'Tis the Season to #ReGiftForGood

Startup WebThriftStore Launches Campaign to Inspire Generosity Turning Unwanted Gifts Into Cash for Charities

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 25, 2013) - WebThriftStore, an online charity fundraising platform, today announced the launch of its #ReGiftForGood campaign to entice people to donate their unwanted holidays gifts to charity.

In the past, regifters were shunned as outcasts, forced to carry out their regifting misdeeds in dark alleyways while wearing disguises. And woe be the regifter who forgot to remove the nametag before doing the regifting -- they would never live it down.

But fear no more! Regifting has never been more socially acceptable. You no longer have to feel bad about regifting that sweater or those gift cards you will never use. #ReGiftForGood TODAY by donating that unneeded gift to a nonprofit at WebThriftStore, where it will be bought by someone who actually wants it, with the sales proceeds benefiting charity. You can even choose the cause that your regifting will support!

Now, even if your regifting is discovered by the original gifter while they are shopping on WebThriftStore, you can face them honestly and guilt-free. You were only thinking of THEM when you regifted their gift, because you knew they would appreciate that the proceeds are supporting a good cause. Everyone wins -- you, the original gifter, and especially the charity.

"Everyone has received an unwanted holiday gift at some point," said WebThriftStore CEO Doug Krugman. "Everyone knows that awkward feeling where you have to pretend that you like that shirt that you don't need or that perfume that you're allergic to. Now you have a place to regift them and feel good about it! We've turned regifting into a truly rewarding experience at WebThriftStore."
