E-Bay Charity Shopping

FRN issued the following press release on 16th January 2008:

EBay Shopping Mall for Re-use Charities

 FRN team up with Missionfish to empty the cupboards

The Furniture Re-use Network today launched a page dedicated to selling items on eBay which have been collected by re-use charities.

Many re-use charities find that bric-a-brac and other collectable items fill a lonely and abandoned corner of their warehouses.  The FRN has partnered up with EBay for Charity organisation MissionFish to create an on-line shopping mall to help make these items available to the general public.

Nick Aldridge, CEO of MissionFish, said, “EBay for Charity is the perfect channel for turning in-kind donations into cash. I hope our partnership with FRN will show eBay for Charity’s potential for recycling and re-use charities.”

Paul Smith, Chief Executive of the FRN commented, “We want these items to collect money rather than dust for our member groups.  Hording these items in the hope that one day they will find a home is not re-use.  This partnership can also bring knowledge of our members’ services to a wider on-line community”.
