We've been shortlisted for 2 Digital Experience Awards

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

We’re very happy to hear that our website for Clothes for Charity has been shortlisted for not one, but two categories in the UK Digital Experience Awards 2014:

  • Charity/Not-for-Profit
  • Best Internal Use of Digital

The UK Digital Experience Awards aim to “recognise and celebrate the delivery of exceptional customer experience through digital channels and media across a broad spectrum of industries”. Exceptional customer experience, you say? We like the sound of that.

Clothes for Charity is a Leeds-based startup that lets people send unwanted clothes safely to a charity of their choice. It’s secure and trackable, so avoids all the dangers of normal doorstep donation (people nicking your bag, for example), and is ideal for charities who don’t have shops, or people who can’t get to them.

We’ve built the site to make it super-easy to choose a charity to donate to (from over 100, which we’ve categorised to make it simpler), arrange a collection (through smart integration with UPS’s backend systems), and find out what’s happening with your donation (automated notices remind you to send your bag back, let you know when it’s arrived, and help you track how much you’ve given to date).

We’ll be presenting our work to a team of specialist Judges at The Grand Connaught Rooms in London on 9th July 2014 – keep your fingers crossed for us.
