AuctionDrop and UPS collecting electronics to help victims of South Asian disaster
Posted on 30-Dec-2004 15:54. | Tags Filed under: News.



AuctionDrop has announced a fundraising program allowing people to help disaster victims in South Asia by donating used cameras, computers and consumer electronics. Simply drop off the items at any The UPS Store in the United States (at no cost to the donor) and AuctionDrop will sell them on eBay and donate the net proceeds to CARE's Earthquake and Tsunami Relief and Rehabilitation Fund.

"This is the worst natural disaster of our lifetime. We all want to help the victims; that's why we've opened up our organization to aid in the relief effort. We are processing donated items at cost and will sell them on eBay, giving the net proceeds to CARE for disaster relief. I'm appealing everyone to do what they can to help," said Randy Adams, CEO of AuctionDrop.

"Across the U.S. people are contacting CARE; wanting to help the thousands of tsunami affected families in South Asia," said Thomas Reynolds, Regional Director, CARE. "AuctionDrop offers an incredible chance to be a part of CARE's disaster response simply by donating electronic equipment that you no longer use everyday."

You can bring used and new cameras, computers and consumer electronics to any of the 3,700 The UPS Store locations in the United States. The CARE fundraising code for donors to enter on their form is 0198. The UPS Store location will pack and ship the item to AuctionDrop's centralized processing center, where it will be photographed and listed for sale on eBay. Once the item sells, AuctionDrop will issue a check to CARE's Earthquake and Tsunami Relief and Rehabilitation Fund. All items that remain unsold will be donated to The Salvation Army to be sold in their Thrift Stores and used to help needy people in the United States.
