“Online auctions are now among the popular techniques to raise money to give away to charity. The online auction for charity idea was started by the National Geographic when it auctioned items on eBay in 2006, and it has been popular since. Hollywood actors and actresses, famous athletes, and business men and women give their items and efforts away for online charity auctions. Those moneyed individuals coming from other countries can also contribute to online auction for charity because they don’t need to fly to the venue to bid – adding to the popularity of online charity auctions.
If the organizer knows how to run a charity auction, there’s usually no limit of socially conscious Hollywood artists, athletes, and business people willing to help. Many Hollywood celebrities are willing to donate their items if the proceeds will go to a good cause. Other popular hot items to auction are sports equipments, memorabilia, or anything owned by famous athletes, and a lot of athletes are willing to give these items too. If these items are auctioned for charity, the organizers should have no problem looking for bidders because many individuals are willing to ditch money just to owned these items.
