Ever wanted to get your hands on Harry Styles’ t-shirt or meet Paul McCartney? Well now you can. eBay’s charitable giving program in the UK is celebrating helping 7,800 UK charities raise more than £50 million by hosting its biggest celebrity auction yet – 50 celebrities, 50 items, 50 causes (ok, maybe even a couple extra for good measure!).

The campaign includes a mix of one-off items and once-in-a-lifetime experiences and brings together famous faces from the world of music, fashion and sports, including One Direction, Henry Holland, Rafael Nadal and Elton John. To get involved, visit www.ebay.co.uk/charity50 from August 22 -September 1 and get bidding.
 
Starting next month, we’re also giving visitors to eBay.co.uk even more opportunities to help us reach our goal of doubling the value donations by 2015 – sell on behalf of your favorite cause or donate at checkout in September for a chance to win a £500 PayPal credit and £1,000 donation to your chosen charity.
