COVID 19 ALERT : PLEASE READ
Your health and safety is very important to us. As such, we encourage all marketplace users to practice social distancing when meeting up to exchange purchased items. We are also asking item donors to thoroughly sanitize them prior to meeting up with a purchaser. Where feasible, items should be left outside for “curb-side” pick up. Donors and purchasers should wash their hands after every meet up. By following these simple steps, we can all stay healthy while raising much needed funds for our favorite charities. Thanks for your cooperation and support.

HOW IT WORKS
Time to clear out your basement? Why pay for storage or clog the local landfill? Donate your gently used items of value, help out your favourite charity and receive a charitable receipt.
Search for all kinds of items and filter your search by the charity you want to support. Buy that great find and feel good knowing your purchase dollars are going to charity.
All purchases are made via credit card payment using the free GiveShop App so no need to arrange for those cumbersome payments by cash or cheque.
All messaging and offers can be made right through the free GiveShop App. Organize all the items you donate, your wish list shopping favourites and your purchases in the MyGiveShop tab.
DONORS = WIN
by donating gently used items with sale proceeds helping local and national charities fulfill the goals and challenges that help all of us. Donors also win by re-purposing gently used items away from landfill and earn a charitable receipt in the process.
BUYERS = WIN
by finding great deals on a variety of gently used items and directing their shopping dollars to charities that can pass on their win to so many others. Knowing that the money you spend will go to helping charities flips shopping from a me to we activity.
CHARITIES/SCHOOLS = WIN
by offering supporters of all ages a new way to donate. Canadians that want to clear the clutter at home can turn those gently used items into good deeds that charities and schools perform. Others on a tight budget can offer gently used items a new home and help out their favourite charity or school in the process.
