From recycling clothes every day to holding charity sales,
we love to join up with our customers for a good cause.

From 2015-2017, Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate joined forces across the nation to reach our first-ever combined charity goal. During these years, thousands of Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate customers took part in our Charity Fill-a-Bag Sales. For a flat donation of $15 per bag, shoppers could take home as many items as they could fit into their bag, and 100% of the proceeds went to the charity buildOn. Together we raised over $270,000 for buildOn! We are so grateful to all of those who participated in the Charity Sales and allowed us to build EIGHT schools in seven highly under-served countries: Mali, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Haiti, Nepal, Malawi and Nicaragua.

“We had this question of what to do with all the items we aren’t able to buy,” explained Shauna Sloan, President of Kid to Kid. “We pay cash to our customers for their best items, but if something has a small issue, we have a really hard time selling it. So we asked our customers if they would be willing to donate the items we couldn’t buy, and many of them jumped on board. We were able to offer a huge selection of product that customers could stuff into a bag for just a $15 donation, making it a win for everyone. Our stores donated their labor, space, and product to host the sale, and more than 3,000 of our customers came out and supported this idea of helping improve education in one of the poorest countries in the world.”
