How Your Pre-loved Furniture Can Feed Children in Malawi

Selling your pre-loved furniture can be a little time-consuming, and annoying. We're all for selling online and passing on but what if you could do that and give back.

Thrift for Good is the UAE’s leading charity thrift shop chain with an online collection and currently two stores on the Palm Jumeirah and in Times Square Center Al Quoz. They rehome preloved clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, and books to reduce waste and raise funds for children around the world by donating 100% of their profits to the children’s charity projects of Gulf for Good.

Thrift for Good have now partnered with Think Upcycle to rehome and give back. You can contact Think Upcycle for a free collection. They will then upcycle them into unique, affordable, and environmentally furniture and sell the items in their shop in Ajman or on their platform. What is more, Think Upcycle will generously contribute 20% of the sales price for referred items to Thrift for Good’s children’s charity project.

The current project is to purchase the “Sparkle Farm”, land which will be used to secure two daily meals for children in Malawi, lowering the Sparkle Foundation’s food costs. Also, the land will be built into the curriculum for the children in their care, so farming can be learned as a life skill – a staple in the Malawian economy and workforce.

How can people contribute their preloved furniture? 1. There are three methods to contact Think Upcycle: Visit contact Think Upcycle at 04 204 9292 or +971585927522 via WhatsApp. 2. Mention Thrift for Good as a benefactor. 3. Customer service will walk you through the next steps to share the image for additional review. 4. Free collection takes place on a mutually agreed-upon date.
