ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Good360 today announced that the nonprofit leader in product philanthropy will be launching in Australia later this year.
"For more than 30 years, Good360 has been connecting those who have with those who need," said Cindy Hallberlin, president and CEO of Good360. "With more than 600,000 nonprofit organizations across Australia and a critical need for an efficient, charitable solution for corporation's inventory management, our model and mission lends itself perfectly to expanding."
Alison Covington, an Australian businesswoman with a strong background in logistics, recognized this need and reached out to Good360 in 2012 expressing interest in expanding the brand and logistics model overseas.
"Starting Good360 Australia is a legacy to my children and their generation," said Covington, director of Good360 Australia. "I envision a world for them where, like recycling, corporate product giving becomes a habit. I am thrilled to bring this innovative nonprofit to Australia in an effort to divert excess inventory from landfills and deliver much needed product to underserved communities."
When Good360 launches in Australia later this year, Australian companies of all sizes will have a charitable inventory solution for the first time. Most importantly, nonprofits nationwide will gain access to vital products enabling them to save money, expand programs and impact communities.
