One hundred per cent of net proceeds directly support the Canadian Diabetes Association

TORONTO, March 14, 2014 /CNW/ - Clothesline is excited to announce the extension of its "Cash in on your Clutter" until April 30, 2014 giving Canadians another month to de-clutter for a chance to win great prizes!
