CHARITY TAXI

Charity Taxi  is a multipronged initiative that combines elements of social care, community building and social sensitization. By connecting the needs of the supporters and those supported, we are working toward a more cohesive and sustainable society.

WHO WE ARE?

The idea to set up Charity Taxi is rooted in the 2015 refugee crisis, when we witnessed a massive civic collaboration to help those in need. The willingness of this crowd to extend a helping hand was both moving and inspiring. It proved that a multitude of people were willing and ready to help in a multitude of ways, and it showed that Budapest had incredible potential when it came to donations. However, we felt and saw that many people never made it to action from intention. Thus, the idea was born to make it easier to donate and by picking up donations from people’s homes.

In the past seven years, the charity collected donations from more than 3000 households in the capital city and delivered it to 100 different towns with the help of 600 volunteers.

SMALLER DONATION COLLECTION

You can help by donating smaller items to families in need! 

Most importantly, we collect only clean, flawless donations that are in good condition, such as chindrens’ toys, kitchen equipment, household textiles, non-perishable food and other smaller items.

Our next collection day is on Sunday, the 24th of March, 2024.
Click here if you want to read more details about donations and to register for our pick-up service. Our pick-up area is only within Budapest and the maximum quantity we can take over at a time is the equivalent of 3 pieces of 110 liters bags/boxes (out of which maximum 2 bags can be clothing).

You can also hand over donations personally at our warehouse. Due to the capacity of our warehouse, we can now ONLY accept donations (brought in personally) of school supplies, non-perishable food, kitchen and household equipment, children’s toys and household textiles (ex. towels, sheets, blankets).
