A platform for sharing with people in need.
How to find someone who needs help
If you need a particular item, feel free to browse our “Giving away” section to find items you need and can take off someone else’s hands. If you cannot find an exact match, feel free to create your own post, detailing what you are looking for in the “In search of” category. If you have a specific question, you can also check out “Questions and Answers” section.
How it Works
Check for the latest posts on what you are looking for and you can provide. You will find many people in direct need who you can contact if you have the ability to donate.
Make sure to check all information provided by the poster, focusing on the location. Provide only the information necessary to a successful donation.
Once you come to an accord, you can both find a date, time, and location for the exchange. You may also agree to a donation shipment based on the distance.
If you are looking to request an item, post in our “In search of” section. If you are looking to give away a certain item, post in our “Giving away” section.
Make sure to include a description of the item with pictures also encouraged. Include location so that anyone knows how easy it will be to set up an exchange.
You have the freedom to choose who you donate to based on their response and need. Both parties make their own decision on setting up a safe exchange.

"There’s nothing quite better than knowing you’re helping change somebody’s life by just giving them something you didn’t need anymore"
"I was skeptical at first, but, even though I have seen other sites like this, none could match up to my experience with Our Donation Station where I felt I was genuinely helping people."
"The forums here gave me the inspiration to trust others who have helped me in so many ways"
"I was looking for a way to get rid of my old equipment. I was going to sell it, but it felt so much better to get it to someone that truly needed it"
