How Does This Work
Reason To Give transforms material goods into "feel-goods". Organizing the needs of the Humboldt Park community into easy, 1-click purchases, Reason To Give empowers would-be givers around the world to make a real difference with their dollar.
Ready to give? There's a whole marketplace full of needs specific to Humboldt Park's residents, businesses, congregations and community organizations. Listen to the stories and find your own reasons to give!
Unlike charities or seasonal food & clothing drives, Reason To Give is personal, direct, unlimited and year-round. Qualifying applicants share their story and need on our website, shoppers hear the stories and purchase the remedy. We coordinate the delivery, follow up with the recipient and post their success story. Super simple.
All the Reason To Give recipients receive professional services and/or new, brand name items. While we love recycling, garage sales and thrift stores, Reason To Give believes strongly that our website should provide sustainable, high quality items that are safe for the environment and built to last. No hand-me-downs or used items.
Reason To Give is also a cool alternative to traditional gift giving since you can make charitable purchases on behalf of friends and family, you can give them a Reason To Give t-shirt or tote and a personalized certificate instead.
