No, it’s not a new sporting event. It’s a grassroots, online network of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own communities.

Freecycling is simple: If you have something to give away—an old dresser, fabric scraps, or outgrown kids’ clothes—you post an announcement on the Internet.
