Bin Donated Secret Millionaire Party

CHICAGO, June 15, 2012

Bin Donated Inc. announced today that it is one of the three organizations featured in the upcoming Chicago episode of ABC’s Secret Millionaire to air on Sunday July 1st, 2012.  This is the first time Chicago has been featured in the hugely, popular ABC series.

Bin Donated’s founder & CEO, Judson Kinnucan, was filmed last fall for the episode that includes Chicago based millionaire, Steve Kaplan.   

“This whole thing has been incredible! Meeting Steve and being able to show him the insider’s view of Bin Donated is an experience I’ll never forget. His willingness to dig into what we do and why we do it was amazing. Of course, his generosity to help move our mission forward floored us”, said Kinnucan.

The show features, Steve Kaplan, a best-selling author, Tony Nominated Producer, renowned business and success expert and public speaker. Steve volunteered undercover and spent several days driving around with Judson to see, first-hand, the work that Bin Donated does.

“It is amazing the wide impact such a small organization like Bin Donated has had in their short history.  The aggregator model they have developed to collect discarded items for reuse at the scale they are doing is truly innovative”, said Kaplan.

Bin Donated launched in late 2009 and in a very short time has become the go-to organization for hotels, companies, high-rise residential buildings and other organizations in applying sustainability principles of recycling for reuse and redistributing to non-profits that provide the underserved and underprivileged communities of Chicago.

“Our appearance on Secret Millionaire is wonderful for getting the word out on Bin Donated. However, more importantly, it’s fantastic for Chicago and the many non-profits we serve.  Hopefully, this raises our program awareness so more hotels and companies will join in a dedicated item collection and give back program”, said Geeta Singh, Executive Director of Bin Donated. 

The episode will air on ABC, Sunday July 1st, 2012 at 7pm (cst).  Bin Donated, along with Steve Kaplan and all the organizations featured, will be holding a Chicago’s Secret Millionaire fundraising, viewing party at Moe’s Cantina, River North the evening of July 1st.
