eBay and trees.
AMERICAN FORESTS has joined eBay's Giving Works program, in which a portion of the money bidders spend benefits a worthy nonprofit. Marked with a special ribbon icon, each Giving Works listing promises that a nonprofit will receive all or a portion of the proceeds from the sale of everything from silver chandelier earrings to blue tricycles.
Bidding on eBay Giving Works items is no different than bidding on any other eBay item. Just pick your item, sign in with your eBay account, and place a bid. You can even search specifically for eBay Giving Works items. Each item lists the nonprofit that will benefit. Visit www.ebay.com for more information about AMERICAN FORESTS' listings.
The win-win situation comes via MissionFish, a service of the Points of Light Foundation. The Points of Light Foundation helps nonprofits turn in-kind donations into unrestricted funding.
