We’re looking to put this stuff to good use and raise some money for something we feel good about. To do do this, our strategy is to create things that people will want to have in their lives. We’re thinking furniture pieces, art objects, decorations, games, desk items, etc, but there’s really no limited provided the pieces meet the majority of the criteria below.
Note: Our materials catalog is setup as a store to help us keep track of what is available. You will not proceed with a purchase; this is for viewing purposes only. After viewing the materials available and seeing what you’d be interested in using for your project, fill out this webform.
STEP 2. WORK UP A GOOD IDEA
We’ll be judging the value of each proposal based on the following criteria:
DELIGHT & UTILITY. Extra thumbs up for things that make you smile, open your thinking or brighten your day. Similarly, utilitarian value is always appreciated. Even better, do both!
RESOLUTION. Does it have a chance to be beautiful? Could it function well? A proposal is not expected to show a fully developed/resolved piece, but it certainly needs to be on its way in that direction.
LONGEVITY. Will this piece stand the test of time or still just end up in the landfill?
REALIZED POTENTIAL. Does it capture the true potential of the source material?
EFFICIENCY. How efficiently does it use the source material or how much ‘new’ waste does it create?
FEASIBILITY. Lastly, the idea has got to be doable with the time and resources available. Super important.
STEP 3. TELL US ABOUT IT
Once you strike on an idea (or ideas) that you like, make a sketch, model or drawing and put some thought into the other submission requirements outlined here. Fill out this handy submittal form, make a doodle and send it to us by the 11th of September. We’ll review all the proposals we receive, and a small panel of us will decide which ideas make the most sense for the yard sale -- once that’s done, it’ll be time to get to work!
