We had a clothing swap on October 5th and there was a great turnout!! Over 30 people came and brought clothes that they were ready to let go of. Much to our surprise, there were even a few men and we actually had a well-stocked men’s section! All participants were happy to let go of their old clothes and to adopt new ones. Everyone was interested in swapping regularly; we will do it again soon! It was inspiring to share in this way and there was such a warm feeling of community and hope. Together, we can move towards a more sustainable way of life!
Everyone was also happy with tea and refreshments. Leftover clothes were bagged and donated to local DTES charities. It took hours since there was so much clothing–such abundance!!

We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it. And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.
