Donating to Charity
Support worthwhile causes and the circular economy
Papillonkia originally set out to support the circular economy by becoming a trusted place to buy and sell preloved luxury designer fashion accessories.
We’re growing and we believe that now more than ever it’s important to support other great causes too so we’re giving you the opportunity to raise money for worthwhile charities.
Papillonkia provides a brilliant platform for designer-lovers to release cash by reselling luxury fashion handbags, clothing and accessories. We also recognise that many people have pieces that they no longer need, but they don’t know what to do with them and they don’t necessarily want to exchange their items for money. We believe that supporting charities and worthwhile causes is the answer.
With that in mind, Papillonkia has teamed up with various charities either individually or through Work for Good. If you have luxury fashion accessories that you no longer need, we want to offer you the chance to donate the proceeds of your preloved pieces to some great causes.
Whether you are selling or consigning a piece to us, you can choose to donate up to 100% of the proceeds you would otherwise receive to any of our chosen charities. What’s more, if you would like to donate to another charity, just let us know and we will arrange everything for you. Just send us your pieces and we will do everything for you safely and securely, we’re trusted too by thousands who use our service every week.
