PEDAW Campaign Idea: Clothing Drive!

PEDAW Clothing Drive!

  • Collect used clothing by encouraging participants to donate items that may be in their closet but no longer fit thus having opportunity to provoke discouraging thoughts, unhealthy behaviors or unrealistic goals in order to fit into them again.
  • For a good cause!
  • Increase individual confidence by allowing them to get rid of any clothes in their closet that don't fit and result in discouraging thoughts about their body.
Supplies Needed: 
  • Event flyers
  • Cardboard boxes for donation collection
  • Poster boards explaining the importance of ridding of clothes
  • PEDAW wristbands to give out (available upon request!)
  • Anything else you can think of!
Event Preparation: 
  • Educate the group on the PEDAW campaign including objectives and goals for events. Advertise event at least twice per week prior to collection day using posters, advertisements and other resources most effective for the target community.
  • Reserve a space or location centralized to the target audience
  •  Set up tables and boxes for donation collection.
  • Prepare  handouts, posters and/or other ways to engage participants at the drop off location
Encourage donation of the following: 
  • Clothing that may be too small but one hopes to fit into again
  • Clothing that may be too big that one worries may one day fit again
  • Clothing that just don't fit
Event Main Points: 
  • Keeping clothes in our closets that are too small in hopes that one day they will fit or are too large because of worry that one day they will fit again is damaging to one's self-esteem, confidence and overall body image.
  • Get rid of the clothes that don't fit and work to be comfortable with your body by making healthy choices and focusing on all of the great things about you that are not related to the size of the clothes you wear.
  • Being content with the idea that in order to make room for new things, one must be OK with getting rid of the old things.
  • Explain PEDAW, the wristbands, and what it’s all about.
  • Be creative with how you want to implement this!
  • Take pictures of event and send to Amy to post on up on PEDAW blog!
