Should I donate it?

Our son has a coat that probably wasn't going to last him another season because he is outgrowing it, but it's in good condition...until today. The pull tab thing on the zipper fell off. Should I donate the coat and assume they'll allow someone the opportunity to fix it, or just toss it? I don't want to toss it if someone can use it.

  • Id donate it. Even if you or the donation center doesnt fix it, the new owner may do it or just deal with the tab being broken.

  • If you can use the internet, I am sure you can look up a solution to your zipper problem. I"d never toss a coat in the trash just because a zipper pull broke off! lol It is a minor repair.

  • If it's just the pull tab that fell off, you can replace it with a paperclip, or one of those cute pull tabs you can buy at the store. It's a really easy fix. Yes to the donation though. Someone will pick it up and know how to fix it.

  • U can bring it to the cleaners. They can fix it for a few dollars.
