Well, we really needed your help and you gave it!
With the donations of literally thousands of Freecycle members, we were able to raise over $130,000 / £80,000 surpassing our $25k / £16,000 Fiscal Year-End fundraising goal by a five-fold margin!!!
We were faced with a particularly tight fiscal-year end this year needing to meet certain governmental donation minimums to remain a charity. Thanks to your generosity, we not only met this minimum goal, but surpassed to a degree that we will now be able to make a critical investment in Freecycle.org to bring it up to the latest web standards. Look for some big changes in the coming six months to a year on Freecycle.org as a result!
It’s only thanks to our nearly 9 million members and our over 7,000 volunteer moderators that we’re able to make such a large-scale community function -- thanks for making this unique web community possible. Currently over 34,000 items are gifted on Freecycle.org every day. That’s the equivalent that a mid-sized landfill would receive! Here’s to one less landfill on the planet!
With much gratitude for the difference you’re making with your gift… and for your gifting!
