I Love Freecycle

I have received several items and been able to clean out two storage sheds using freecycle.  I really like that others can use what I no longer need and it doesn't end up in a landfill somewhere.

We'll say no more about it ;) Best of luck raising awareness - please let us know if there's any way we can help you with your cause (socialmedia @ freecycle.org)

@freecycle Thank you sir. I feel absolutely horrible about the entire incident. I've deleted my post and must apologize again for enroaching upon your topic.

@lovelyssm - Thank you. It takes character to apologize publicly; thank you for the sentiment. No harm, no foul :)

Thank you fungirlmmm, I am rarely that stern or rude, but the cause hits very close to my heart since a best friend got diagnosed last year. <br />
Lol, and I put my foot in my mouth and then some. Again, very sorry beacuse I feel like a total idiot. I wish I could take back what was said and I hope that EP excuses this transgression.<br />
<br />
It's very hard to try to get awareness for rare diseases such as MS because (1) not many people have them and don't think much about it and (2) there's usually not enough payoff for a Pharm company to invest in cures because they can't expect as much of a profit.<br />
<br />
Thank you again for accepting my apology!

I appreciate your apology and I will have to go to allforms and show them a little heart too. I have two sisters in law with MS and they, along with my sister were the reason I came to Ep originally.

Oops, it was an honest mistake, my sincerest apologies. That post wasn't targeted at fungirlmmm or anyone else here for that matter, but at someone who had been creating fake accounts to rack up points for Twitcause.<br />
<br />
I'm supporting AllforMS, a cause for Multiple Sclerosis, raising awareness for its research and treatment. If you have or know someone with that disease, we'd really appreciate your support.<br />
<br />
Very sorry again to everyone, especially freecycle and fungirlmmm.

Everything is free and you just have to go to the place and pick it up. The desk I sit at and talk to you guys came from freecycle for example.

<br />
If you like it, don't forget to come back and share your experience!

It is one of the greatest things I have ever been involved with. i am glad you guys are out there and I will always promote it positively. I was just telling people about freecycle last week on here.

uh huh, name please? Pirate name?

Feel free to do whatever you wish as EP has trackers on my account anyway due to I have a stalker here. My IP and activity is logged. If you had bothered to read my stories you would have seen this. Have a good night.

As long as it is just hugs lol

Freecycle is an organization that encourages people to not throw good stuff away, instead, give it away in your local community.<br />
<br />
So, we have local groups set up all over the place (check http://www.freecycle.org to find a local group for you).<br />
<br />
You sign up to your local group, list what you have and if anyone can reuse your stuff, they'll contact you. If you see something that someone else has posted and you can reuse it, you just let them know and they'll let you know where you can collect it from.<br />
<br />
That's it in a nutshell.<br />
<br />
So, it's an environmental group that is focused on keeping good stuff out of the already over crowded landfill, by turning it into a free gift for some else.<br />
<br />
Or as we like to say....changing the world one gift at a time!

I know a little more about freecycle than I wrote. When I have more time I may writ some more about it.

Awesome stuff - declutter, save the environment, help your neighbors...what more could you ask for? :)

I try Demi.

Thoughtful

You are welcome. I was just looking at my message board and at this moment there is a Rainbow Vacuum, A table and benches, canning jars, a printer, a massage cushion, curtains, a television, a baby jogger stroller, and storage bins that someone just wants to give to a good home. It keeps this stuff out of the landfill, helps someone else out, 's some people clean the clutter out of their homes. I love freecycle,

Thank you for sharing your story!

Exactly!<br />
___be Diligently ECO-CONSCIOUS... and a FUN GIRL!!!<br />
<br />
lol, I mean, really what would a landfill do with your stuff anyways? Just let it sit around and mold!<br />
And worse! Uggh! You are so right to be so AWARE of what you can bring to BETTER Our EARTH!!!<br />
<br />
t.y.<br />
<br />
Uhmmm, I want some GUM!!!
