Over 70% of aid during emergencies currently goes to logistics. NeedsList gets the right supplies to the right people at the right time through our e-commerce platform that allows donors to buy supplies from local businesses rather than shipping goods around the world.
Charities post needs
Vetted local charities post their most urgent needs on NeedsList.
Search needs in real time
Users meet needs by purchasing supplies through our ecommerce platform.
Supplies are delivered right to the charity, which distributes them.
“NeedsList provides an innovative opportunity to connect our people to a custom list of remote volunteer opportunities that employees can participate in right from their computer screens to meet the urgent needs of refugees.”
Director of Philanthropy and Inclusion
"We have received so many donations from NeedsList this holiday season. The donations of tents, sleeping bags, handwarmers and coats were much appreciated here in Paris, as the temperatures continue to stay below freezing. Thank you again for creating this amazing platform."
Compassion Without Borders
"I really love NeedsList for a number of reasons. I know exactly what my donation is purchasing and who will benefit. Most importantly, even small donations have an impact, because tangible goods are going directly to the people who need it. NeedsList really helps me to understand the day-to-day issues that refugees and those in disaster areas are facing."
“NeedsList has the potential to be a gamechanger in the field of humanitarian aid.”
