By Sarah HuttonA new site has launched that accepts PayPal donations.
The new donation platform called Donate to My Mattress (DIMM) was launched by a group of users called “The Team” and aims to help people who have donated their mattresses.
The team says it hopes to reach out to a broader group of people, from students to artists to those who have given away their furniture.
“We are a bunch of friends who all love to give and are always looking for new ways to help each other out.
So, we decided to make a mattress donation platform and it’s been a really exciting experience to work on and we’ve learnt so much about how people can use the platform,” the site says.
The platform has a number of features that make it easy to make donations.
“It’s easy to set up and use.
All you need to do is add a link to your account.
When you click on the link, you can then select how much you want to donate.
You can choose to donate via PayPal, Amazon, Bank Transfer, Credit Card or Paypal,” the team explains.
“When you make a donation, it’s sent directly to your bank account or to your Paypal account.
You may also be asked to enter your PayPal password for verification.”DIMMs donation platform is powered by an algorithm that will use your donation amount to create an account with PayPal.
Once you have a PayPal account, you may add a donation link to the Donate button to make your donation more clear.
“If you don’t want to provide a donation address, we will use a randomly generated donation address from the Paypal database,” the page explains.
The team explains that there are three options for the donation address: a “real” address, a “hidden” address or an “attempted” address.
“We will never use the same email address as you, and will use the email address that you provided when you donated your mattress,” the Donatation button explains.DIMms site has more than 1,500 donations available at the moment, including donations from more than 500 people.
“There are currently more than 150,000 people who want to give away their mattress, and more than 2.6 million people have donated,” the platform says.
“In our experience, people who donate mattresses are very active on our platform, and it has become an incredibly important part of their lives,” the Team said.
“It’s a real privilege to be part of this project and we’re excited to have this opportunity to bring more people into our fold.”
The Team, which is based in Brighton, England, has been raising money on the platform for a few months now, but it wasn’t until this week that they launched the donation service to the public.
“Donate to Your Mattress has always been about making the donation process as easy as possible.
Now we’ve opened our doors to the wider world and hope to reach people with a wider range of options,” the website explains.
It’s clear that DIMM is not alone in its attempt to change the way we give.
Last year, The Guardian ran a report about the way in which a crowdfunding platform for mattresses is making it easier for people to donate their furniture to charity.
“Mattress-donating websites are already making it possible for people with money to donate furniture in an effort to make an impact, and that’s a great thing,” The Guardian’s Rachel Blyth wrote.
“But what’s new is the way people are starting to realise that there’s a whole host of different ways in which the platform is changing the way they can contribute.”
“The Team wants to do something even better,” the company continues.
“I hope that we can take our efforts to DIMMs and make it even easier for anyone to donate mattress or any other furniture.”
