Clothesline has been a national movement since 1985.

Every year, we ask Canadians to keep Clothesline in mind when they’re cleaning and getting rid of gently used clothing, electronics and small household items.

When you donate with Clothesline, everyone wins.

100 per cent of net proceeds raised by Clothesline directly support the Canadian Diabetes Association and world-leading diabetes research, education and advocacy.

Donors feel good knowing their used items are going towards a worthwhile cause and that reusable items are recycled which has a positive effect on the environment.
