Ebay Giving Works: Clear your clutter, cure some kids, save on taxes

Okay, let's admit it.  We all have a ton of junk in our house that is just taking up space.  Instead of just letting that junk clutter our house, what if we could do something useful with it?  Team Sanfilippo has now teamed up with Ebay to create an online store.  Instead of selling your stuff on Ebay and donating the money to a non-profit, Ebay will now let you designate a non-profit as the recipient of all or part of your sales why proceeds.  Better yet, by allowing Ebay to donate the money, Ebay will waive almost all of the listing fees.

With Ebay and Team Sanfilippo you can turn:


You see, the money from your donated items goes to cure Sanfilippo Syndrome, a deadly childhood disease.

So, why do it this way?  What are the benefits?

Here are just a few:

  • Ebay will track your donations (cash and proceeds from sales) and send you a year end summary for your tax records
  • You get a cool little logo to go beside your sale item and special visibility which helps your item sell
  • Ebay waives the fees associated with selling online, so more money goes to Team Sanfilippo

So how do you get started?  You can start by visiting our online store:

So what are you waiting for?  Get rid of some junk today and help cure our kids!
