CONTRIBUTING HAS REWARDING BENEFITS

  • COMMUNITY: The event brings together diverse contributors, artisans, volunteers, and do-it-yourself types, under a common idea that lasts well after the event is completed.
  • SUSTAINABILITY: Help break the cycle of throwaway through creative re-use.
  • GIVING: Your contribution to this non-profit event is tax deductible. Left over clothing will be donated to our community partner, the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange.
  • RECOGNITION: There is no commerce inside the walls of a SORR, but we are glad to recognize your business in all awareness materials.

Want to support Swap-O-Rama-Rama? Send us an email. Please provide your name, your company name (if applicable), and contact information, as well as the specifics of what you’re interested in contributing. Donations are tax deductible! And none are too small to make a difference.
