Why We Do It

I have a dream, to sell my unwanted stuff for charity…

This is literally where it all started. Yasmin Grigaliunas did a spring clean and decided to hold a garage sale to sell the family ‘stuff’, then donate the money to charity.  She put the call out to her friends to see if anyone else wanted to clean out their homes.  They did!!  And so did their friends!!  Soon there were hundreds of people wanting to do the same thing, many of whom Yasmin had never met.  And before Yas knew it, the World’s Biggest Garage Sale was born!
