Donation Value Guide: How Much Are Your Donation Items Actually Worth?
One of the benefits of making a donation to a nonprofit is the ability to claim a tax deduction for your donation. But how much can you claim? When donating used items, that can get tricky. Gently used items don't exactly have price tags on them anymore, and they lose value as soon as they are used, so you can only claim the resale value.
Newbie Upcycle Challenger
I hit the ground running on my first upcycle - or more specifically upholstering a chair, so that you can have the tools you need to participate in the first round of our Upcycle Challenge. As you could guess, the first task is to work on a chair. So, just as anyone interested in the challenge - I traveled to one of our ReStores. Just ask a staff member and they can help you sign up and pick out a chair!
