Do you have clothes, furniture or other things you don’t use anymore, but could be useful for someone else? Do you also find it hard to find the time or opportunity to give them to charity, even though you want to? Then Tiptapp is the solution for you!
To make it super easy to give to charity, we have set up a “pilot project” in cooperation with Myrorna and Röda Korset. If you live in Stockholm and have an iPhone, it is now possible for you to send your belongings to these organisations. Tiptapp to charity is as easy to use as getting something picked up and brought away using “Tap away” or getting something delivered using “Tiptapp Here-to-there”.
Take a picture of the things you want to ”Tiptapp” to charity

Pay with the press of a button when you receive a confirmation that the delivery is done
Currently two charity shops are included in the “Tiptapp to charity” project. The Röda Korset shop on Hornsgatan 54 in Södermalm and the Myrorna shop on Kolargatan 2 in Ropsten.
It is really important that the items you send to our Charity Organisation Partners are sellable and in good condition. Larger items like furniture will be examined and the staff at the shop will determine if the item is sellable or not. Larger items that are considered unsellable will be rejected.
Please use the “Tiptapp away” feature in the app for items that cannot be reused and that should go to recycling, so that we make sure everything ends up in its right place!
Larger items such as sofas, bed frames and large furniture should be only sent to Myrorna.
Everything you send to charity should be fully functionable and in good condition.
It is easier to handle your items if you sent them in a box or in a carton, instead of a large garbage bag.
Make sure to pack them with care so they won’t break during transportation. Wrapping porcelain and glass in paper will prevent the staff from cutting themselves when they unpack.
If electronic devices are given please make sure they function. Non-functioning electronic devices should be recycled.
Old toys can contain harmful chemicals. If they have an unpleasant smell, please do not send them to charity. Instead, send them to a recycling centre using the Tap away feature in the app.
Everything you give to charity should be complete. Games and puzzles that have missing parts cannot be sold.
Books cannot be sold if pages are missing or if great amounts of notes have been taken in them.
Encyclopedias aren’t used today. These should be sent to the recycling centre, using the Tap away feature in the app.
