The Wilderness Foundation UK has recently joined the “eBay for Charity” scheme. This means that for any item you list and sell on eBay, you can decide to give a percentage in support of our work to protect the last of the world’s wild places.
The 1-2-3 of selling for charity
- Once you’re ready to sell your item, go to the Sell hub and select ‘Advanced Sell’.If you’re stuck, you can get some tips on how to list.
- As you’re filling out the details, look out for the charity box just below where you set your price.Select a charity to support and the percentage (10%-100%) of your final selling price that you’d like to donate. We are listed as wildernessfoundationukNote: The minimum donation is £1 per listing.
- Three weeks after your item sells, PayPal Giving Fund (eBay’s partner charity) will automatically collect the donation from you.You can also manage your donations through the ‘My Donations’ section of My eBay, under the My Account tab. Any fee credits will appear on your next invoice.
We will also be listing items for sale from which the proceed will be donated to the Wilderness Foundation UK. The great news is that when we sell items on your behalf and you donate the income to us, we can Gift Aid it too!
Here’s a link to our current listings: http://www.ebay.co.uk/egw/ebay-for-charity/charity-profile/?NP_ID=37291
These are just a few items the staff have contributed to get the ball rolling. In future we will be listing clothes and equipment that would be ideal for anyone joining a wilderness trail – a great way to get good quality used supplies at a fraction of the price of new.
If you would like more information on donating items to sell, Gift Aid and how to sell on our behalf please email firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on 01245 443073.
Thanks for your support. Every penny counts in the fight to preserve wild places and change lives.
