Clear out and cash in for Meningitis Now

Megan Thompson | 13th June 2020

As households across the UK use lockdown to clear out their cupboards, eBay are launching their ‘Big Charity Sell’ campaign – to encourage people to sell their unwanted items and help good causes at the same time

Fundraise for Meningitis Now with eBay for charities

Selling through eBay for Charity is easy and safe. So if you’ve had a clear out and don’t know what to do with your unwanted things, why not sell them on eBay and donate a percentage of your sales to Meningitis Now? 

That way, every item you sell can help us support people affected by meningitis during this difficult time.

Step one - Clear out your cupboards, garage or loft to find your unwanted belongings. Make sure you want to sell them and they’re yours to sell!

Step two - List your unwanted things on eBay and make sure you click ‘donate a portion to charity’. Choose Meningitis Now as your chosen charity and select how much of the sale you would like to donate.

Step three - When your item sells, your donation will come directly to Meningitis Now through the PayPal Giving Fund. You’ll receive a donation receipt from eBay to confirm this.

Step four - Feel great knowing that you’ve decluttered your home - and helped Meningitis Now continue to save lives and rebuild futures for people affected by meningitis.

Keeping you and our communities safe is our priority, so we ask that you stay up to date with the latest Government guidelines regarding social distancing and COVID-19. Please take the time to read the guidance, to keep yourself and others safe whilst you are fundraising. Thank you.
