Made-in-Ottawa app helps you declutter for a good cause
A made-in-Ottawa app is giving people a new way to get rid of the junk piling up in their closets and garages while benefiting local charities.
GiveShop, which launched in June, is a platform where sellers can hawk their goods and buyers can haggle like on Kijiji or Facebook Marketplace — only on GiveShop, the item must be purchased with a credit card and the proceeds go to charity. The seller then receives a tax receipt and GiveShop takes a 15 per cent processing fee.

Ottawa-made GiveShop app makes it easy to donate unwanted stuff to charity
GiveShop sells the merchandise in an online marketplace and directs the proceeds to a selected charity, which can then issue tax receipts based on sales price.
An Ottawa team has launched a new app, GiveShop, that affords charities the ability to raise money through online, physically distanced garage sales. The app, launched earlier this month, is the brainchild of Ottawa entrepreneur John Farah, who has been working on the project for three-and-a-half years. Farah conceived of the app as a way for people to use the stuff collecting dust in their basements — furniture, artwork, sports equipment — for the benefit of local charities.
