In the spirit of being Stewards of the Earth, whenever you consider decluttering and downsizing, don't toss your unwanted new or gently used items. Consider selling your unwanted items online and help a charity of your choosing through a new online platform Giverise.ca --a new way to fundraise.
What sets Giverise.ca apart from the other buy and sell platforms is that vendors must designate a charity of their choosing as a beneficiary of at least 5% of their sales. Vendors can opt to donate more than 5% of their sales if they wish to do so. There is no fee for using the platform either as a shopper or as a vendor.
Catholic School Advisory Councils and Student Councils, as well as individuals, are invited to consider signing on to this new platform as a way of generating revenue for local initiatives, as well as supporting a local charity. Naturally we hope that many will consider designating The Angel Foundation for Learning as the charity they will support throughout the year.
Schools may also wish to consider using this an opportunity for senior students in need of community service hours. With adult supervision, students could assist with photographing items, writing descriptions and helping to post items/information to your vendor site.

Visit The Angel Foundation for Learning store to shop for any items that are currently up for sale, and check back periodically as new items will be posted as they become available.
So, let's get selling and shopping, and help The Angel Foundation for Learning or other local charities!
