Our goal is simple we want to meet real needs, for real people in real time!
We believe people would help their neighbor in need and we act as a hub of communication facilitating people coming together to help their community. Here's how it works.Verified non-profits submit a specific need, we post the need in this centralized location the need will then feed to Facebook and twitter, if someone can meet the need they reply. When the need is met we all celebrate.
Here is what you should do, add yourself to our Twitter feed, Facebook account, or sign up for direct messages through email or text "realneeds" to 77948 to receive messages directly to your mobile phone. When a need comes around we will post it, if you can meet the need reply. If you can't ignore it, or share it with friends.
A newly-married couple needs two junior beds and two car seats for their two-year-old twin boys. Until recently, they have been displaced from their home and have been forced to live about two hours apart until the father found work. At present, they are living together again as the father has found full-time employment, and the mother stays at home with the twins. They need junior beds and bedding since the bedrooms in their home are small. They would also appreciate the gift of two car seats so they can safely transport their boys.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a pick-up of your donation. Smaller items may be dropped off at the Real Life office at 317 W 6th St., Suite 201, in Moscow, Monday–Thursday, 9 am – 4 pm.
We had an overwhelming response to this request and were able to get both families exactly what they needed!
A woman in Moscow has recently taken her youngest two grandchildren (ages 1 and 2) into her care after their mother was placed in jail. The children’s mother (her daughter) will be serving her sentence for several years. This grandmother has no car and is in need of a double stroller so she can transport the children around town by bus or by walking. She also has some back problems, and a double stroller would enable her to move the children more easily.
A young couple in Cottonwood, ID, is expecting a second child and needs a double stroller for their two children. They are deeply committed to having the wife stay home as much as possible to raise their sons. The gift of a double stroller would be truly appreciated!
A couple in Colfax is having a baby, due on September 11. This couple had not been expecting this latest addition to their family and had already given away the baby items of their older kids. Being a low-income family, they do not have enough money to purchase items for their new baby. They would truly appreciate gifts of a crib or playpen, a bassinet, clothes, blankets, a swing, a car seat, a bouncer, a baby carrier, toys, and baby care items, such as diapers and wipes.
Please contact email@example.com to arrange for a pick-up of your donation. Smaller items may be dropped off at the Real Life on the Palouse office at 317 W. 6th Street; Suite 201 in Moscow Monday-Thursday from 9-4.
We previously posted the following request to our Real Needs family. It states that a dryer had already been found for this single mom. When the dryer was hooked up, it was found to be non-operational. We had a group of individuals who purchased a washer, but she is in need of a functioning dryer.
ORIGINAL POST: A young single mom in Lewiston is in need of a washer. (We already found a dryer for her.) She has been finding it difficult to go to the laundromat with a two-year-old child in tow since she does not have a car. She has tried paying for her own washer and dryer through Rent-A-Center, but could not keep up with the payments. She has been diagnosed with bipolar and borderline personality disorder, and has no close friends or relatives who can assist her. We can help ease some of the difficulties of this young mother and her child by finding a washer for them.
Thank to to everyone who responded to help this man get a pair of shoes!
A local man needs a pair of casual work shoes (size 16). He works mostly from home, but goes into the office once a week and needs to be presentable on these days. For the past six months, he’s been wearing used shoes obtained from the Salvation Army, but they are beginning to be problematic. A new pair of shoes would be very helpful for him!
Donations may be dropped off Mon-Thur from 8:30am-5:00pm at the Real Life on the Palouse offce at 317 West 6th Street, suite 201 in Moscow.
Thank you to everyone who helped this man start over!
A man who was once homeless has recently moved to Moscow and has found housing in a mobile home. He needs basic necessities to furnish the home, such as a standard-size mattress with a frame, new bedding including a mattress pad, sheets, blankets, and pillows. Plain wooden chairs without fabric or upholstery would also be appreciated. He also needs clothes of any type. Shirt and jacket size: 4XL. Pants or shorts size: 56” waist, 34” length.
Peniel Crossing is a sheltering-mentoring home for women and children. The house is located in Moscow and provides a place for women and children as they recover from the hardships of life. Recently, their refrigerator has stopped functioning. With five children in the house, they need a new refrigerator (or someone who can fix their old refrigerator) so that their milk and food do not spoil. Please help us provide a refrigerator for Peniel Crossing as they unselfishly open their home and hearts to women and children who have no other place to stay.
Thank you to everyone who has come forward to help this family! We received multiple offers of payment so the mom can keep the set she has already started started paying on.
