All Booked Up 2011

The idea is to raise funds for two charities – Beating Bowel Cancer and Surrey Young Carers – by auctioning off various signed or unique items donated by authors and musicians via EBay.

As charities are seeing declining donations due to the current economic climate I thought one way to get in vital funds is by charity Ebay auctions as people get an item they want whilst helping the nominated charity, who get funds they may not have otherwise have got.

Please note – 100% of the selling price goes to the nominated charity less Ebay’s final selling fees Charity EBay auctions

Total raised so far via EBay auctions…£1,469

Beating Bowel Cancer = £1,410

Surrey Young Carers = £59

If any author or musician/band would like to donate an item for an EBay auction please contact me via papa_bear70@hotmail.com

Thanks to all who have supported my charity EBay auctions – very much appreciated and more soon :)

Dear Jason

I wanted thank you for the eBay donations that we have received from you over the past few months.  We are very grateful to have received over £1,200 in donations from your sales which really is an amazing amount to have raised for us through eBay. 

The money you have raised will help with our work at the charity to provide support to bowel cancer patients & their relatives and to increase awareness of symptoms and the importance of early diagnosis. None of this would be possible without the generosity of people like you.

I know that you have been promoting your eBay sales on Twitter and Facebook which we always ‘retweet’ and ‘like’.  If you are planning any more sales do feel free to let me know as we would be happy to add details to our Facebook page and to tweet about them.

Thanks once again for your support.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or I can help in any way.

Best wishes

Angela Cummings
