This is really cool - an innovative use of Gumtree by Debra Ireland. If you're unfamiliar with Gumtree, it's a free classified ads website.
This is what I got from Gumtree:
Donate your stuff to the Gumtree charity Pop-Up Shop
Would you like to do some good and get rid of clutter in your house? We're
setting up a Pop-Up Shop for just 3 days in aid of DEBRA Ireland,
and want to raise as much money as possible by selling items you donate to our
charity shop this week.
Items you pledge for donation will be for sale at our shop at Stephen's Green
shopping centre from Thursday to Saturday this week.
Proceeds from the shop will help fund a DEBRA Ireland family support worker and
specialised nurse in Our Lady's Hospital Crumlin, as well as research projects
in areas like skin cancer.
Want to help? Here's what you can do:
1. Dig around at home for anything you don't want or need. Clothes,
jewellery, sports equipment, furniture…as long as it's in good condition,
we'll gladly take it.
2. Place an ad on Gumtree.ie:
Tip: The For Sale category is probably the best place for your item.
3. Copy and paste this line into your ad:
"I'm pledging this item to help DEBRA Ireland. Buy it at Gumtree's pop-up
shop at Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, 24-26 June."
4. Get your item delivered to:
DEBRA Ireland office
La Touche House
1 Grove Road
If you're in the surrounding Dublin area, call Caitriona at 01 412 6924 to
arrange for a pickup.
Don't have anything to sell? That's alright too. Have a look around the For Sale
section, pop over to the shop this week and buy something to support DEBRA Ireland.
