Fundraising for Haiti with DDA

With another major aftershock of 6.1 in Haiti this morning, and an ever increasing death toll, a few friends of mine decided to start a fundraising group for Haiti. We’ll be taking advantage of the Developmental Disabilities Association, Cash 4 Clothes program, to raise funds for the Haiti victims.  Cash 4 Clothes, in a nutshell, works like this:

  • Collect a minimum of 75 full bags of clothes and up to 150 full bags at one time, and DDA gives you $2.00 per bag
  • If you collect over 151 full bags at one time, DDA gives you $3.00 per bag
  • DDA will pick up all the bags after the clothing drive has been completed

Our goal is to reach $1000 for Haiti. All the money we raise from collecting bags of clothes and donating them to DDA will go directly to helping Haiti. The benefits of Cash 4 Clothes will be helping two charitable and important causes: locally, the Developmental Disabilities Association; and internationally, with the people in Haiti.

If you would like to help out with this fundraiser, you can drop by DDA’s Head Office with your bags of clothes and/or housewares. Simply leave them with the receptionist and let her know the bags are for Victor. You can also start your own fundraising group for Haiti (or for any other cause, organization, or sports team that needs money) through our Cash 4 Clothes program.

Update: I was just informed that Savers/Value Village, where DDA sells their used goods, will be delivering trailers of used clothing, bed, bath and shoes to the areas in need at Haiti!

    Hey there, I just have a question about the funds for this initiative; will it be solely going to Haiti (“All the money we raise from collecting bags of clothes and donating them to DDA will go directly to helping Haiti.”), or to Haiti and the DDA (“The benefits of Cash 4 Clothes will be helping two charitable and important causes: locally, the Developmental Disabilities Association; and internationally, with the people in Haiti.”) ??

    Thanks 🙂

  3. All the money we collect from this personal initiative will be donated through a friend of mine who works for HSBC (who has a matching contribution program for donations towards helping Haiti). The clothes collected will be helping DDA, but all the money we collect from the clothes (this is a personal fundraising initiative) will go towards Haiti. Thanks! And I hoped that answers your question.

  4. Besides donating my own money to Haiti, I will continue to pray for them. Lifting everything up to Heaven for them.
