I have a vision of a social network that can attract many companies from around the world. I would like to see them form one Group. I would like them to be able to list items they have that they may need to discard due to overstock or slight damage, etc. (Donations of medicines, used medical devices, blankets, etc.).
I would like others to be able to visit that group and move these items where they would do some good.
Companies throw out many items each day! For example - A major company refused delivery of $30,000.00 of flowers, because the temperature in the delivery truck was several degrees off. The manager then donated them to a local hospital and brightened the lives of many! This can be done!
