Hi. My name is Steve. I am a fulltime geek and a part time farmer. I was fortunate to be able to spend a few weeks in Nepal this year. While I was in Nepal I began watching how the people reused or repurposed all sorts things. Burlap bags became flower pots. Worn climbing ropes became clothes lines or horse leads. I continued to think about this when I got home. I thought rather than throwing good things away let’s give people that can use it a chance to take what they need. Neighbors helping neighbors. We match people that need things (and may not have the means to buy them a chance to get them for free) to people that were going to throw things away. It doesn’t matter what it is. One persons garbage is another persons treasure. Reusing things is a lot better than filling up garbage dumps and landfills with perfectly useful stuff. It’s an active form of recycling.
In addition to listings this site allows non-profit organizations to have a web presence. They can set up web pages, post flyers, advertise events and just about anything else you can do on the web. Local charities involved in helping people are welcome to use this feature.
The site is organized around location. States, cities and neighborhoods are how we organize listings. The purpose of this is to allow you to work with people and organizations that are close to you.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
People that want to help others, people in need and non-profit organizations.
