What I learned from our All For Free charity drive

Last week we ran a drive at Carousell that we simply called #AllForFree. I'm sure you guys can figure out what the drive was all about 😆 LOL! We created this drive because we wanted to help used items make their way to the hands of the people who want and need them more...
