Make Your Unwanted Gifts Count This Christmas

HALESOWEN, England, December 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

With the festive period now in full swing, Christmas is a time for giving and West Midlands based CASH-CLOTHES is giving you the opportunity to turn your unwanted Christmas clothes, shoes, bags, CDs and DVDs into cash, while simultaneously providing much needed support to those less fortunate in the developing world.

The brainchild of founder John Sharpe, CASH-CLOTHES offers a humanitarian and environmentally sensitive service, which could see you start the New Year with a few extra pounds in your pocket.

Whether you are an individual looking to clear some much needed space in your wardrobe, or find a happy home for that ghastly Christmas jumper, a company that wishes to sell its goods wholesale, or a Public Sector organisation, CASH-CLOTHES offers a free service that is both fast and efficient.

Stress free

Here at CASH-CLOTHES, we focus all our attention on making the whole experience as convenient as possible for our customers. Simply log onto our website (http://www.cash-clothes.co.uk) to request a free collection or give us a call. We will arrange a time and date for collection that suits you and upon arrival, our driver will collect your bags and hand you your cash payment.

It really couldn't be any simpler to get cash for clothes. All you need to do is get in touch and then start thinking about how you are going to spend that extra money in the New Year.

What do we do with your clothes?

That's a great question.

By using our service, not only will you free up some much needed space in your home or place of business, but you can sleep soundly in the knowledge that you have helped to improve the lives of those living in abject poverty, as well as the environment.

The clothes which you pass onto us, that are still in wearable condition, are shipped directly to countries whose people are living in poverty and who will greatly appreciate your kindness and generosity.

For those items which are dowdy or damaged irreparably, their destiny lies elsewhere. These items, rather than being sent to already methane-rich landfill sites, will find their way to either a fibre reclamation mill to be repurposed into new clothing or another usable textile, or will be reused to create rags for a variety of different industries for cleaning purposes.

Whatever the final destination of your unwanted clothing, you can rest assured that you will be doing your bit for either those less fortunate than yourself or playing your part in the fight against global warming.

Going that extra mile

If you have a charitable cause that is especially close to your heart, we will help you to make a real difference. Whether it's raising money through organising a community-wide collection project or working with local businesses to pool your resources to raise much needed funds for your local community group, school, or charity, we would love to help. Just give us a call to find out how.

Let's make a difference together

Here at CASH-CLOTHES, we like to make sure that everyone benefits from the service we provide.

All it takes is one call, email or text to get the ball rolling and start changing the lives of those who live in your local community, the residents of Third World countries, and to help slow global warming, all while putting a bit of extra money in your pocket.

What better way to start the New Year?

To book a collection, or for more details, visit http://www.cash-clothes.co.uk, call +44(0)1384-232-238, or alternatively email [email protected]. We would love to hear from you. Let's start making a difference, together.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...
