Have you thought about donating?

We highly recommend donating your items each sale—why? We have found that those who choose to reduce items for the half-price sale and also donate unsold items tend to price to sell. That means more items are likely to sell due to the great value shoppers receive during the half-price sale. And if items do not sell, they are donated to our charity partners. So no matter what, everyone wins!

Why do sellers donate? Here's what they say.

"I love helping. That's why."

I love that all these items go to help other families. They have plenty of good life left in them so to know they are going to be given to others who can love and use them makes me happy.

• Serina J, JBF Seller, Giver and grandmom of 6

"All the resources stay right here."

I love to donate because items and resources stay right here in our community. They're not shipped off somewhere and sold for scrap. They go to help our neighbors and that's why I like to donate.

• Jordan M, JBF Seller, Giver and dad of 2

"I have kids. I get it."

I realize that we ALL need help from time to time. To think that items my kids have loved can help someone else's littles makes it all worth it. I love to sell my things, sure. BUT knowing that no matter what I'm helping families—that's a great feeling.

• Leslie R, JBF Seller, Giver and mom of 4

"It makes me clean up. I need the nudge."

Full confession—I'm not good at going through the kids' closets to clear stuff out. Each sale season, though, I've developed the practice of going through the closets to sell and then donate if items don't sell. JBF helps to keep me from becoming THAT mom. :)
