eBay users: Here's a new way to give!  Support Develop Africa by Selling or Buying on eBay

At Develop Africa we have received a multitude of books and school supplies and we are so grateful for the outpouring of generosity.  We have a problem though....some of these wonderful supplies are sitting in our corporate headquarters instead of in the hands of the many children that desperately need these supplies....the reason is as simple as it is expensive....shipping costs.  

Please help us by donating to help cover the cost of shipping to get these supplies where they need to be.  A single drum costs over $200 to ship to Africa.   Every dollar donated gets us one step closer to getting these supplies into children's hands and we want to get ALL of them into the hands of the children that they were donated for.  Over 20 drums have been shipped between January to August 2015, but we have over 10 drums of supplies currently sitting in the corporate office...just waiting for the funds to ship these supplies to Africa.  

You can help us raise money to cover the expensive shipping costs by just selling the items around your home, school or business list them on eBay and donate the profits to Develop Africa, which will go toward the shipping cost of the books and school supplies that are donated to us.  You can experience shopping/selling on eBay and support Develop Africa at the same time.


Support Develop Africa when you shop or sell on eBay. This is made possible by the eBay for Charity program which has helped eBay buyers and sellers donate hundreds of millions of dollars to thousands of charities (and we’re one of them!)

First, personalize your shopping experience to benefit our organization by making us your Favorite charity on eBay. This will help us more than you know.

By making us your Favorite, you will automatically see Develop Africa as your preferred charity when you buy anything on eBay, making it easy to add $1 or more upon checkout.

Last but not least, help us instead of a thrift store: sell your used items on eBay and donate as little as 10% (1% for vehicles) or up to 100% of your sale to benefit us. When you sell, simply look for the eBay for Charity signature blue and yellow ribbon next to “Make a donation.”

Check out the benefits you’ll receive:

  • eBay will waive your Final Value Fees to the extent you donate. (e.g. donate 20% and see 20% of your Final Value Fees waived)
  • The tax credit from all of your donations is yours to keep. + Items that benefit charity sell better, as buyers trust sellers that support charity more.
  • Help the world by upcycling / recycling. Plenty of items that might otherwise end up in a landfill can be readily used by others that may not have the means to buy something new.

Feel good for doing good. 

Unlike other charity auto programs, you can sell your used vehicle on eBay and donate up to 100% to benefit Develop Africa. This often can result in a larger donation than the $500 or less you may receive from a dedicated charity auto program. Sell and donate the proceeds today.
