A new slant on educational fund-raisingPosted Tuesday, November 27, 2007, at 9:29 PM
It may come as no surprise to many of you who read the blog that I am involved with eBay education. During the holidays coming up, I would be willing to teach a free Basic of Selling on eBay to two people from each school in Bedford County, if they want to set up an eBay account to sell donations from the community.
It is amazing what you will find at the convenience centers that is perfectly good and able to be sold. Community members could drop off these items or donate their unwanted estate sale items to be sold on eBay, with 100% of the profits going to the school or organizations that participate.
There are numerous ways they could also use this as an educational exercise, like teaching high school students how to manage a business, collect and categorize merchandise, write listings, research value, work up the photography, fulfill orders, packaging, shipping, accounting, cost analysis, etc.
Talk about an educational recycling program!
If any schools are interested, contact me through the e-mail link attached to this blog. It would also be good to talk it out on this blog so we can get a variety of ideas.
Setting up an eBay account is free and the one-time class would be free. Great price!
