It’s the giving season! And even though I am a big proponent of giving back all year-round, I think it’s especially important to be generous during the holidays. Heck, I know plenty of us get stressed about money this time of year, so I can only imagine what it’s like for others who are not as fortunate as we are.
That’s why I’d like to introduce you guys to a brand new and easier way to help those in need.
It is a new app that allows you to schedule your donation of used goods and have them picked up directly from your doorstep! So smart, right?! And the best part of all: It’s sooo easy to use!
Have you ever cleaned out your closet, bagged up old items for donation, but then let them sit for way too long because you never got around to actually dropping them off at a donation center? I know I’m guilty!! Well, now that problem is solved!
Here’s how ReSupply works.
Pick a local charity that supports a cause you’re passionate about.
Choose a date and time that works with your schedule.
Place your donation on your doorstep and go about your day.
Oh… The app even generates a digital tax receipt for your donation! Yep, all those tax credit receipts you crumpled up and swore you’d hand over to your accountant—those are no longer your problem, either. ReSupply takes care of it for you, so you only have to focus on one thing… Giving.
Recently I had a chance to meet ReSupply Founder/CEO Paul Tocci during my annual #TisTheSeasonBrunch where he shared the inspiration behind ReSupply. Paul explained that during his time at West Point Academy there was a common issue that he noticed: Waste. He went further by stating that a majority of the items discarded would definitely benefit someone in need. Paul explained that “People want to give, it’s just that charitable giving can be very hard.” I can attest to that. Because my lifestyle can get hectic I don’t always have time to stop by a local charity to drop off my used goods. But with ReSuppy I can schedule a donation pickup at a time that works for me. So fab!
Another thing I love about this app is that it’s owned and operated by Army veterans. Paul stated that ReSupply also helps veterans by giving them jobs! Now that’s super cool! 😎 ReSupply recently launched in Atlanta, partnering with a host of local charities including Atlanta Step Up Society, Pavilion of Hope, Way Out, Atlanta Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Friends of Disabled Adults and Children, Shop the Edge, Second Life Upscale Resale, and Assistance League just to name a few.
During my #TisTheSeasonBrunch event, my guests brought toys that I’ll be donating to a local charity using the app. I’m so excited about this partnership, and I hope you all will download the ReSupply app and consider giving to others less fortunate than yourself.
