We bring together the people working to lift up Australian communities, and the spare brand-new goods of businesses. We connect surplus with need. The goal is for nothing useful to lie unused. Whether its toys to a family violence shelter or notebooks for a school—if Australians have the need, our business partners have the goods.“
