Giffgaff members freebies section

By: kathleen414 | 11-03-2014 10:42

 

Hi everyone.
Was thinking maybe we should or could have Giffgaff freebies section
Plenty of us get or have unwanted items
Of all descriptions
Or at times we need something.
As we're a awesome community maybe we could help each other out  ?
Maybe even a little donation to our gg charities once you receive your freebie (optional)
Could be a great asset to the community
Anything could be included subject to giffgaffs approval

An old phone or a spare part .
how many times when we upgrade to new phones or tech /games system and all the kits either binned or stuck in the cupboards.
Pass it on and make someone else happy
What do you think ?
We could have local pick ups or posted to be arranged with recipient of the freebie

posted in of topic discussion originally

For clarity added information. 

 

I understand there are other sites to recycle your unwanted item. But my idea is not to show people were to give the items away but to offer them within our community . Example. I may not be bothered to search out my stuff and use  sites as you mention.. But if see a giffgaff community member who needs an item I may be more inclined to donate it too them.

liking the sentiment however would it be used enough to make the implementation worth it? With sites like freecycle out there already I am not sure. Also the long time it has been in labs makes it obvious no one at giffgaff is particularly involved with its progress.

Unfortunately this can happen but the concerns were privacy . But we could have it in a sub section and as other you have to ask to join . It has a read me and accept before access Saying you comfortable meeting or sharing information with others

we could run this via our sub links , and all the people who sign up accept that its a free offer from a member i there location and they will need to arrange a place to exchange the item or pick up details as with all sites .

if they are not comfortable with these rules then best not sign up
