The Art of Charitable Selling

Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a few thousand dollars to give to your favorite charity?

Wouldn’t it also be nice to clear out that all the clutter in your garage–those toys your kids grew out of years ago, that couch you can’t find room for in your house?

Hm. Both of those scenarios sound nice. And you know what? Thanks to Web Thrift Store, both of those scenarios are now possible! According to consumer research group NPD, the average American household has $7,000 worth of stuff the owners don’t want. Web Thrift Store provides a platform for anybody and everybody to sell their belongings to others who want the stuff. All proceeds go to a charity the seller picks, making a smooth donation of the profit from the sale. Another benefit: it’s all tax deductible.

We love Web Thrift Store because it is the perfect embodiment of turning lemons into lemonade: you can take the stuff you don’t want anymore, sell it to somebody who will use it and love it, and give the money to a charity you care about. It’s a wonderfully stress-free way to give because no cash leaves your bank account. You can also feel great about de-cluttering your life and uniting your objects with people who need them. It’s a win-win-win!

Milkshake Loves: Artisinal Backpacks
Once sported exclusively by school kids, the backpack is making a major comeback. The two-strap style is kinder on your body and better for your posture than a tote, no matter how trendy or fashion-forward it may be. Fortunately, we've found the perfect bag that will fulfill all your day-to-day need
