Giving Goods exists to encourage people with a giving heart to make the right connections so that they can make the best use of their donated time and goods.  We encourage conversation on our blog page.  We’d love to hear your ideas about donating, your experiences with non-profits or your great finds in one of our second hand stores.  However, to ensure the integrity of our bloggers and our readers is maintained, we reserve the right to not post (or later remove) inappropriate comments. We are committed to bringing information to the community and developing a community of shared experiences and thoughts, so be sure to follow the guidelines below.

  • Be respectful – do not insult, threaten, or abuse; do not use profanity, deception, or off-color remarks (or jokes); and do not post illegal content (such as another’s copyrighted work);
  • Be honest and engage – give us feedback about how we can make our blog even better and offer accurate insights and informed responses when topics appeal to you, do not post or spread false or misleading information;;
