I told you about the eBay green box!
I told you about my Unwrap Attack with Ebay..

Interesting right? I thought so! I love how you can give to charity through the eBay Giving Works program and as you can see over the years a lot of money has been raised, and I didn’t even tell you all of their pop culture and charity fundraisers. I love how you can even invite your favorite charity to apply.
All they need to do is complete a simple online webform on the website of our partner, MissionFish, and provide documents that help MissionFish verify their status as a nonprofit.
Can’t find your favorite nonprofit in our directory? Invite the organization to join! It’s free for them and takes very little time to get up and running.
Now that I did ALL that…..
