DonateDirect is an online not-for-profit initiative that helps people donate essential household items and have them go directly to people in need: DonateDirect. The process is as follows. Members of our community list their high-quality pre-loved household items for donation on our website. At the same time, charities and community service providers – our Community Partners - request items listed as available on our website for their clients (disadvantaged or vulnerable individuals). Items can range from large items such as furniture and white goods to smaller items such as linen, blankets, and kitchenware. Televisions, computers, and smartphones are also often requested. Matches or “links” are then created between what’s needed by our community partners’ clients and what’s being donated. Each donation is then transferred from the donor to the community partner who pass it on to their client in need. DonateDirect aims to have as many good quality pre-loved items go directly to people in need, improving the quality of life of people suffering financial hardship and also reducing the burden of waste on our environment.
