Do good and donate unwanted stuff to Good Stuff Market’s virtual op-shop
All of this extra time at home has yielded some unexpected outcomes. For some, it’s a newfound interest in baking whilst for others, isolation has meant time to tackle all of those annoying tasks you’ve been meaning to do – like clearing out the junk cupboard! You know the one – that cupboard where you put all of the things that don’t have a place. The only problem is figuring out what to do with it all, especially since the vast majority of op-shops are closed for donations for the foreseeable future. Say hello to Good Stuff Market – it’s the virtual op-shop 2020 needs right now.
Look around, do you have some unwanted stuff that you no longer need, couldn’t be bothered to sell or would just like to do a little good deed? If so, jump online to Good Stuff Market click donate. The kind-hearted folk will then arrange a courier at no cost to you and you can sit back with a cuppa feeling pretty darn chuffed with yourself. Once they have the goods, they on-sell them and donate the surplus cash to one of their chosen charities and then send you a tax receipt for your troubles – everybody wins! Ultimately, it’s less stuff in landfill and more cash for charities to keep doing good within the community.
So, what kind of goods do they accept? Well-known, quality brands that are in good, saleable condition. Basically, if you would happily give it to a friend, Good Stuff Market will accept it. Think clothing, kids stuff, tech, bikes and sporting equipment, lego and books. Where does the money go? You can take a peek at the whole list of charity partners here but just some of the beneficiaries are OzHarvest, where for every $1 given, they provide two meals to someone in need, Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation, which is undertaking groundbreaking research into a cure for childhood dementia, RizeUp Australia, which is driving awareness of domestic and family violence, and Rural Fire Brigade Association Queensland. In addition to donations, you can also support Good Stuff Market by having a good virtual op-shop rummage through their online store here.
