The first PCU Clothes Swap and Charity Drive is here! In keeping with our sustainability initiatives and aligning with this year's annual theme #BeTheChange, we'd like to do a small part by encouraging an alternative approach to updating your wardrobes while also giving to a good cause.

What is the PCU Clothes Swap?
For the PCU Clothing Swap, students, lecturers and staff can bring in clothes they no longer want and switch them for clothes that other people have brought in! Tables and racks will be set up in the Student Lounge for everyone to browse (from 11:00 - 15:00). Towards the end of the event (15:00-18:00), we'll have guest speakers from Moment, #BeTheChange, and more, followed by music and refreshments!
- You can bring clothes on the day of the event, or leave items at reception throughout the whole week.
- You can just donate - you do not have to swap clothes if you don't want to.
In addition to the Swap you can also look forward to:
- Hot cocoa, baked goods, and mulled wine
- How-to activities throughout the day
- Guest speakers
- Music and a pleasant atmosphere!
Moment Second-hand Charity Shop
All of the remaining clothes will be donated to Moment, our charity partner. They are a nonprofit organization that is located in Vinohrady, very close to the Polská campus. The clothes that we donate will be sold in their stores where the profit goes to one of their charity projects.
The last time we cooperated with Moment on a clothing drive, we were able to donate 11kg of clothes!
Moment was born out of a need to meaningfully and freely fund the nonprofit sector. Inspired by English charities, Moment has a community-based culture where people routinely donate their surpluses to the needy. They are a non-profit organisation that collects donations, sells them, and supports other non-profits from the profit from their sales.
