WaveLength wins eBay Small Charity Competition!

WaveLength is participating in Small Charity Week as a winner of eBay’s Give at Checkout Competition – read on for a chance to win a unique fishing experience, and give in a new way!

You may not know this, but this week (the 11th – 17thJune) is Small Charity Week 2012. All over the world, people are celebrating this week through promotions and other activities designed to help small charities – and WaveLength is proud to announce that we’ve been selected as winners of eBay’s initiative for the week.

Online shopping platform eBay’s ‘Give at Checkout Challenge’ displays four 90-character messages from small charities, which eBay users can decide to make a last-minute donation to when they reach the charity. Hundreds of suggested taglines were submitted to the organisers of Small Charity Week, the FSI (Foundation for Social Improvement).

WaveLength won one of the coveted four slots with the tagline: “I want to buy a radio for a lonely, isolated, housebound elderly person in the UK.”

If you shop on eBay any time this week, you’ll have the opportunity to make a seamless one-off donation to WaveLength without leaving the eBay site.

As one of the winners, WaveLength also has the opportunity to carry out a special auction using the eBay FSI platform. We’re auctioning a day-long fishing experience on a private section of the River Granta, accompanied and guided by our CEO Tim Leech. (For Tim’s fly fishing blog, see https://www.flyfishingpodcast.com.)

The auction concludes on the 17th June, so get down to https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270987806740#ht_483wt_1932 and make a bid! Or, if fishing’s not your thing, you can make a Small Charity Week donation to WaveLength by shopping on eBay and selecting Give at Checkout, or by visiting our JustGiving page at https://www.justgiving.com/wavel.

Happy Small Charity Week, everybody!
