In 2013, IAVA partnered with eBay and West Coast Customs for “The Road Home,” a campaign to share the personal stories of four veterans and their transition back to civilian life. One veteran from each branch (Air Force, Army, Marines, and Navy) received a personalized, custom-built dream car on an episode of ‘Inside West Coast Customs’ which aired November 10th, on Fox Sports Network.
The PayPal Giving Fund and eBay Giving Works then generated $233,128 in donations through a charity auction and the option to give at checkout as part of “The Road Home” campaign (Nov-Dec, 2013). Since the beginning of our partnership, eBay has given almost $500,000 to support IAVA’s free programming, and has provided $1.8 million in web development and online marketing.
There are several ways for eBay users to get involved and actively support IAVA while shopping or selling on eBay.
Sell to support – Any seller can choose to donate from 10% – 100% of the proceeds from their auction items to benefit IAVA.
Donate Now – Through eBay’s “Donate Now” button, you can do just that!
Shop to Support – Every time IAVA is featured during “Give@Checkout”- inserted at the bottom of each invoice – buyers can choose to add a donation to the purchase and 100% of proceeds will benefit IAVA.
