The Freecycle Network
February 16, 2010

Save yourself a lot of headaches and forget joining the freecycle network. If you wish to save things from the landfills, join any group you can find in your area listed on any (or all) of the following: www.sharingisgiving.org/ www.reuseitnetwork.org/ http://www.rubbermulch.com/ If you want to read additional eye-opening material, This was written in 2006 and it's still applicable: As I said in the beginning of this message, save yourself a lot of headaches and just STAY AWAY from the freecycle network.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen this organization repeat the same behaviors time and again. What's the definition of insanity.......... Repeating the same behaviors time and again and expecting different results

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get rid of their so-called BOD and the executive director and take it back to a free, grass-roots organization. No attempt at copyrights and certainly no salaries for anyone

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Absolutely nothing (and before you jump the conclusion that I did something wrong, think again. All I did was start asking questions)

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Turncoats, talking out of both sides of their mouth. They'll tell you what a good friend they are, but they don't know you when you're gone.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

This organization doesn't need ten cents much less ten million bucks. It was run on yahoogroups free of charge, they didn't need the thousands of dollars they've spent SO FAR on a website, just to give away free things.

Ways to make it better...

I'd never have gotten involved with them in the first place

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Too numerous to try to list. Insufficient number of characters allowed.
