A NEW WAY TO HELP

We have joined forces with Scottish Love in Action (SLA) in India to make it even easier to help have a transformative impact on children’s lives.Read more 156 million children in India live in poverty. Extreme poverty persists in India because economic growth and measures to reduce poverty have bypassed many people.

Since 2000 Scottish Love in Action have helped to give children in India the education, care, life skills and support they need to flourish. They do this by funding and supporting ‘grassroots’ Indian projects that look after, educate and empower vulnerable children.

Through our FREE and simple service, your old stuff is turned into a much needed donation to Scottish Love in Action.

Send us a box full of items and we take care of the rest. Scottish Love in Action receives a sum of money based on the value of the items you send in. The more you send, the more money the charity raises.Show less
about img
India is home to 1 in 3 of the world’s child brides. Girls are forced out of education and into work, child marriage and early childbirth. Things as simple as just getting the bus to school bring the risk of serious abuse and harassment. But give these girls a voice and they can change the world.

A SUSTAINABLE WAY TO HELP

Help Scottish Love in Action and support the education and empowerment of vulnerable children and young people in India. Your donated goods will be promoting a more responsible way of living.

Most of the things people send sit in homes for years and then often end up in landfill. By donating your old items, you’ll be giving them a new home and helping more people buy used, instead of new.

We make sure nothing goes to waste. Every donation is sold, repurposed or recycled. Be a part in fuelling the circular economy and start packing up your box.
