ReThinking The ReStore Pitch

Baldwin& has some strange ideas about motivating people to give household items to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore.

Last time I checked, the ReStore wasn’t seeking used commodes. Gross. No, the ReStore is a great way to support Habitat via contributions of clothes, furniture, golf clubs, computers, etc. There are about 100 other ideas I’d explore before this one.
Of course, it’s better than a straight up retail pitch with no concern for the Habitat brand whatsoever.

DISCLOSURE: On occasion, I do pro-bono communications work for Habitat for Humanity of Collier County.

    I’ve been to 7 other ReStore’s and they all sold used toilets. They’re not gross, they’re clean, and what’s more, they’re not in the landfill.

  2. Hi Kerry,
    I see you work for Habitat, so I’ll take your word for it. Thanks for your input.
