Last week I wrote a Binders Review post, where I reviewed the different binders I have used, and then had a small giveaway as an attempt to help others who might appreciate a free binder. Unfortunately I’m only one person of one size with 5 binders, which means some people still need a binder.
Given the interest in the Binder Giveaway, I’ve compiled a list of sites that provide such services consistently, so that everyone who needs a binder can actually get one. All of these sites seem to have been fairly active within the last month or so. However, I’ve never actually gone through and purchased/donated/received anything, so I can’t vouch for any of them.
You must meet strict qualification requirements in order to receive a binder. That is, you must prove that you need a binder (not just want it, need it) and that you absolutely cannot afford one. Remember, Underworks binders are only $30 – this is not an impossible amount to save up for most people. Based in the US.
People here are buying and selling general FTM articles, such as packers and binders. Seems to be US based.
From the site:
The Pay-It-Forward binder program is a used binder service that provides used donated binders to guys in the Australian and New Zealand region who need a chest binder and who are struggling financially or cannot obtain a binder through regular channels.
This can include students, Centrelink recipients, individuals who do not have their own income or do not have the support of their family to access binders.
This service is based on honesty and should not be accessed by those who are just looking to save some money.
I couldn’t find any information on the actual site, morf.org.uk, but there seems to be a Binder Exchange Scheme here. It’s based in the UK.
They’re on tumblr, and provide Binder and Packer donations.
Just what the title says.
This one has more general information on binders and binding. It’s a classic, so I might as well include it.
Please share your comments if you do have experience with any of these sites, or any other links. I’ll update it as I gather more information. And pass this along to others!
