WHOA! Really great article from Go Nomad! BIG thank you to Max Hartshorne and Olivia Gilmore for bringing this together. We love that you captured our Reclaimed for Good story so well.
“The Unclaimed Baggage Center prides itself on the philosophy of giving back. The center works with charity partners locally, regionally, and internationally to donate millions of dollars worth of unsellable clothing and equipment to hundreds of thousands of needy people. The center works to reclaim otherwise unsellable items, such as eyeglasses and wheelchairs, which are often rebuilt for handicapped children.
Millions of dollars worth of medical supplies and clothing have been donated to developing countries to charities like the Salvation Army and Lions Club. So, if you happen to lose track of your luggage and never see it again, don’t sweat it, your stuff might actually be helping someone else in need. At least that’s one way to think of it!”
