The experience with the charity listing on bidorbuy is that people care and are willing to give whatever they can to help.
Currently, there are more than thirty listings in the bidorbuy Charity section. When you transfer your money to any of them, you are helping the relevant charity or non-profit organisation carry on doing its worthwhile job. The “charity sellers” presently selling on bidorbuy are, in alphabetical order:
- Bidvest WCTAH 2011 is raising funds for Bidvest World Chefs Tour Against Hunger 2011
- Books Etc raises funds for Children’s Feeding Trust
- Chaelicampaign helps children with disabilities
- FORA cares for rescued and abused dogs and cats
- Papillon Foundation provides training and educational courses to people who cannot afford tuition fees
- Potchlions will donate all the proceeds to the SA Guide Dogs Association

Many of you also donated to the bidorbuy initiative in support of the Salvation Army blanket drive.
Numerous other charities have made use of the bidorbuy trading platform to raise finds. Recently, UJW Kesher Group had several well-received auctions, as did Sungardens Hospice. Epilepsy SA told us that bidorbuy was by far the most successful of the channels they tried for their Kruger Rand raffle sale.
All thanks to you, bidorbuy users. You know that every little bit matters and you gave what you could.
