In this case, you have the opportunity to quickly and easily support social projects and donate the clothes that we can not buy directly to the German Clothing Foundation.
Of course, you still have the option to have the entire package returned at your expense.

For more than 50 years, the German Clothing Foundation has been collecting, sorting and distributing used and new clothing as a non-profit organization. With the donations of clothes and the proceeds from recycling, it supports clothing stores and social projects at home and abroad to help people live in warmth and dignity. – You can find more information about the work of the Deutsche Kleiderstiftung here.
