This time of year I find myself noticing all the Stuff in my house.
Some of it is stuff we love and use; some of it is stuff that just needs to go, and some of it is stuff that isn’t being used but feels too precious to drop in a donation bin.
Happily, there’s now a better idea. It’s called Better Finds, and it’s an app and online marketplace that lets you turn your unwanted items into a cash donation for a favorite non profit or charity.
You can literally make a difference by cleaning out your closets!
It took me just about a minute to create a listing for this sweater. It’s new, and it was a gift that came all the way from Iceland. I just never wear it. I love that the Better Finds app makes it super easy for me to find a new home for it, and I super love knowing that the purchase price will go directly to a great cause.
And, right now, you have a special opportunity to help Olive Crest, an amazing local charity that works on behalf of area foster kids.
Since 1973, Olive Crest has transformed the lives of over 100,000 abused, neglected, and at-risk children and their families. But there is so much more to do. Every donation made during the #GiveItUpForFosterKids Campaign will help Olive Crest assist even more children in need.
You can help Olive Crest right now by choosing an item to give up in support of foster kids! Simply download the Olive Crest version of Better Finds, post an item, share it on Facebook and nominate a friend to #GiveItUpForFosterKids, too!
If someone is interested in buying your item, coordinate to find a time to meet up so they can purchase the item through Better Finds and you can hand it over. Their payment will go straight to Olive Crest and you’ll get a tax receipt for the full purchase price! Feel free to browse and find some items you can’t live without yourself! It’s shopping for a great cause!
