Soft Swap is an entrance by donation OUTDOOR clothing exchange, where women & femme folks all over can get together, swap outfits, and connect with their community. Once in the swap, all clothes will be FREE, unless marked for the silent auction.

As the event is ENTRANCE BY DONATION, all money raised will be going to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre.

All left over clothing will be sorted out by volunteers for non-profits in the Vancouver area.
