Are you ready for the easiest fundraiser ever?
We already work with dozens of local charities to raise money for their organizations. It’s really easy and will not take much effort on your part.
Here’s how it works:
You partner with a local retailer in your community; someone who is passionate about your cause. It can be anyone in your community that cares about your cause and sells non-perishable, non-consumable items. Simply ask them if they would be willing to donate unwanted items (end of season, past season, etc.) items to benefit your cause.
Put us in contact with the retailer – and your job is done. We’ll work with the retailer to collect their items on their schedule. Whenever they donate items, we’ll let you know that items have been received and we’ll sell them online with up to 40% of the proceeds to benefit your cause.
As items sell, you’ll receive cash donations within a couple of weeks, automatically in your Pay Pal Giving Fund.
It’s Easy to Get Started
- Make a list of retailers in your area who sell items like handbags, shoes, clothing, pet supplies, jewelry, home decor items, personal care items, small electronics, etc.
- Send them one of our custom designed flyers & ask them if they’d be willing to partner with your organization to support your cause.
- Provide us with their contact information and we’ll take it from there.
Great partner stores include:
- Gift shops
- Department stores like TJ Maxx, Kohls, JC Penney, Pottery Barn, Home Goods
- Specialty stores that sell designer handbags like Vera Bradley
- Shoe stores
- Outlet stores
- Pet stores
- Personal care stores like Bath & Body Works, Ulta Beauty, etc.
Once you have at least one retailer willing to donate on your behalf, send us their contact information and we’ll take it from there. We’ll arrange a pickup of their items, we’ll list each item for sale on eBay, we’ll photograph and store each donated item in our inventory. As items sell, you will receive up to 40% of the sale price automatically from eBay within a couple of weeks of the sale.
We’ll even send you a link to your eBay for Charity listing, to show you and your supporters every item earmarked for sale in our shop to benefit your organization. Everything is 100% automated and completely transparent. Nothing could be simpler and it’s a great way to raise money for your organization.

It’s Really Not as Difficult as You Might Think
There are many local retailers who will donate items they are unable to sell or as the seasons change, to make room for newer inventory. All you have to do is ask a retailer who may have supported your organization in the past, or a local shop that you frequently patronize if they would be willing to donate unwanted items to your organization. You can even provide them with a donation receipt so they receive a tax deduction for their donation. Many local shops will be more than happy to donate their unwanted items to make room in their store for new items & benefit a worthy cause…Why Not Yours?
