LiLo helps Visa to empty wardrobes and fill charity coffers

When thrift meets chic: Visa, the credit card business, has snapped up Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan to front this year's Visa Swap fashion event, which encourages people (women) to swap their unwanted clothes with Traid, the clothing charity. Starting next week, people can take their unwanted clothes to two stores in Convent Garden and get redeemable points in exchange on their cards. The snazzier the clothes, the more points. Visa Swap will be running the campaign in June and July and clothes can be dropped off at The Flower Cellars in Wellington Street and No 1, the Piazza.
