Share Your Bounty, Seek Your Needs at egiva.com

Part of a crafty ministry is getting the things you need and giving away the things you don't need. A new free website gives people the opportunity to do just that!

With egiva.com, a person can offer things she doesn't need but is willing to give away, and ask for things she does need. For example, Cathy Crafter may have odds and ends of yarn left over from a variety of projects. She offers them on egiva.com and hears from Annie Artistic, who needs yarn for an upcoming project. Annie picks up the yarn and Cathy has some free space!

Later, Cathy realizes she needs styrofoam meat trays for her Sunday School class project next month. She posts a request on egiva.com and hears from several people who have trays and will give them to her.

The use of egiva.com is free and anyone can register. The site allows people to connect with others in their area to give and receive-furniture, clothing, extra produce from the garden, you name it. Check out the site and share the information with everyone you know.Your church, school, fraternal organization or neighbors can form an egiva group and you can be a member of more than one group.

You'll find more information here.

The site is here.
