eBay World Elephant Day Auction A Success

August 31, 2017

In support of World Elephant Day and the U.S. Wildlife Trafficking Alliance (USWTA) earlier this month, eBay offered customers a variety of options to support this important initiative. In addition to allowing customers to donate to the USWTA at checkout, eBay also held a 10 day auction for a variety of goods provided by the USWTA. We’re happy to announce that both activities were a success.

Donations at checkout raised more than $10,000. And the charity auction proved very popular with 12 items sold for a total of $12,810 raised. As mentioned in our previous blog post on this subject, all proceeds are going directly to the USWTA to help fight illegal wildlife trafficking.

eBay is proud to have been a part of 2017 World Elephant Day and would like to thank all of our customers who gave to the cause and raised much needed funds for the USWTA.
