Do you have a storage or a garage? See what you can spare. Things that you have not been using for years. Because if we all start cleaning-out our closets, that old cabinet or those toys that nobody glances at, might be worth a high-tech research centre! Place an advertisement of the things that you can spare on www.marktplaats.nl/kika. The money from the sale will go straight to KiKa’s bank account. Off course you can also buy things yourself because all proceeds will go to KiKa!
