Swap is definitely the new Shop! Especially here at Constant Contact!
A couple weeks ago, Marilyn from Custom Services and myself put on a Clothing Swap here. We hung up flyers and used our Event Marketing product to invite coworkers to clean out their closets! Which, they did!
We had tons of clothing donated to us from everyone here at Constant Contact! Our plan was to have a Swap with the clothes that were donated. Then to take the leftover clothes and donate them to 2 nonprofits, Solutions At Work and Dress for Success.
Dress for Success, Worcester chapter, helps women with business attire for interviews. We donated 2 HUGE bags as well as the monetary donations. Solutions at Work is in Cambridge and helps the homeless get back on their feet. We have over 11 bags to donate to them!
We gave away swag bags, shown above, that were full of goodies. Handmade jewelry from Fascinations by Rachel, Scentsy by Kimee samples, and bags of Pretzel Crisps! The swag bags were donated to us from the Swapoholics of Swap.com. The event was so much fun and we even used our Event Marketing product to send out invitations and checked people in using the Event iPhone App.
It was a great success and lots of people will get new to them clothes! We had a lot of fun swapping and just knowing that we have so much to donate tells us just how great our Swap was!
We even had some yummy cupcakes to eat while we swapped!
