WebThriftStore Announces American Red Cross As Newest Charity Partner

NEW YORK, NY – July 30, 2014. WebThriftStore, a leading online fundraising platform, today announced a partnership with American Red Cross. The partnership will allow the Red Cross to raise money via a customized, free online thrift store.

Supporters will be encouraged to donate items such as household goods, automobiles, disaster supplies and more. All items are automatically listed into the general marketplace and sold, with the majority of the proceeds going directly to the Red Cross.

“We are not typically able to accept small quantities of individual donations for emergency relief purposes,” said Jennifer Elwood, Vice President of Consumer Marketing at the Red Cross. “Partnering with WebThriftStore will now enable donors to sell their items while supporting the Red Cross and allow us to use the proceeds to provide relief to those who need it most.”

WebThriftStore provides any supporter of the Red Cross with a streamlined donation experience, where items are donated through ThriftSNAP, WebThriftStore’s recently released mobile app for iPhone and iPad, or via a web browser. Donated items are immediately listed for sale in our online marketplace where they can be purchased by anyone, anywhere in the U.S.

“We are thrilled to support the Red Cross in raising money to assist their life-saving mission,” said Doug Krugman, WebThriftStore founder and CEO. “This relationship is a milestone for our organization that reinforces our mission of helping others do good by getting rid of excess stuff in order to assist others.”
