By now, you may have heard about Need By Need (and if you’re on this site, then you definitely have), but you may be asking yourself why I decided to start it.
Well, it basically came down to money.
I hate wasting it. And I hate seeing nonprofit organizations wasting it as well, especially when I have no idea how my particular donation is even used.
Many of these large, international organizations you see have surprisingly low percentages of money actually going to help the people they serve.
Don’t hear me wrong, even those percentages do a heck of a lot of good in people’s lives.
However, I wanted to create an organization that was so bare-bones, pretty much everything we collect can go to help other small nonprofits in their missions AND our donors knew exactly what they were donating toward.
And that is exactly how Need By Need operates.
If you donate $10 to Need By Need to help buy an item for an organization (like purchasing 10 mattresses for Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter), 100% of that will go toward that purchase.
We do have some small overhead costs (including things like donation fees, yearly registration fees, etc.), but we have partners who donate money specifically to cover those.
We’re starting small, but I hope that we can grow, particularly with your help.
If you haven’t checked out what we’re doing for Palmetto Place, please click here to take 2 minutes to watch a short video about it.
If you can, please consider chipping in $5, $10, or $15 to go toward purchasing these 10 mattresses. It would mean a lot to everyone at Palmetto Place (especially the kids!).
Thank you in advance for your support and please, contact me if you have any questions.
