With her Masters in Nonprofit Leadership and Philanthropy and over 14 years of experience working with charitable organisations, Jen is passionate about raising funds for children's projects. Her most recent role was as the Operations Manager with Gulf for Good, who raise funds for children's charity projects around the world through adventure challenges.
During this time, Jen learned that the biggest barrier for great projects is funding. Yet, there are so many wonderful supportive people interested in giving their used items to a good cause...
With other Gulf for Good supporters, Clare Hartnett (our local sponsor), Nickey Jones (provided the start up loan and support), Christie Campita (endless volunteering support) and so many countless others,Thrift for Good began in February 2020 and online in April 2020.
Thrift for Good is a social enterprise born from the vision of a world with zero waste where everyone has what they need to thrive. It exists to fuel meaningful projects by reselling donated items and help projects and people in need through donating on the items when requested.
