Here is a little excerpt below and a link to the full article here.
“And then there’s Goodszilla, founded by Toju Ogbeide. “It comes from the concept of a marketplace, that uses buying and selling of goods to do good at the world,” Ogbeide said.
Goodszilla allows users — whether everyday people or retailers — to sell products and donate a portion of their sales to a charity of their choice.
When Ogbeide first moved to Canada from Nigeria, he got involved in volunteering at food banks, Casey House and other organizations. When he was decluttering his place for a move, he thought, “how can I monetize these items (and) actually support the organizations that I’ve worked at in the past?”
He noticed auctions were a popular way charities raised money, and he knew that funds could be more valuable than physical things, so he thought a platform where all of that was combined would be neat.”
