    Moving? Cleaning? Organizing? GET PAID for your stuff!

    Posted: 4/27/15 11:44 AM

    A friend of mine - and husband of a Xavier graduate student - started a local online auction site where he will sell your items then send you a check.  What's even better is he will pick up the items from your home, office, or storage for FREE.  Contact John at 513-206-2278 or john@lookwhatifound.bid and tell him Jeff sent you.

    This could be a great way for you students moving out to make some money on items you don't want to take with you or can't move.  

    Look What I Found is a new servce company, focused on customer service and a quality website.  It was started to fill the gap between EBTH; giving items away to Goodwill or other thrift stores; and going through the hassle of trying to sell items yourself at a garage sale, on ebay, or on Craigslist.  LWIF is looking for items to sell, so give John a call to set up an appointment and get that unwanted and unused stuff out of your space.  Spread the word!

  • The ALL FOR ONE SHOP sells Alta Gracia - 2 days ago | 417 views

    Posted: 4/25/15 1:29 PM

    Alta Gracia is a company that addresses fair-trade work, and one of its missions is to better the lives and maintain the dignity of all their employees. Within their factories of the Dominican Republic, where they have revamped one particular abandoned facility, they changed the face of the facory worker's treatment. The Dominican Republic has high rates of poverty as well as several sweatshops but Alta Gracia establishes better working conditions and provides a living wage (which is estimated over three times that of minimum wage in there) for all their workers.

    Here is a heart-warming video of some workers receiving their first paychecks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LME_YoPsz3c

    Xavier's mission of "Men and Women for others" has some strong ties to maintaining human dignity. The ALL FOR ONE SHOP sells  Alta Gracia apparel with both men and women selections! Consider checking it out at the ALL FOR ONE SHOP in ustation!?
