer weather. And now you can grab something for yourself as well with the new women’s clothing section.
I took the challenge!
She’s so proud that the clothes we no longer need will help a great cause!
We put the bag out for the mail carrier to pick up. It couldn’t have been easier!
I hope you take the challenge and challenge others to #PassTheBag!

Great post! My son isn't of school age yet, but I will check out local schools in my area to see if they have this program!

We had a great experience with Schoola. It's so important for schools to be able to provide art, music, and PE, and we were happy to have a small part in this by sending in some clothes. We've ordered some good stuff from them, too. 🙂
It's so sad that schools don't have the funds to make these important things happen. They are no less important that math and reading and help with understanding both. So great that this company is giving back so much of their profits and it's so easy to be part of it! Glad you've already taken the challenge!

This is a great idea…particularly since I love to donate, but hate that I often collect everything and then it sits in my trunk for months waiting to be dropped off. And alot of times, curb pickup doesn't happen. I'm going to do this and challenge others to #passthebag.
Same here. It either sits in my car or by the front door having still never made it to the car. It was easy to fill the bag with just a few items, too and not feel like I had to overhaul my closets to make it worth while, as I do when I take a trip to the donation center.
