YOU DON'T HAVE TO OPEN YOUR WALLET TO HELP OTHERS, JUST LOOK AROUND YOU!

BIKES - Have you ever noticed when there is a junk collection in your area that there are dozens of bikes laying sadly on the verge or on a heap?

BOOKS - SAVE THE CHILDREN hold at least one Massive book sale every year, supported by the donations of second hand books from families all across Perth. Books in decent condition can be dropped all year round at the depot -

SPORTS EQUIPMENT
- When was the last time you used your golf clubs, cricket bat......
all used sports equipment in functional and clean condition can be dropped off to numerous locations.
FAIR GAME has a wish list of desperately needed equipment, larger equipment will be collected.

SHOES - Did you know that in Australia 15 million pairs of shoes end up in landfill each year - shoes can take up to 1,000 years to decompose in landfill.
Why not donate your used but still good shoes to RESHOE, a charity that sends shoes to developing countries and helps set up small businesses to sell the shoes at affordable prices to locals. Being able to afford shoes , means that millions of people can then avoid disease and parasites.
Call the Running Centre 1/1273 Hay Street, West Perth (93242707)

MOBILE PHONES - We all have one or more mobile phones laying dormant. Collect them up, you could save a GORILLA.

Drop off your old glasses to any Laubman & Pank, OPSM, Sunglass Hut or Budget Eyewear.

BRAS - Too small, too big, not needed nursing bras or whatever! Dig these out of the drawer and send them to PROJECT UPLIFT.
Right on our doorstep, in some parts of Australia, not just Third World Countries, a bra is an unobtainable luxury.
