Why I love Cerebral Palsy and Diabetes — the organisations

Why did I capitalise “cerebral palsy” and “diabetes”?  I love the organisations, of course, not the medical conditions.

The Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy (CP) and the Canadian Diabetes Association (http://www.diabetes.ca/get-involved/supporting-us/clothesline/howto/ ) rock.

Both organisations seem to run the same program:  their trucks drive to my neighbourhood, pick up gently used clothing and various unwanted household items, and sell them to a second-hand shop.  This generates revenue for the charity and takes junk off my hands.   Awesome.

Sometimes I drop stuff off directly at Value Village or the Salvation Army, but sometimes I don’t get around to it, and CP calls every few months so I set stuff out on my front step and they make it disappear.  Like magic.  Awesome.

Where do you donate your superfluous stuff?
