Freecycle

Has anybody heard of freecycle? Its like a global but local mutual aid project.

You join your local freecycle email list, then you send a message saying what you need - like a toaster - and if someone has one to give away they will mail you back and you arrange to post/pick up whatever.

Then you can offer anything on the list you dont want or wait till someone asks for something you have and dont want...

Pretty cool project...

Reserch purposes, just like Pete Townshend with his kiddie porn.
