Fashion Project has capitalized on a segment of charitable donations that has been almost completely ignored by every charity in the world: expensive, designer clothing, shoes and accessories.
Because typical donation channels aren't setup to handle high-end items, these items are seldom donated. And when they are, they sell for an average of $0.30 - $0.40 per pound - far, far below what they should generate.
Fashion Project has changed all that. It's an exclusive service where people can donate designer clothing, shoes and accessories to the charity of their choice. Each item is then sold in Fashion Project's online boutique, with approximately 60% of all net proceeds going to the donor's charity.
