Doorstep Donations

They didn’t knock on anyone’s door or interrupt anyone’s meal. Volunteers in Chilliwack, B.C. dropped off donation bags for residents to fill.

Bags were hung from doorknobs and all residents had to do was pack them and set them out for collection a few days later.

People could put anything they wanted into the bags and participants liked the idea that there was no pressure.

Are you more likely to donate if a bag was left at your door?

That’s a wonderful idea and I would welcome this kind of campaign any day.

I would gladly donate this way, on a monthly basis would be great. Good way to collect donations and a great way for me to stop collecting things I do not need. I think it would be wonderful, the only issue I forsee would be finding drivers and trucks for pickup. There is no longer any donation pickup in Victoria due to the cost. However, this is an amazing idea.
