Favourite your charity and help them win £7000

This October, eBay users in the UK can help their favourite charity win £7,000. There is also a chance to win £250 spending money for yourself.

The charity prizes are:

  • 1st place – £7,000
  • 2nd place – £3,000
  • 3rd place – £2,000
  • Top small charity (under £1.5m turnover) – £2,000

All you need to do is search for your favourite charity on the competition page and click on the ‘save as favourite’ button on their profile. You’ll notice the heart icon change to red and the charity appear as a favourite on the right of the page. At the end of October the three charities favourited the most times will be awarded the cash prizes.

If you do choose to favourite a charity, you’ll be able to donate to that charity at checkout. If you don’t have a favourite charity eBay will simply suggest a charity for you to donate to anyway.

This competition was run a couple of years back and proved hugely popular. Although the cash prizes are nice for the charities, the real bonus is the number of people who actively chose to follow a charity and the number of times they may donate a pound at checkout in the future.

If you work for a charity then it’s time to Facebook, tweet, Instagram, Pin and email your supporters asking them to favourite you on eBay. You might win a prize to assist with your charity work but more importantly you will gain followers who may donate regularly in the future.
