+++Proceeds will benefit Kids Help Phone
All leftover clothing will be donated to The Salvation Army with monetary proceeds benefitting Kids Help Phone.
We do not accept:
Bathrobes, pyjamas, t-shirts, underwear, lingerie, swimwear, tank tops, socks, leggings or stockings. Likewise, we do not issue exchange tickets for ripped, faded, torn, stained, scratched, dirty, frayed, missing buttons, broken zippers or otherwise worn/damaged items. Items received that fail to meet these standards will be donated to The Salvation Army for recycling.
Laundering policy strictly enforced
As a courtesy to fellow swappers, please wash all clothing items you'd like to swap in hot water and dry on high for a minimum of 20 minutes (or: have them dry cleaned and keep them in the original plastic covering with a knot on the bottom). When the laundering cycles are complete, the clean laundry should be placed in new, clear garbage bags and sealed. We inspect everything that comes in and reserve the right to reject any item or bag of clothing that does NOT appear to comply with our policy.
Can't come to the event but want to support our cause with some donated clothing? Download this label, print/fill it out, attach it to each bag of clothing and drop off your clothing at one of our drop off locations.
Get your clothes ready, Winnipeg - it's SWAP time! Sharing is good!

We're The SWAP Team, a nonprofit social enterprise based in Montreal, Canada run by volunteers. Pioneers of the clothing swap trend, our popular event Take Off Your Clothes has excited audiences since 2007. Our many chapters have hosted events in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Ottawa, Boston, MA, Winnipeg and New York City.

To date, we've swapped over 46,000 garments, donated over 48,000 garments to charities and diverted a whopping 94,000 garments from landfills. Best of all, we've helped people save a million dollars simply by swapping instead of shopping!
