Last Wednesday marked the first of what is now going to be an annual event.

A charity clothing swap in NYC to benefit HEART, a non profit that teaches kids about human rights, animal protection and environmental ethics. All the hot topics that Ecorazzi cares about.

The fabulous ladies and gentlemen who came out for the event helped raise over $700 for HEART’s programs! For $10 they came in with items they no longer wanted like shoes, coats, jeans, dresses and jewelry and left with a whole new set of pieces that they loved.  One woman came in with 67 items and left with just as many! The beauty of the swap is you get as much as you bring.

For the bake sale, we had truffles, strawberry rosewater cupcakes, apricot bars, peanut butter rice crispy treats, peanut butter blondies and so many more delectable goodies.

Some stayed for the entire time because, as this blogger said, “Just when I thought I’d seen everything on offer, someone new would walk in with a fresh stash, persuading me to stay a little longer.”

Anything that was left over was given to the Trinity Lower East Side Lutheran Parish, the fantastic church that let us use their space. Nothing was wasted. That’s the beauty of a swap. It’s one of the best and most delightful ways to recycle.

Next year we hope to grow this event and make it even bigger.  A big thank you to everyone who came and who helped promote the event. We couldn’t have done it without you!
