It’s never been easier to connect with others locally and around the world! From Krrb to AirBnB and Lyft, peer to peer communities are popping up everywhere and for everything. This time around we’re looking at Impossible, Closet Collective and Wunwun as ways to share kindness, fashion and even errands. Read on to find out more.

For Deliveries

New on the scene is Wunwun, a peer-to-peer delivery service. Wunwun Helpers zoom around the city on bikes, delivering purchases from local stores and restaurants within an hour. Users place an order through Wunwun which makes the purchase and delivery on their behalf.

Why We Like It: Although it’s only available in San Francisco and New York City, we like the convenience of late-hour deliveries. Also, we’ll take anything that supports shopping from local and independent stores.

For Sharing Fashion

For those who are fashionably insatiable, Closet Collective lets you rent from the closets of your peers. From handbags to shoes to dresses and coats, this sharing economy connects fellow fashionistas. You can be a borrower or a lender (which monetizes your closet) as additional income on designer brands.

Why We Like It: It’s a cool and relatively inexpensive way to try designer brands. What makes more sense than sharing those items in your closet that you rarely wear? Closet Collective makes it easy with insurance and free shipping.

This new social network by model and actress Lily Cole has us believing in the Impossible. The site allows people to ask for something they need, or offer what they can give for free—without expecting anything in return. The only accepted currency is a thank you.

Why We Like It: We like their mission—to create a global community who helps each other out by sharing time, skills and things. This altruistic network has us feeling good about helping strangers.
