    Leaving HK and getting rid of your stuff

    Done a lot of research and called around so hopefully this is helpful to you. I suggest calling some of them to see what they are in need of.

    The Guest Room - takes used towels, bedding and pillows, Men's casual clothes and shoes, toiletries (even opened but individually packaged feminine hygiene products), water bottles, rice cooker and kettle

    https://impacthk.org/

    Refugee Union - takes clothes, accessories, toys, shoes, bags, small household and electrical appliances etc

    For donations please message directly at:
    Whatsapp (64604893) or email (namagembeadel[email protected])

    Salvation Army - They can arrange for a free pick up if you have more than 5 large bags of clothing and if your building has a lift

    https://www.salvationarmy.org.hk/en/services/donate

    Christian Action - collect new or old clothes, accessories, toys, shoes, bags, small household and electrical appliances etc. They can arrange for a free pick up if you have more than 3 large bags

    They will help dismantle and take your furniture for $2K HKD and only picks up on the Island side on Tuesday and Thursday.

    A lot the domestic helpers maintain a boarding house for usage when on day off etc. Can also donate to the local one around where you live. Just ask your helper about it. Can be a TV you no longer need or anything to make a comfy place for them.

    Highly recommend CROSSROADS FOUNDATION as well. They do a great job with getting donated items to people and communities in the need, worldwide. I've volunteered there and packed containers, so recommending.

    They also have an app called "Goodcity HK" on the app store where you can take pictures of what you want to donate and arrange pick-up/drop off.

    An expat right of passage is to accept a box of random foodstuffs from a friend or neighbor leaving HK. I've gotten tomato juice, mustard sauce, cake icing mix, pickled red cabbage and lots and lots of booze. This ritual comes full circle when you leave your food for someone else. I gave away two quality Scotch whisky collection moving from first from HK to SZ and then SZ back to the States.

    Hahaha... my friend's are all getting a mix of whatever is left in my pantry and all my expensive toiletries.... Honestly, selling stuff hasn't been fun - I'm just using that to offset some of my disposal costs and just wanting to not add to the landfill
