eBay Community Raises Over $600K for Hurricane Harvey Relief

By: eBay News Team

In just over three days we met our match maximum of $250K, and will donate an additional $100K to support disaster relief.

In the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, eBay mobilized to activate our platform to help those in need. We pledged to match eBay users’ donations up to $250,000 – and in just over three days, thanks to the generosity of the eBay community, we met our match maximum.

As of 6 a.m. PT on August 31, a total of $252,768 was contributed by 5,861 donors.

eBay has also donated an additional $100,000 to Red Cross, Direct Relief, Save the Children and Team Rubicon. These organizations support disaster relief efforts in Texas and throughout the U.S.

As the Gulf Coast region continues to face ongoing flooding and rainfall, we are committed to supporting ongoing relief efforts. We invite you to join us in this effort by donating here.
