Overstock.com provides reusable shipping case for donations
A new partnership between Overstock.com and Give Back Box provides customers of the online retailer with a reusable case they can use to donate items to charity.
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."
