eBay, the world’s largest online marketplace and leader in cause commerce, is joining forces with six inspiring stars—Bubba Watson, Tracy Anderson, Barry Zito, Fergie, CC Sabathia, and Avicii—to offer a unique series of charity auctions featuring one-of-a-kind experiences and curated items to help fans pursue their personal passions in the new year. “New Year, New You” launches on eBay on January 1st, 2013 and runs thru January 11th, 2013. 100% of the proceeds from all of the auctions will go to support the celebrity’s charity of choice.
The New Year is often a time to get inspired, revisit goals, and create resolutions. A handful of driven bidders will score the opportunity of a lifetime to follow through on these annual promises with a little help from a celebrity they have always admired while raising money for charity. Some of the most celebrated names in music, sports and fitness have carefully designed experiences for their fans, giving them the ultimate opportunity to try something they have always aspired to do—it’s not just about making a New Year’s resolution, it’s about a New Year’s transformation.
This is just one of the many ways stars are collaborating with eBay to make a difference—find out about these charity auctions and other celeb initiatives on eBay Celebrity.
