1step2be is completely free portal which combined features of both fundraising and crowdfunding into one. 1step2be is dedicated to helping charities and those in need. Donors are able to fundraise for charities and those in need without spending a single pound. 1step2be is based on the innovative process of textile monetisation, whereby clothes are turned into money and donated to the desired charity or fundraiser.
We believe that every person matters, and the smallest of gestures may significantly help someone in need. We prove everyday that "THERE'S ONLY 1STEP 2BE CHARITABLE". Believe that "YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IF YOU TRY!"

Using 1step2be is and always will be free. There are no fees nor commissions. We always transfer 100% of the amount raised by a Donor through textile monetization.

This is how it works at present and it will work in the future!
