Helping Sick Kids around the World

Kids should be outdoors playing with their friends or in school learning new things. Many of them, however, spend most of their days in hospital beds due to life-threatening diseases. Fortunately, folks like you can help them recover by supporting these popular nonprofit organizations:

Make-A-Wish Foundation

Illnesses often prevent children from living their dreams. That’s why the Make-A-Wish Foundation strives to turn their aspirations into reality. Whether they want to be a policeman for a day, visit Disneyland, or meet their favorite basketball player, this nonprofit does everything it can to make such requests realized.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Since 1983, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised over $5 billion for 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S.A. and Canada. The funds are used to pay for uncompensated treatments, purchase equipment, and to support research and training on children’s diseases.

Save a Child’s Heart Foundation

The Save a Child’s Heart Foundation is an international humanitarian group that provides free heart surgery to children in need, especially those in developing countries. Since 1995, it has provided the finest medical care to kids regardless of their race, religion, gender, or financial standing.

Luckily, all of these nonprofits are part of eBay’s Giving Works program. Just list your pre-owned items on the site, and set aside 10-100 percent of the proceeds for your chosen charity.
