Online shopping site Overstock.com,Inc. has announced a partnership that will provide its customers a new way to easily donate their gently used household items through Give Back Box, a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating charitable donations.

Through the partnership, Overstock.comgives customers the ability to re-use the shipping case in which their order arrived, along with Give Back Box's free shipping label, to ship gently used household items directly to non-profit organizations across the U.S.

"Our culture at Overstock is focused around doing the right thing and giving back to the community," says Stormy Simon, President of Overstock. "The partnership with Give Back Box is an opportunity to assist our customers in doing just that. Buy a fashionable new dress on Overstock and send an older one from your closet to someone in need."

The process begins when a customer shops at Overstock. As the customer's order is packaged for shipping, program materials are inserted into the shipping case. The material contains Overstock's request to support environmental and social causes through the donation of used items directly to worthy organizations.



"Through this partnership, we can encourage millions of customers to donate in a way that's convenient for them," adds Simon. "It's too easy not to participate."

Your article on give back box has major inaccuracies. They are NOT a non profit organization they are a FOR profit corporation. Secondly, the only charity that you are able to donate goods to currently is Goodwill Industries who pays there CEO over 2 million dollars a year. You should report your facts correctly before printing articles like this. The impression given in this inaccurate article is that worthy causes benefit which may be possible but the principles and their investors at give back box profit greatly from each box that is sent to Goodwill. And the public needs to know this......
