Twitter Gave Maisie Williams Some Very Good Advice About Where to Donate Her Old Clothes

Christmas is a time for giving, and Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams is on a mission to give away whatever clothes international TV stars give away when they’re done with them. You might be in the same boat, ready to donate some of those summer clothes you’re packing up to your closest Goodwill. But wait: Williams reached out to Twitter about where she should take her clothes and got some good advice that’s worth all our time.

A few people correctly noted that there’s a lot more impact to be made in selling your clothes and donating the money to charities. The truth is, a lot of secondhand clothing stores already have more clothes than they know what to do with. It’s even worse overseas. A few African countries have actually banned secondhand clothing from foreign distributors. Why? Because cheap, secondhand clothing is ruining local startups that are trying to sell handmade clothes.

So, Williams’ Twitter fans reasoned, why not just sell your clothes (celebrity threads can fetch some crazy prices on various fashion sites) and send the money to a charity?

Williams agreed, announcing a plan to divvy up her clothes and give them away wherever they’ll do the most good. It’s a thoughtful way of giving away that will only take a little more time than stuffing them all in a trash bag to drop off at your local Goodwill.
