The new year is a great time to clean out your closet and donate outgrown or unwanted items to benefit your school. We’re on track to double the amount of money raised for schools this quarter vs last, and would like to keep the strong momentum going into 2015. We’re asking our community to request a postage prepaid donation bag and #PasstheBag to at least three friends or family members by tagging them on social media. First you donate, then you #PasstheBag!


Here’s how you can participate:

Step 1: Go online to Schoola and request a donation bag.

Step 2: Fill it, and send it in for the benefit of your school. Psst, Schoola is now accepting women’s as well as children’s clothing, so use this as an opportunity to clean out your closet and start the new year off fresh!

Step 3: Challenge at least 3 friends or family members to do the same by posting on Facebook or Twitter and using the hashtag #PasstheBag. Here’s some sample text to make it even easier:

I just requested a donation bag from @Schoola to support my school and now I’m going to #PasstheBag and challenge X, Y and Z! It’s time to clean out your closet and give back—$2 of every $5 spent on Schoola is donated to schools. Let’s do this—request your bag here:

I requested a bag from @Schoola & now I’ll #PasstheBag and challenge X, Y and Z! Donate clothes and give back to schools. Get your bag here!

And if you have pictures to share of you/your family filling a bag or a pile of clothes to donate we’d love to see them so be sure to include them in your social media update!

Step 4: Pat yourself on the back; not only did you request a bag to donate on behalf of your school, but by challenging others you also helped spread the word about the only online marketplace that supports art, music, and P.E. in schools!

The more people who donate, the more your school can raise so please share with everyone you know! Join us in creating momentum around this clean closet #PasstheBag challenge.
