Using giveNkind was a great experience to ensure my donation found a more meaningful home. We had bags of baby clothes and related items to donate. The giveNkind platform was easy to use and it matched us with Cradles to Crayons, a nonprofit here in Chicago. Someone from Cradles to Crayons reached out to me directly to coordinate the donation exchange. I actually dropped off the items at their facility and got an in person introduction to what they do with your donation and the impact it will have on the kids they serve. Now we have an organization that we have a relationship with and trust to give our donations the best home possible. All thanks to giveNkind!
