Last weekend I placed a 'Wanted' advertisement on our local Freecycle website asking for a medium size dog bed for our dog. I knew that in a few months the weather would start to cool down and he wouldn't want to be sleeping on the concrete.
I had a number of replies and could easily have collected about 8 or so of these dog beds from generous group members.

I chose the closest to where I lived to also save on the cost of petrol to pick it up.
This is the one that I picked up and we were lucky enough that it also had a cover, which is in dire need of a good scrubbing, but with the weather being so wet at the moment and the fact that the dog already loves his new bed, I'm going to have to steal it from him over the weekend, clean it and dry it quickly in the sun if we get any so he can have it back.
We have also collected other items from Freecycle like a TV for my son who is moving out of home soon and some text books for university. We have also given things away like a set of drums, furniture and moving boxes.
Freecycle has organizations in different countries around the world. You can do an internet search to find one near you however if you follow the link below it will get you started. It really is a wonderful resource.
