FreeCycle: Finds Another Thankful Participant


We have talked to you before, about the advantages of the Lynchburg group FreeCycle.
FreeCycle is the exchange method, where unwanted things find homes with those who can use what is destined to be thrown away.

In the picture (click to enlarge), is an example of how this works. We were looking through the ads on freecycle. And found seasoned firewood free for the pick up.

We sent off a email and almost before we knew it, we were able to help, a friend get a load of wood for his heating needs next winter. There is a rumor that MOM, one of our contributors, has had a big part in Lynchburg Freecycle. Lynchburg Freecycle is continuing to grow. Everything from cars to school clothes can be found in the posts. They now have 600 members in the Lynchburg area and as people find out about it, the number of members continue to increase.

We have warm thoughts about Lynchburg's Freecycle as does my friend. "Thanks for the wood," he wants to tell the person who offered it.

Bob,

I will admit to being the founder and current co-owner of the Lynchburg Freecycle List. I am glad you were able to help your friend and that is what I love about the list. Everyone and the environment benefit from this great idea.

BTW, The News and Advance will be publishing an article on Lynchburg Freecycle Group Friday, August 19th. Be sure to look for it!
