Joined Up Giving

I predict that a small Web site called The Giving Effect is going to have a BIG effect on the way Americans give. They’ve come up with an easy, efficient way for people to donate old (or new) stuff – such as clothing, books, shoes or toys – to the people who need it most.

Simply log onto the site, type in an item that you’ve got to give, pick your favorite cause, your preferred delivery method, and – bingo - the site matches you with a charity in or near your zip code. The whole process takes less than a minute or two.

There are over 1,400 unique organizations to choose from including the Bay Area Girls Rock Camp (Oakland, CA), Rumble Arts Center (Chicago, IL,) Mutt Madd-ness (Marietta, GA,) and Recycling for Food (West Bend, WI.)
