Get Stuff or Give it Away: Kashless.org

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Get stuff or give it away. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Everyone has stuff they don't need... and everyone has stuff they want. A Web site called Kashless.org...that's K-A-S-H...aims to bring the two parties together....kind of like Craigslist...with no money changing hands. CEO Martin Tobias..


"The idea came to me when I was cleaning out my garage and I had a bunch of stuff that was still good but not really worth enough to bother to sell on eBay. And it was actually much harder than I thought to give it away to a charity. There's a long list of things the Salvation Army and Goodwill won't take. So I created the site."

It started in Seattle and is now in a hundred metropolitan areas with hundreds of thousands of items listed. Whether you have stuff to get rid of....or need to find stuff for free...Kashless.org can help. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
