To raise enough money to fund the development of a website that will help people gain access to items that they need but currently can’t afford, whilst giving others a platform to contribute items that they no longer need.
About the project
There are some wonderful second hand / recycling / sharing websites out there, however in order to benefit from these websites you need the means (transport etc) or finance to receive the items, luxuries that some people simply do not have. Also I’m a firm believer that the more helping hands out there the better!
The website will be a free listings website, allowing users to post as a Contributor or a Recipient on the premise of ‘One Persons Junk is Another Persons Treasure’.
Items listed by Contributors will be unwanted furniture, electrical goods, clothing, toiletries and non perishable food items with free delivery via courier to the Recipients local post office or to their home address.
I am not looking to make any personal profit out of this service, the amount received via Crowdfunder will be used to cover website branding / development / initial maintenance costs, initial marketing and courier setup, therefore it is imperative that I reach my target to make this happen!
Ongoing, I plan to continue to raise funds to cover costs by way of on-site advertising and further donations – any profits made will go back into the website to ensure growth and that users continue to get the best out of the service.
Therefore I am currently seeking generous individuals and/or companies that can afford to donate to help to make this happen. In addition to this, I’m seeking people that are willing to support the cause in other ways by sharing my Crowdfunding page to get as much exposure as possible so the target will be met and works can commence in Summer 2015.
