Giving Thoughtfully on Giving Tuesday
By: Remy Pinson, eBay News Team
Explore our Giving Tuesday initiatives and find the perfect gift this holiday season – all while giving back to those who need it most.
To commemorate Giving Tuesday and the spirit of giving, eBay is engaged in several endeavors related to powering giving and doing good. Check out our initiatives – outlined below – designed to make giving back as easy as possible while doing the most possible good. Gift thoughtfully this holiday season.
Gifts That Give Back
Our Gifts that Give Back program allows you to choose to give $25, $50, $75, or $100 to six participating charities:
- American Cancer Society
- American Red Cross
- Habitat for Humanity
- March of Dimes
We have waived seller fees for all of our participating charities, so 100% of your donation will go to the organization of your choice, no strings attached. Upon giving, you will receive a Certificate of Donation via email, which can then be gifted to someone you care for.
Giving Tuesday Sweepstakes
Have you ever wanted to meet Danica Patrick, Michael Phelps, or Rascal Flatts? Have you ever wanted to own a timeless piece of NFL history? Maybe you’d like a chance to get tickets to the Grammys? Bid for a chance to do all of that and more in our eBay for Charity Giving Tuesday Sweepstakes. Proceeds from the auction will benefit participating charities and organizations.
The “#Unselfie” Campaign
We’ve even challenged ourselves to join the effort as well! As part of the “#Unselfie” campaign, we’re encouraging our employees to take a picture of themselves promoting a charity that they hold dear and sharing it on social media. For every “#Unselfie” that’s shared, eBay will give that employee $25 to donate to their charity.
