One of the Ebay groups I happen to be involved with has taken on something not many Ebay groups can say they have done. They took Ebay groups to a whole new level by doing charity auctions! For the month of May, EBSTG is donating to Project Camp, Inc dba The Center for Courageous Kids. Participating group members will be listing a number of active auctions with sale proceeds to benefit The Center for Courageous Kids. A percentage (10 - 100%) of each auction that is sold will donate to the cause. This organization has been registered with Ebay Giving Works since 2006. EBSTG is proud to join forces with this organization, in an effort to send one or more kids to camp this summer!
The Center for Couragous Kids mission is to "uplift children who have life-threatening illnesses by creating experiences year-round that are memorable, exciting, fun, build self-esteem, are physically safe, and medically sound. No child or family will pay to attend camp. The camp will be funded by donations from individuals, foundations, and corporations with a heart for children." Visit their website for more information at www.courageouskids.org
You can help this wonderful cause by clicking on the banner below and bidding on any of the items listed. The event started May 1st, so not everyone has listed their auctions yet (including me).
Please check back often to find out what has been listed. Your support is very much appreciated! We did a similar charity event in December that raised a few hundred dollars for Hurricane Ike relief through the Ebay Giving works charity program. We hope we can surpass that and help out a few kids!
Do you remember a special summer memory or positive camp memory that still remains with you? Why not pay it forward by supporting this cause. If you cannot help financially at this time, you can help by just spreading the word...either by tweeting about it, blogging about it, or referring friends to the search link associated with the banner above. You can even spread the word by sharing the link to this blog. Thank you for your support and any help you can lend!
