Buengo is the place where good things happen. Whether you’re looking to raise money for charity, crowdfund for a good cause, volunteer locally or buy, sell, or swap stuff for free - you’re in the right place! At Buengo, we want to create an app with a community - where people can come to share good news about things happening all over the world.
**SELL STUFF FOR CHARITY**
Post an item for sale on the Buengo marketplace and choose which charity or good cause you would like to donate the proceeds to. Gadgets, clothes, furniture, games, beauty, DIY - it’s all good! When someone buys your item, the proceeds will be transferred directly to the cause - so you can declutter and sell for good!
**BUY GOOD QUALITY SECOND-HAND ITEMS**
On Buengo, the seller doesn’t receive any money from the sale - so you know you’re getting a good deal. Once you buy an item, you know that your money will be helping someone in need, rather than going into the seller’s pocket.
Looking to volunteer for a local charity or community group? Or perhaps you have some spare time and you’d like to help a good cause out remotely? On Buengo, you can browse volunteering opportunities and contact the organisers to get involved. If you can’t find a volunteering opportunity that’s right for you, you can offer your services and wait for a good cause to contact you!
**MONEY DONATIONS WITH NO PLATFORM FEE**
Donate money to your favourite charities and causes safely, via Buengo’s secure payment system. Leave a message of support and gift aid your donation - then watch out for updates about how your donation is being spent!
**GIVE STUFF AWAY FOR FREE**
Buengo is all about reducing waste, something becoming even more important in a world where more and more of us are choosing a zero waste way of life. Got something you don’t need anymore and don’t want to sell? Freecycle it on Buengo! Looking for something specific and don’t want to buy brand new? Browse Buengo for free items or request the item you need from our community!
Charities and good causes can post virtual items on Buengo - whether this is a sleeping bag for a homeless person or a year’s education for a child in Kenya, it’s a great way for supporters to see where their donations are going.
Raising money for a good cause? Crowdfund with Buengo! Create attractive fundraising campaigns and encourage friends, family, and supporters to sell items or donate directly to the cause! Set a fundraising target and watch the progress bar fill up as people start donating! Send updates to your supporters and let them know how their donations are being spent after the campaign ends.
**GOOD NEWS FEED**
Tired of fake news cluttering up your timeline? Buengo is a safe space to share news and ideas about good things happening all over the world. Whether you’ve taken the kids on a beach clean this weekend or you’re a local charity in need of donations, let your supporters know on Buengo. They’ll be able to comment and like your posts, creating a social media community for good.

Completely changed the focus of the app to concentrate on building a community of people wishing to do good.
Everyone can now create stories for the community to enjoy.
We'll be adding the ability to favourite and comment upon stories shortly.
Although it is still possible to help campaigns by donations, sales and purchases these actions have been moved out of the app and onto our payments website. We will be adding many new free ways of helping campaigns, such as volunteering, over the next few versions.
We fixed an annoying login bug.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
