Q: Are there any Charities that accept unwanted clothes (and other stuff) in Guangzhou?

As I am preparing to leave Guangzhou and China I am wondering if there are any places in or around Guangzhou that might accept unwanted clothes. The same might go for other unwanted stuff such as notepads, books (possibly) and accessories. Just don't want to throw these things away really.

Try finding a church, some of them redistribute used stuff (and some probably don't always do so only to the needy)

 

Alternatively, throw it in the dumpster, someone will take it. If I throw away something that I find to be still functional, I will always put it next to one of the outdoors trashcans, maybe in a plastic bag depending on what it is and weather, and without fail, it will be gone 30-60 mins later. For me it is just as much about things not being wasted than helping. E.g. the woman cleaning our building is using a pair of my wifes old sunglasses as they were placed (for her) by a trashcan inside the building, where not a lot of people pass except the 3 neighbors.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
