Buy once, give twice

I’ve come across another good gift website.

Buy Once Give Twice ‘recycles’ donations to charity auctions. If the auction doesn’t go ahead, or the buyer gives back their prize, then this website sells them on to benefit the original charity. There’s all kinds of lots – from days out to celebrity-signed items – for a wide range of charities, often the less well-known ones.

The twist is that the selling is by an online ‘silent’ auction; at the deadline for each item, the highest bid above the reserve gets the goodies. While some of the items are expensive, there’s some bargains to be had. And all for good causes.
