Tomball nonprofit Resale with a Purpose nears $1 million donation goal a year early

Resale with a Purpose donated $12,500 to Cherish Our Children Inc., putting the nonprofit one step closer to its $1 million donation goal.

Resale with a Purpose donated $12,500 to Cherish Our Children Inc., putting the nonprofit one step closer to its $1 million donation goal.

Brad Bartlett, board president of Resale with a Purpose, pledged a goal in 2014 to donate $1 million to local charities by 2020—but the nonprofit will meet that goal by the end of 2019, one year early, he said.

Resale with a Purpose is a nonprofit organization that donates 100% of its proceeds to Tomball- and Magnolia- area charities, including Society of Samaritans, TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries, Abandoned Animal Rescue and the No More Victims program of Cherish Our Children Inc., Bartlett said.

"Our goal of giving $1 million by 2020 was a very bold goal. We [had] just moved into our new location in January 2014, and we had not made a single sale at that location," he said in an email.

As of the first half of 2019, the nonprofit has donated more than $900,000, Bartlett said, which puts the organization on track to meet its $1 million goal before 2020.

Houston-based Cherish Our Children Inc.—one of the nonprofits supported by Resale with a Purpose—received a $12,500 grant in early July for its No More Victims program, which provides resources and support for teens who have one or more incarcerated parents.

"We are so very appreciative of Resale with a Purpose and the way it has backed our mission. In many ways, we are working with some of the most at-risk children in Texas and this support makes it possible for us to be successful," said Ken Wells, Cherish Our Children Inc. president, in a July 8 news release.

Resale with a Purpose's resale store is located at 28583 Hwy. 249, Tomball.
