Sept 25: Give Your Stuff Away Day
Mike Morone of North Chili, NY has declared September 25 a day for citizens nationwide to give away stuff they don’t need by putting it out on their curb. It’s kind of like a Really Really Free Market but spread out across the community.
This seems like a great idea but also a big potential mess! From our experience at RRFMs, people are eager to get rid of stuff, which is great, but less eager to bring stuff back into their home if it doesn’t get scooped up. One thing that the organizers suggest is contacting your local government to provide and endorsement. Another good strategy would be reaching out to local charitable organizations to come by the day after to collect remaining items.
