Everyone has a favorite celebrity. Have you ever thought about how incredible it would be to own something that used to belong to your favorite celebrity or that may be signed by your favorite celebrity? Through celebrity auctions you can have the chance to own something that may be donated by a celebrity that you admire.
Celebrities not only donate items but they also donate their time, talents, and support to many different charities. Some of the charities that have been helped through celebrity auctions include the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, raising money for Haitian orphans, raising money for many different research funds for diseases, disorders, and cancers, or raising money to fund educational programs and other important programs for under-privileged kids.
Many celebrity auctions are going online now, as auction sites such as Ebay and other internet options have changed the way auctions are performed and bring the auction to more people, thereby increasing the chances of bringing in more money. In fact, since 2000 over 81 million dollars has been raised through celebrity auctions on Ebay alone!
If you are planning a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization and are wondering how you can get hold of some items donated by celebrities, start locally. Is there a sports team nearby that might be willing to donate items to your cause? Sports items donated by your state’s football, baseball, basketball, or hockey teams and signed by the players can bring in a lot of money for your fundraising event. Most teams would be more than willing to donate to your cause. It just takes a few minutes of your time and some well thought out words to request their help.
