Today, eBay for Charity, a platform that easily connects buyers and sellers with the causes they care about, announced its partnership with GLAAD, the world’s largest LGBTQ media advocacy group, to launch a campaign in celebration of Pride Month this June.
From Monday, June 11 at 8 a.m. PDT – Thursday, June 21 at 8 a.m. PDT shoppers can visiteBay.com/GLAAD to enter a truly unique sweepstakes as well as bid on exclusive auction items and experiences donated by their favorite celebrities. 100% of proceeds from this campaign will benefit GLAAD, a nonprofit whose goal is to accelerate LGBTQ acceptance by working with content creators in film, television, music, digital, and more, as well as the news media, to ensure fair and accurate LGBTQ representation.
“In partnership with our employee-led Communities of Inclusion like United in Pride, which focuses on the LGBTQ community, we are committed to making our workplace safe, inclusive and free of judgment and discrimination for everyone at eBay,” said Damien Hooper-Campbell eBay’s Chief Diversity Officer. “By partnering with GLAAD through this charity campaign, it is yet another way we’re able to help advocate, educate and celebrate diversity of the LGBTQ community within eBay and beyond.”
