Shopping for holiday bargains? Choose to support WDC with your eBay purchases this World Oceans Day

Ebay for charity

From Monday 3rd until 10th of June you can support WDC’s work whilst buying and selling through eBay.

For this week only, WDC is eBay’s featured charity at checkout, giving you the chance to donate when grabbing a bargain.

So, if you’re inspired by World Oceans Day on 8th June, why not give a little to WDC at checkout when searching for any last minute holiday bargains? With every purchase, you help support marine conservation and save whales and dolphins!

Any funds raised will be used to support WDC's work around the world to keep whales and dolphins safe and free from the many threats they face: captivity, whaling, accidental capture in fishing nets and pollution.

If you are one of the millions of people who use eBay to sell unwanted items throughout the year, you can continue to support our vital work even after this week. Just visit our eBay for Charity page and donate a percentage of each of your eBay sales to WDC.

You can opt to donate anything from £1 upwards when making your purchase. If you are selling an item you can choose the percentage that you will donate which will simply be added to your product.
