DARE Magazine; May-June 2023 Issue
Australians making a difference
When Alison heard about the charity Good360 in the US, she was in awe of its scale and efficiency – distributing billions of dollars worth of new goods to people in need over several decades. She knew an online marketplace for businesses to donate spare wares could have the same impact in Australia, where $2.5 billion worth of unsold household goods is wasted annually, while one in six people lives below the poverty line. Alison founded Good360 Australia in 2012, and launched the online marketplace three years later.
“It is a big job to educate businesses to donate these goods and connect them to our network of around 3,500 charities and disadvantaged schools Australia-wide, which is growing every day,” she tells DARE. “Already, 34 million items have been donated.”
