Overstock.com Announces Partnership with Give Back Box
SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Online shopping site, Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSTK), today announces a partnership which will provide its customers a new way to easily donate their gently used household items through Give Back Box, a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitate charitable donations.
Through the partnership, Overstock.com gives customers the ability to re-use the box in which their order arrived, along with Give Back Box's free shipping label, to ship gently used household items directly to non-profit organizations across the U.S.
"Our culture at Overstock is focused around doing the right thing and giving back to the community," said Stormy Simon, president of Overstock. "The partnership with Give Back Box is an opportunity to assist our customers in doing just that. Buy a fashionable new dress on Overstock and send an older one from your closet to someone in need."
The process begins when a customer shops at Overstock. As the customer's order is packaged for shipping, program materials are inserted into the shipping box. The material contains Overstock's request to support environmental and social causes through the donation of used items directly to worthy organizations.
"Through this partnership we can encourage millions of customers to donate in a way that's convenient for them," added Simon. "It's too easy not to participate."
