What charities say about Us

Excellent -
A platform like charityBay is a great partnership for SisterWorks in spreading awareness about our organisation. Any bit of money invested into SisterWorks goes a very long way for a locally based non-profit like us. Furthermore, the ethos of charityBay in promoting a sustainable cycle for unused items blends with the ethical model of our SisterWorks products. We believe in sustainability and making consumption more eco friendly.

Genius! A way for charities to be supported by making use of items that may otherwise go to waste, especially during social distancing.

World Youth International are so excited to be featured on charityBay. This user-friendly online marketplace that helps you convert your unwanted valuable items into donations allows non-profit organisations such as ours to focus on our sustainable development projects. It has been a pleasure working closely with the charityBay team so far, and we hope our relationship can continue to grow over coming months and beyond. Well done to charityBay for their innovation in creating such a worthwhile platform to facilitate the act of giving when the world needs it most!

Step Up For Students started to work with charityBay in 2020, a year full of challenges for everyone. However, thanks to the support of charityBay, a platform that helps charities across Australia, we have been able to support international students during these difficult times. We are very grateful with Mateo and his team not only for the constant support, but for the innovative, unique, and eco-friendly ideas and strategies.
