What is NBC’s Share and Tell?
Did you know that for every pound of new goods produced, 71 pounds of waste are generated during manufacturing? This Earth Week, NBCUniversal is partnering with the sharing site yerdle to help you minimize your impact on the planet by sharing your stuff. One person’s stuff is another person’s story!
Here’s how it works.1) Join or host a Share & Tell Party (click the “Join the Party” button in the app below).
2) Post your stuff to share with friends. Discover other items that are up for grabs.
3) Tell the story of your sharing experiences on your favorite social media site. #ShareandTell.
What is yerdle?
Yerdle is the new mission-driven California Benefit corporation that’s out to help people share with their friends rather than buying things new. On yerdle, friends post items they're willing to give away or loan, search for items they're looking to get, and nab the things they want. Simple.
Why Host a Share and Tell?
Protect the planet, save money, give gifts to your friends and find things you want. Hosting a Share and Tell means inviting your Facebook friends to share things you want. Parties can either be hosted in-person or online, it’s up to you!
Okay, so now I have definitions out of the way. Let's talk a little bit about what the big deal is. Share & Tell is the perfect way to to reduce and reuse. I actually do this from time to time within my own family (or amongst friends). We have never had an actual party, but we "re-gift" items now and then, and I do my part to try to giveaway things I am not going to use to someone who will enjoy them. At first, it might sound crazy. I used to be ashamed of buying things second-hand, but in recent years (and in light of our economy), I think it makes perfect sense.
In honor of this promotion, guess what--you have the chance to win! That's right! Read about what you might win!

I have noticed a lot of people struggling to copy the tweet URL for their giveaway entries.

I just wish the person had spelled tutorial correctly, but the info is correct.). Please make sure your entries are verifiable, and don't cheat. There have been a lot of cheaters in my giveaways recently.
