The Gazelle Skirt is excited to announce its 7th SWAP event! On the morning of Saturday, January 19th, 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 more than 15 years.
When and where?
The SWAP will be held in Point E from 10am to 1pm on January 19th. For directions, see our Facebook event.
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 detainees 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 .
Due to the growth of this event, clothing must be dropped off at one of the three locations (Mermoz, Almadies or Hann Maristes) BEFORE January 12th! Drop-off dates and times will be announced on our Facebook page. If you choose to drop off clothing at a time outside of those specified, you may send your clothing via our coursier (3000 cfa flat rate). Contact us for the address details and to set this up.
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 2000cfa and proceeds will go towards expenses and transporting the clothing to the women’s prisons.
