We’ve registered with Mission Fish – ebay’s charity partner website. So now you can sell an item on ebay and donate between 10 and 100 per cent of the proceeds to us – including adding gift aid. You save on the sellers fees too!
To get started add Aniridia Network UK as a favourite charity on your ebay account. Then in ebay click on “Sell” and choose the “Advanced sell” option. On the following screens you’ll be prompted to choose a charity and percentage to donate. The fact that you are donating will appear on your listing to make you look good and publicise us too.
There are fees charged. From the combined donation and the gift aid on it, they take 9%. The rest is passed to us. You’ll also get a refund on the selling fees equal to the percentage you promised to donate.
But you don’t have to sell something. You can also use Mission Fish to simply donate using PayPal. For this there is a fee of 3.75% of the net amount donated (3% gross – the donation plus gift ad).
Do you have anything laying around that you don’t need and someone else would pay for? Next time you want to get rid of something, think of ebay and think of us too.
