What is Sell That Thing?
In communities where postnatal care provision is low, vital health information isn't reaching mums. Team Mum runs projects in Kenya to arm young mums with the information and support they need to keep themselves and their babies safe.
To raise money for Team Mum, we are teaming up with Shpock to run Sell That Thing. The concept is simple: Find something old that you don't use anymore, sell it, donate a percentage or all of the profits to Team Mum. This is especially great for parents who might have old toys and clothes laying around which they can get rid of, all whilst supporting mums in Kenya.
De-clutter for good, Sell That Thing for Team Mum!
What is Shpock?
Shpock is the car boot sale app that allows users to buy, sell or give away items in their local area. They share our values and want to help mums and babies, so have teamed up with us for their first ever charity partnership, to run Sell That Thing.
List your unwanted items on Shpock via their app, and you can donate all or some of the proceeds to Team Mum.
How to take part:
It's super simple:
Find something old that you don't want anymore.
List it on Shpock and sell your item.
Donate a percentage or all of the proceeds to Team Mum.
Why should you support Team Mum?
In Kenya, one in 26 babies don't survive to see their first birthday. Some of Kenya’s youngest mums are left without access to vital health services. Without expert health information, pregnant girls and their babies are at risk. Your fundraising will help us run projects to arm the youngest and most vulnerable mums with the health information and support they need to keep themselves, and their babies safe.
What will my donations be spent on?
Child.org support mums and babies with programmes like our pregnant women's groups and our baby box project to help keep them and their babies safe. That's why we refer to our fundraisers as "in Team Mum"!
Can I use another selling app instead of Shpock?
We are teaming up with Shpock exclusively for Sell That Thing and for every item sold on Shpock, they will donate the seller fees to Team Mum. This means if all our supporters use Shpock to Sell That Thing, we will raise more money for our pregnancy support groups.
