A group of Australian not for profit organisations have partnered with new online auction and fundraising site www.bids4kids.com.au to make it easy for Australians to "recycle" unneeded goods and contribute to the well-being of disadvantaged people.
Major charities and foundations taking part in the initiative include ACT for Kids, Camp Quality, Cerebral Palsy League, Down Syndrome Association of QLD Inc, Hannah's Foundation, Haemophilia Foundation, Kids Helpline, Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland, Melanoma Patients Australia, Men of League Foundation, MS Australia – QLD, Police-Citizens Youth Clubs QLD, Swim4Kids, the Kokoda Challenge Youth Program, the Matthew Stanley Foundation and Variety, the Children's Charity.
Bids4kids is an online auction site that allows you the opportunity to choose an NFPO to donate proceeds from the sale of an item. It also allows the charity to sell items to the public to raise much needed funds.
Bids4kids is the brainchild of Stuart Jeffries, John Braid and Paul Campion, co-founders of SWIM4KIDS, a fundraising event that has raised in excess of $300,000 for the Royal Children's Hospital, QLD.
Says Campo (who in his other life is a well known radio announcer), "If you have anything lying round the house you would like to sell and maybe give a little bit back to a great cause, then jump on and register now.
"It is free to register and it will only take a minute or two.
"Coming up to Christmas it would be a really worthwhile thing to do and please tell all your friends about the site."
