Life in 2016 has become quite fast-paced. Globalization and technology have surely upped our standard of living but it came at a dear cost; time. Technology has facilitated communication to save time, but the wide range of options and available information we now have requires curation from our part and that takes additional time. We have cars to travel quicker but too many cars result in traffic jams where we ‘lose’ time. Basically, we have made our lives more complex by creating things that make our lives simpler. That’s one of the paradoxes of progress in our society.
Fortunately, people have not stopped feeling for others despite the constant urge of having to earn money or win this race called life. Do-gooders think of those in need and try to help them in some way or the other. Many of these people have their own dreams to achieve and debts to pay, but they realize how lucky they are to have access to their basic needs. If YOU haven’t helped anyone before, you shouldn’t feel bad or guilty. Money is after all essential for us to function and not all of us can give out money just like that. This is where Easy Charity can help you help others.
Apart from hoarders obviously, we all own some stuff that we don’t use at all and that have no sentimental value whatsoever. These can be books, clothes, electronics, furniture, decorative items or any random item. Easy Charity helps you turn those unused or unwanted possessions into money that you can donate to any charity of your choice.
Here’s how we function:
You simply have to take a picture of the item you want to donate and fill a service donation form online. You tag a monetary value to your item and we will put it on sale for you through online shopping. Once someone has purchased your item, we will send you a pre-paid shipping label for you to send the item to the buyer. The proceeds will go to one of our partner charities that you choose. The charity that receives the proceeds can also get in touch with the donor to thank the latter. Carrying out a donation from the comfort of your home has never been easier. Also, our website is user-friendly and as a buyer, you can come across some very good deals when browsing our online shop.
The idea is pretty straightforward and the concept was materialized as a means to encourage people to give to charity, without having to donate money. We all have some stuff at home that we know could be given away, but don’t bother doing it because of the effort required to find out who to give it to. Easy Charity resolves this problem too! And as the old adage goes: “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”; there is someone out there who is ready to buy the stuff you do not use. Easy Charity basically acts as a platform where this transaction can be made and allows you to donate for a noble cause.
So don’t hesitate to give it a shot. You’re only trying to help those in need after all, and you never know when a charity could be of priceless help to you or your loved ones.
