Selfies for Kids is Positively Kids’ new fundraiser to help increase clothing donations at the non-profit’s more than 125 clothing donation bins located throughout the Las Vegas valley.
85% of used clothing and textiles end up in landfills each year, amounting to 21 billion pounds of textiles that could have been recycled. To help get more clothing out of landfills and into its own clothing donation bins, Selfies for Kids will encourage individuals to snap a selfie photo of themselves while donating their used clothing and small household appliances at a Positively Kids clothing donation bin and posting it on the nonprofit’s Facebook page; https://www.facebook.com/positivelykids anytime during the month of June.
The individual with the most “likes” on their “selfie” post by June 30 will win $1,000. The Selfies for Kids campaign aims to ramp up donations throughout spring and summer months, as levels typically decrease. Proceeds from Foundation for Positively Kids’ clothing donation bins benefit programs and services for medically fragile and special needs children in Clark County.
