#GivingTuesday is all about doing good things and supporting good causes, in any way you can! It doesn’t have to be difficult. That’s why we created Buengo – the place where good things happen. Here are five ways you can do something good as soon as you’ve installed the app:
1. Donate an item
Buengo is all about a marketplace for good, where you can sell the things you no longer need, and donate the proceeds to good causes. Treated yourself over the Black Friday weekend? Why not make room for your new things by having a sort out and declutter. Take a quick snap of the things you don’t need anymore and pop them for sale on Buengo, choosing a good cause to donate the proceeds to.
2. Volunteer for a cause
We want Buengo to be a place where you can do good without dipping into your pockets, which is why we’ve added volunteering to the app. Check out remote or local opportunities and see how you could really make a difference. Can’t find anything that fits? You can offer your services and wait for a good cause to contact you!
3. Share a story on Facebook
Buengo’s News Feed is a place to share stories and ideas on doing good things. Seen something you think is great? Share it on Facebook and encourage more people to join our community for good.
4. Buy a virtual item
Loads of charities and good causes have added virtual items to the Buengo marketplace. It might be a sleeping bag for a homeless person, or a school uniform for a girl in Africa – there are plenty to choose from. By buying one of these items, you have a better idea of where your money goes, and the charity can buy the item on your behalf. Check out our favourite virtual items.
5. Grab yourself a bargain for good
Who knew you could shop and also give back at the same time? When you buy something for sale on Buengo, the proceeds are transferred directly to a charity or good cause. And, the seller doesn’t receive any money at all – so you know you’re not being ripped off. Go on, treat yourself.
