Platform to sell used items to raise money for your local community projects!
This Online Charity Marketplace makes raising funds for local community projects easy. We all are culprits of hoarding unused belongings and household items worth more than a few hundred dollars that clutter up our cupboards, garages and basements.
After their retirement, a Canadian couple in Guelph decided to downsize and move out to their condo in Oakville when they realized just how much stuff they had. But rather than taking it to a thrift store or selling it on eBay for money, they decided they wanted to create some good. After brainstorming with some friends and members of the Muslim Society of Guelph, they proposed creating an Online Charity Marketplace where local community members could sell their things and then give the proceeds to charitable causes in their local community.
Muslim Society of Guelph – Community Centre Project
The Muslim community in Guelph has grown exponentially in recent years. The Muslim Society of Guelph’s construction of a 15,000-square-foot community centre will fill a growing need within the community. The community centre will be a multi-use area, acting as a gymnasium, prayer area and eventually a place where the Muslim Society of Guelph can operate charitable support groups.
“Our Community Centre Project is in continuous need of funds. We are constructing 15,000 sq.ft. of space to accommodate increased demands. The cash donations are hard to come by, and the Charity Marketplace is a great way for people to give back to their community without dipping into their pockets. It also motivates people to declutter and, simultaneously, do good,” said Muhammad Sayyed, president of the Muslim Society of Guelph.
Save the People International is proud to host the Charity Marketplace and work with local communities across Canada to raise funds for their religious, welfare and social projects.
