Did you know you can turn your worst Christmas gifts into cash and simultaneously help those in need?
Christmas is the best time of the year – a time to be spent with family and reflect on what’s most important.
Christmas almost usually involves a gift exchange, which is everyone’s favourite part. Unfortunately, we often do not receive the gifts we asked for and don’t know what to do with them once they are in our possession.
It can be a bit embarrassing, as we know we are supposed to be appreciative of gifts someone has spent the time and money to give us; however, there is nothing fun about keeping bad Christmas presents we know we will never use.
The good news is that you don’t have to keep the gifts you don’t want. Start the New Year off right by selling your unwanted Christmas presents online at www.esolidar.co.uk and designating a portion of the sales to benefit a charity of your choice.
eSolidar is a social impact startup that allows users to sell products online whilst designating a charity to receive a proportion of the proceeds. We are also a forum for charities to post products and auctions in order to easily fundraise without incurring large fees.
Our goal is to provide an alternative form of fundraising for charities and simultaneously establish an online community of individuals that are dedicated to giving to the greater good.
For each product listed, the seller can designate a percentage of the total sale to be donated to one of our registered charities. When a user is about to purchase a product, they can see which percentage of the sale will go to charity.
