What is Rise Against Poverty about?
Etch Empathy’s goal is to fight poverty together. Our focus is on children. We want to redistribute pre-loved, high-quality items to the disadvantaged, locally and internationally.
What kind of items are you looking for?
As our focus is on children (aged 0 to 16), we seek clothes, storybooks and toys. If you have other items that you think could benefit someone else, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are in Singapore, you can organise a donation drive at your office or school by dropping us an email at email@example.com and we will work out a date for you.
We donate to charities, who will pass it on to individuals in need. Please make sure that items donated are functional (i.e., would you want to receive the item in that condition?) as we would like to minimise time and money wasted in repairing and sorting the items. Our goal is to ship the items to people in need ASAP.
We may also mobilise our volunteers to assist in the quality check, sorting and packing of the items at your premise.
We humbly request our donors to finance the delivery of the goods to our partnering charities. As a nonprofit, our revenue stream comes only from the simulated social experiences we conduct and volunteer training sessions for institutions.
We are currently adopting a Just In Time model where delivery and redistribution happens within the same week to minimise storage space and cost.
