eBay teams up with Fergie and other celebs to fight Breast Cancer

Submitted by on Saturday, 24 September 2011 | One Comment

October sees the start of Breast Cancer Awareness month for 2011, and many charities and businesses across the world will be doing their bit to raise money for the cause.

Online auction website, eBay.com, have always done their bit for good causes and now they’re teaming up with The Black Eyed Peas front-woman, Fergie, as well as a whole host of other celebs, for their Eigth annual ‘Make it Pink’ fundraiser.

Hosted by eBay’s charitable organisation, ‘eBay Giving Works’, the fundraiser will see shoppers be given the chance to bid on items donated by celebrities including Christian Louboutin black suede lace-up boots and a Marc Jacobs navy blue satin dress worn by Fergie. Other items include a New Year’s Eve VIP experience with Ryan Seacrest in New York City amongst many others.

Talking about the cause, singer Fergie recently said in a statement: “Pink means something to many of us. You may have been touched by breast cancer. I have, since both my mother and father are cancer survivors and I lost my grandmother to cancer three years ago. As a global ambassador for the Avon Foundation for Women, I am asking you to help make a difference for women, men and their families in the fight against breast cancer.”

If, unfortunately you’re wallet just doesn’t allow you to purchase such quality items, you can still do your bit for the cause by purchasing some of the pink branded goods which are available on eBay now. Users of the website can also donate their chosen via Paypal or donate a percentage of your item sales.

Shoppers can also visit eBay’s Facebook page through out Breast Cancer Awareness Month and share photos and stories explaining why breast cancer awareness is important to them and for every story shared, the auction site will donate one dollar to a non-profit organisation.
