About: Goods for Good (G4G) turns excess into progress.
Their slogan is straightforward because their mission is straightforward: through the innovative use of surplus, G4G promotes the development of orphans and vulnerable children. Through partnerships with international corporations and grassroots organizations in the developing world, we are able to provide school supplies, clothing, health and hygiene products and other necessities to orphans and vulnerable children, while at the same time reducing waste at home. G4G relies on donations of surplus goods from a wide range of companies. G4G volunteers help to sort the items and our donors fund the shipment. In the developing world, we build on the success of local schools and community centers by supplying them with the tools they need to care for and educate children. Many of the items G4G delivers were gathering dust in warehouses or slated to be destroyed. On the other side of the world, these same products have an immeasurable worth to disadvantaged children and their communities. Together with their international and local partners, G4G works to develop sustainable care for these vulnerable children. Goods for Good is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
