An unique concept of buying and selling goods online.
What is Buy and Sell for Syria?
Buy and Sell for Syria (BS4S) provides an unique platform where the community can contribute to aid in Syria by buying and selling goods online. 100% of all proceeds go to selected projects of UK based registered charities operating 100% donation policies.
BS4S was established in 2013 as an initiative to respond to the call of the Syrian people by and for the local public and now has branches in Birmingham, London and the Netherlands.
What can you do?
We planned to start a project that would touch the heart of everyone of us. Every day the disaster in Syria gets worse. Ask yourself: what does this do to me?
The idea of BS4S is to provide the public –both individuals and businesses – a platform to contribute to aid for Syria. Not by asking for financial donations, but by providing an unique shopping experience: by selling and buying items you will directly be aiding the people of Syria.
Individuals: how does it work?
BS4S asks every single one of you to upload an item(s) – new or second hand- to be sold for Syria on the BS4S channels. Items can be directly uploaded to the BS4S Facebook pages, currently in both Birmingham and London. To sell your item(s) through the BS4S Whatsapp groups contact below phone number.

For detailed instructions on how to upload, sell and pay for items see below poster.
Businesses: how does it work?
If you own or are part of a business or company you can offer your products and services to be sold by BS4S. You will inform BS4S about the product or service you wish to offer and BS4S will offer the item(s) to the public. Benefits are: free advertising, reaching a wider audience and selling your products. We request businesses to invest in those benefits by offering an item(s) or service(s) for donation or by contributing a minimum of 20% of the sales value.
Contact: email@example.com or BS4S phone 07908403503 to discuss your donation and/or contribution.
For detailed instructions on how to submit information about your product and business and payments, see below poster.
