Been holding onto that DKNY dress, those J Brand jeans, or that AllSaints sweater that you haven’t worn for far too long now? Is that BCBG gown from prom just taking up room in the back of your closet now? We know how hard it is to get rid of designer pieces, no matter how long it’s been since they’ve seen the light of day. Not only is it a sentimental parting, but having spent good money on the item, you want it to go somewhere where its quality and design will continue to be appreciated.

Just in time for spring cleaning, Project Fashion, the premier online clothing, shoes and accessories donation service, brings you the solution you’ve been looking for. For every five items donated to Project Fashion from their qualifying brand list, Nordstrom will be offering shoppers a $40 gift card. The proceeds from the resale of your items will go to benefit a charity of your choice. Here’s how it works: Check out what designers they’re looking for here, sign up for the project, send in your items, and choose which charity you’d like to support.

“This partnership with FashionProject.com is a fantastic opportunity for our customers because it makes it easy for them to give back to their favorite community organizations and update their wardrobe, all at the same time,” said Brian Dennehy, Nordstrom chief marketing officer. “Supporting our communities has always been important to us at Nordstrom, and we know that it means a lot to our customers as well. We’re excited to partner with FashionProject.com and give our customers a new way to lend their support to those organizations that matter most to them by simply cleaning out their closets.”

Out with the old, in with the new–and all for a good cause. We know what we’ll be doing this weekend!
