I'm going to be trying something new with give3, a tiny pivot from the original concept. It's actually part of what I had in mind form the beginning, but I think it makes it easier for people to participate and it creates a measurable impact on the world.
Think of give3 as gazelle.com for nonprofits. We give meaning to your unused electronics! You simply donate old smartphones, mp3 players, video game consoles/games/accessories, etc. and we sell those items on your behalf. 100% of profits go to the organization of your choice (and you get a tax deduction)!
We've been testing this out with some of our own items as well as with a few items donated by friends & family. So far we have over $400 that we'll be using to fund the medical treatment of someone on Watsi!
If you'd like to donate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
