  1. I am moving from my place in Kanata in the spring of 2018. I have books and magazines I could donate to your orgnization.

    You would have to pick them up however.

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Hi Bruce, thank you for your message. I checked around and there is only one charity I could find that will pick up both books and magazines in Kanata. That is Saint Vincent de Paul Society. When I called to verify, Susan offered to contact you directly so I provided her with your e-mail address. You should hear from her shortly. (Note CharityWishList.ca does not collect anything itself, its like a directory.) I hope this is helpful.
      Thanks,
      Michelle Beaupre, Owner, CharityWishList.ca

      • I have 6 or more wine boxes of magazine.
        Mostly Car Magazines and National Geographic, both Regular and Traveler.
        I live in Napean. Do you have any interest in these, or know of a place that would. Thank you for any advice on this matter. I hate the idea of putting them out with the garbage.

        • Hi Carolyn, magazines are harder to rehome. I have left a message at an elementary school to see if they can use the magazines for their arts and crafts / after 4 program for reading/cut out for collages projects. You may also want to try someplace like the Royal Canadian Legion – they may be able to offer the magazines in their legion halls to give to vets who come by. I’ll contact you by email when I hear back. – Michelle

    • Hi Leslie! Thank you very much for letting me know about Twice Upon A Time. I verified them against the CRA website and I have added their information to CharityWishList.ca Thank you, what a great charity! = Michelle Beaupre, Owner CharityWishlist.ca

  3. Hello Leslie,

    We have a significant quantity of used magazines including “Our Canada”, Canadian Geographic”, “Cottage Life”, “Air Force Magazine”, and “National Geographics”. We think they can be of some use to some organizations but not sure what that would be. We can deliver them to any Ottawa/Gatineau group that would be interested in them.

    I have mystery books – Patterson, Cornell, Hoag, Grisham to name a few. Lots of hardcovers. Where could I donate them?
