News iconNew Tsunami Charity Selected & Change in Donations

This News article was posted by CrazyJoe at 09:33 AM on February 28, 2005

After a weekend of research, I have decided to sell what Virtual Stock I have on hand at this time for Americares. Anything I receive from here on out will default to Red Cross unless otherwise requested by the person donating.

The first thing I needed was the charity to be available through MissionFish - which is the conduit I must go through to sell for charity on eBay.

Second, it was rated A by CharityWatch, which has several ways to rate, including efficient application of donations.

Third, Americares is still accepting money to aide the Tsunami Victims, which is pretty important since that's what tripped me with Red Cross this month.

So to sum it all up, anything I have on hand right now will be sold with donations going to Americares, while anything here on out I receive ingame will default back to Red Cross. As always, anyone who donates in game directly can specify the charity of their choice, just as long as it is available through Mission Fish!

eBay changed their fees on Feb. 24, as seen here. Since eBay will donate collected selling fees for 100% donation auctions, I will SOME auctions at 100% donation while others at 75-80%, and the 25-20% kept will be used to cover the eBay and Paypal fees. I have always kept a small percantage of the money to cover fees, but now I hope to donate some of that money being reimbursed to the same charity through eBay.
