    Bump Auctions For Charity

     

    Ebay’s charity program has got another supporter albeit a little affiliate website. Bumpauctions now displays a custom bump banner on the main page of its site for charity auctions. A portion of the sales of these auctions go towards a large diversity of local, national and international charitable organizations. The portion of sales can range anywhere from 10% to 100% of sales. Here is the banner.

     

    Charitable auctions were introduced on Ebay after 9/11 to raise funds for victims and their families. Proceeds have also supported disaster relief in other parts of the world. They have grown to include over 30,000 organizations in many different countries across the globe. The auctions are just like regular Ebay auctions except that a portion of sales go to the organization listed on the auction. Anyone can buy or sell with these auctions, but the charity that is listed has to go through a process and be registered to accept charitable donations.

     

    Bumpauctions started in 2007 as an affiliate offering Ebay sellers free auction advertising using a unique online bump script.  The charity banner is just one of many banners and displays that can be found on the site.
