The Gazelle Skirt is excited to announce its third SWAP event! On the morning of Saturday, January 31st, we will be hosting a clothing SWAP and proceeds will benefit the women’s prisons in Dakar and Rufisque.
All members of our Facebook Group (join here) and their guests.
Our guest of honor is Mme Ndeye Diouf who has volunteered in the prisons for nearly 15 years.
We have also invited our favorite vendors to join us that morning and bring some of their most popular items. More on these to come…
When and where?
The SWAP will be held in Pojnt E from 10am to 1pm on January 31st. For directions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message on Facebook.
How does it work?
Donate women’s clothing items that you no longer want and swap them with others.
- Clothing must be in good condition, clean and folded.
- Shoes, jewelry, handbags and other accessories in good condition may be swapped as well.
- For each item you bring, you will receive one ticket.
- All items ‘cost’ one ticket.
- Any items remaining at the end of the day will be donated to inmates at the women’s prison.
Please note that t-shirts and underwear are not allowed in the SWAP, but if they are in good condition, we happily accept them as donations .
New this year: Due to the growth of this event, clothing must be dropped off at one of the three locations (Point E, Mermoz or Hann Maristes) before January 29th! When you arrive at the SWAP, your ticket will be ready and waiting so you can start shopping right away!
Wow. This sounds amazing. The entry fee is probably like 10,000cfa, right?
No, my friend. Special price for you, nice lady. 😉
Entry for the event is 1,500cfa and proceeds will go towards transporting the clothing to the women’s prisons.
