I’ve been using Freecycle for more than a year and I’d like to talk to you about this great initiative. Sometimes we have a lot of stuff at home that is not being used. We keep this stuff until we decide to put on the garbage when summer comes. However, why not donate for someone in need?
That’s how Freecycle is helping people around the world. Instead of putting stuff away, why not donate for someone that is in need and could be reused?Just as an example, I’ve got an exercise bike, a printer and a dryer. All of them in excellent conditions. It did not cost me anything – just the gas and of course the car to go to the place and pick it up.
The initiative is great and as you’ve got something for free, I am sure you also have something that you’re not using and could give for someone else right? Take a look at your house and around you. Plates, forks, carpet, light bulbs, cards, bikes, tires, clothes, anything can be donated.
You’re helping yourself and also someone else. There are more than four thousand groups around the world and basically you need to visit the Freecycle website, choose your country, then your province/state and finally your city. After that, just subscribe to the desired city.
Here in Toronto the group is active and there’s not a day that I couldn’t receive at least 15 messages. So, if you’re in need of something for free, give Freecycle a try. It is free, what else do you need?
