Q: Used clothes: Where to donate them ?

Do you have any idea about how and where to donate used clothes in China?. I have a lot of clothes which I can't carry in my suitcase and I am not willing to dump them. I asked my Chinese friends and I got many "I don't know" answers.

I put my new, custom made, too small shirts and shoes from Shanghai Silk Market close to the garbage bin, and somebody pick it up few weeks ago.

 

I guess, it was the same person, who's collecting empty bottles and cardboard boxes.

 

I asked my Chinese friends about 'used clothes donation', butt...nobody knows anything about it.

hmmm,,,  it's easy in Manila.  anything I do not want/need anymore, you just leave it at the corner. it'll be put to use. sometimes bring the extra stuff we acquire and leave it next to those sleeping on the sidewalk. it'll get used.

friend of mine carried a zip-lock baggie,, she kept all left-overs from restaurants and fed the street catz.  pretty cool.  I did the same,,, just pack left-overs best u can and give it to the street-kids,,  their appreciativeness will warm even the coldest heart.  funny how a handful of cold rice can mean so much to a person.....

I do about the same as icnif77 and diverdude4. I put unwanted but useful things in a separate, preferably clear bag next to the garbage. Someone will use it. Clothes, the shoes I bought that don't fit (haha), anything.

Old t-shirts have turned into cloths for wiping down surfaces, shoes go into the rubbish and all other clothes are left in a plastic bag by the rubbish dumps. One of the many people who rummage through the rubbish will surely take the bag away and make good use of it.

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
