Donating Cycling clothing to 3rd World Countries???(5 posts)

Donating Cycling clothing to 3rd World Countries???neo
Dec 21, 2002 9:26 AM
I have some barely used jerseysthat have accumulated throughout the years that are only taking up space now that I would like to donate. Awhile back, one of the trade magazines ran an article about how countries in Africa and Asia have cycling programs that cannot afford stuff like jerseys. I thought it would be better to donate my clothes to these countries rather than drop it off at Goodwill, where they probably wouldn't know what to do with it.

Does anyone have any info on where I can send the clothes for donation?? TIA.

Goodwill knows what to do with it.It goes on a rack and gets bought by needy US cyclists.

A lot of the Tours in Africa/Middleeast are sponsored by the Tour De France group. Try the Le Tour website. I'm sure there's a way to contact them.

Make sure non of the jerseys have a USA flag or words on them. Sure way to get shot somewhere other than the states.

Woof, the politically correct dog.
