Sell your 'stuff' and help the animals

Below is a message from the Animal Welfare Network. A great way to raise money for the animals.

The Animal Welfare Network are having a "Car Boot Sale" at the International School on Saturday 24 May, starting at 8 a.m.

You bring your "stuff" that you no longer love or want and sell it at the Car Boot Sale. You can then either keep all the profits after paying your $200 Vendor fee or donate some of the profits to the charity.

Alternatively, come in for free and see what people have for sale. I know that there are going to be books, plants, clothes, "stuff" for sure.

It is generally quite fun. If you plan to sell, like a garage sale, it is easier to have your items priced before you get there, walk with some change, and some old shopping bags so people can take away the stuff they bought from you. Letting people bargain is half the fun.

Give me a call if you want any more details and feel free to forward this on to anyone you think may be interested.

hi. i love this idea but can i suggest some decentralization. most of your projects are north-based. maybe some time you can come down south to san fernando or point fortin...i'm from point fortin and i really hard for me to reach all the way up to the international school.
thanks and goood luck

Hi, thanks for bringing up this point. We have talked about doing things all over the country but have not reached south yet (only as far as central, cleaning mangrove). The Animal Welfare project is not a Greenlight project - we are simply spreading the word on their behalf. Thanks for your interest, keep in touch. If there's anything specific you'd like to work on in south and would like to plan with us, please let us know.

Recycling is a great idea for the environment. I think we should also concentrate on removing electronics from landfills. Starting a business on this concept is possible:

Computer Recycling

Hey just want to say congrats to the Greenlight team who may not have demonstrated great haggling skills, but still managed to raise a good amount of money for the Animal Welfare Network. The sun was hot but it was fun :)
