Fundraisers for Schools
Our company rescues clothing before it hits the landfills, and pays you for your gently-used kids clothing. We determine where and how often we’d like to collect clothing (suggestion: the office, year-round), and parents drop off any time. Deux Life pays you per pound towards your fundraising goals.
What is Deux Life?
Deux Life is a socially driven startup that saves quality kids clothing from landfills and resells curated wardrobe boxes online — making shopping for children’s clothing easier, more economical, and better for our planet.
Each Deux Life “thrift box” is filled with 10 pieces of clean, brand-name, pre-owned clothing for kids, carefully customized to order by a stylist, and sold online at a fraction of the price of the original retail value.
Why should you help?
Clothing waste makes up 20% of our already over-crowded landfills.
In fact, Americans throw out 81 pounds of clothing each year.
Think donating is better? Goodwill and Salvation Army throw away up to 85% of all clothes they receive — and that number is even higher for kids clothes because these donations are often not worth the time and money it takes to check the quality, price, and hang on a rack.
By partnering with Deux Life, our school will raise important fundraising dollars in exchange for donated clothing that will be re-worn and re-loved by other children, help those in need, and directly reduce the amount of waste that’s clogging our landfills.
What does it look like?
Option A: We will set up a collapsible bin (pictured) inside the school’s office and someone from Deux Life will pick up on a regular cadence.
Option B: We partner one other one-day events (school fairs, parties, BBQs) for single donation days
How do we get paid?
Option A: Deux Life pays the school monthly based on pounds of clothing collected. A rate per pound will be mutually decided.
Option B: Ongoing fee (negotiable) to host ongoing bin in school. Not recommended for first-time partnerships because we can’t determine the maximum potential to be earned
