Shyp is taking its goal to become the Uber of shipping one step further. Following in the footsteps of the transportation app's one-day partnership with the nonprofit organization back in May, Shyp is hooking up free Goodwill donations in LA now through August 6th. This is off the heels of a previous Goodwill collab back on the company's SF stomping grounds.
Here's how it works: select your gently-used clothing and houseware donations, update your Shyp app to the latest version. When you're ready for Shyp to scoop your package (their couriers can take up to two 13-gallon bags per pickup). Tap 'Add Shipment' and select Goodwill as your recipient, snap a photo of your donations, and request the pick up. For optimum closet-cleaning, you can request as many pickups as you'd like.
