It's that time of year again-Garage Sale Season! If you have started
your spring cleaning and decided it is time to get rid of your excess
stuff, having a garage sale is a great way to accomplish that. You can
take it a step further and become part of the new grass roots movement
taking off across the country, to raise funds for charity. It is called
Garage Sales for Charity.org.
A very simple effortless way for
millions of individuals who have a garage sale to raise funds for their
favorite charity. If you plan on having a garage sale you don't need to
do anything special or different, all you need to do is commit to
donating a minimum of $50 or 10% or your sales to your favorite charity.
Any charity--your local food shelf, church program, local shelter,
national charity, wherever you feel it will do the most good. It is
entirely up to you.
Garage Sales for Charity.org does not handle
any of the funds donated. They simply act as a central resource for
ideas and promotion. The simplicity of this plan is what makes it so
appealing. Effortless fund raising for charities during the slow summer
months when donations are down. There are no ulterior motives or agendas
to promote. There are no million-dollar budgets behind this, no
expensive TV commercials, and no celebrity endorsements. They are not
affiliated with any organization, charity or political group.
person, one garage sale can make a difference. This is grass roots at
its best. The potential over the next several months is huge! A mere 100
people participating every week in every state would raise $1,000,000 a
month for charities across the country. This is money local charities
would have otherwise never seen, during the months they may need it the
most. Charities can hop on board by including garagesalesforcharity.org
web address in all their fund raising materials, giving the people who
they count on the most, one more way to raise funds. Sell, donate, feel
good! Saving the world one garage sale at a time.
