Join Uptown Cheapskate and Kid to Kid in their quest to build schools around the world! Because of our awesome customers, our team as so far funded the building of FIVE schools around the world in Mali, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Nicaragua, and Haiti. And we want to keep going! Our next goal is to build a school in Malawi, plus fund under-priviledged inner-city American students to volunteer in their local communities and in turn receive sponsorship to aid in building these schools abroad.
Here's how YOU can be a part of this awesome cause: Sell your stuff: Sell your outgrown kids' stuff or fashionable clothes to a participting Kid to Kid or Uptown Cheapskate store during October and early November 2016. You'll earn cash for the things the store buys. If the store can't buy some of your items based on their normal buying criteria, they'll ask you if you want to donate the items to a Charity Fill a Bag Sale. Then, when the time comes, shop our Charity Fill a Bag sale at participating Uptown Cheapskate and Kid to Kid locations, where you'll be given a bag that you can stuff with as many sale items as you can fit for just $15. You'll also get a coupon for 15% off the rest of the store! If you donated product to the sale, you'll get a bag for $10 instead. We'll donate 100% of the proceeds from this sale to buildOn to reach our goal of buildling two more schools this year. By shopping and selling at Uptown Cheapskate and Kid to Kid, you're contribtuing to a better environment, supporting local business, finding great style at low prices, saving/earning money for yourself, and now you're giving an education to children to transform stuggling villages around the world. Want to help? Support buildOn by making a donation to our team or attending one of our fundraiser sale events. The process is fast, easy, and secure... and you can be sure that it will benefit a great cause!
