What’s better than buying Lena Dunham’s clothes? Knowing your money is going to a very good cause.

The Girls star realized she had some major closet cleaning to do, and decided to make it a win/win/win situation. On Sunday she announced via an article in the New York Times that she is selling 169 pieces from her wardrobe for charity.

The items will be available today on the consignment site The Real Real, and all 70% of her commission rate will go to Planned Parenthood. The actress told the New York Times:

“I realized I had been carrying around a lot of crap, both internally and externally. I always thought I was going to hoard all my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with a reproductive illness, I may end up with an adopted son, I may end up with a daughter who doesn’t identify with her gender at birth. You can’t live for the future that does not yet exist. I have to take all this good fashion fortune I’ve had and spread it.”

The pieces will range in size from 4 to 12, and will include some very special outfits, like the Elizabeth Kennedy gown she donned at the 2017 Met Gala. If you’ve got a spare $4,000, it could be yours!

The actress took to Instagram today to share the news, and let fans know that each purchase will include a personalized note from her. She wrote:

“I’ve been lucky enough to own some truly special (often custom) pieces from innovative designers and selling items that have been worn down Brooklyn streets, on the set of GIRLS and at awards shows and book signings. Each purchase will come with a note from me that documents my experience wearing the piece. I hope you enjoy the pieces and the stories behind them.”
