    Donating to baby charity

    I have lots of baby clothes, some new and some worn but in good condition which I'd like to donate to a charity. I live in Midlevels so somewhere close by or a charity that can arrange pick up is ideal as I'm heavily pregnant at the mo. I know this has been covered before but in quite an old thread so I'd like to find out about current options. (i.e. Christian Action is suggested in the previous thread but their new website implies they only accept monetary donations now.)
    Many thanks,

    Mother's Choice is also in the Mid-levels and they may need clothes.

    I called Mother's Choice and the woman I spoke to couldn't advise as to whether or not they take donations. She said somebody would call back (this was last Wed) but I've not heard back. Wanchai is a bit difficult for me to get to at the mo, lugging around lots of charity bags with my girl in tow!

    I have been donating all old clothes to Friends of the Earth. They have collection bins in a lot of apartment buildings.

    The salvation army have a donation box at the Bamboo Grove residence - It's on Kennedy Road number 74-82 you cant miss it, just drive up to the entrance level and ask one of the security men where the box is, unload and head out again, it's super easy!

    If you would like to donate to International Care Ministries, a charity whose aim is to help the poorest of the poor in the Philippines, I would be happy to collect the clothes and deliver them to the ICM office in Wanchai.

    International Care Ministries ::: Releasing the poorest of the poor in the Philippines

    Let me know.

    All best
