Thumbs up eBay - nonprofit feature

Hey guys! I just bought something on eBay and saw a new feature... you can set nonprofit organizations as a favorite and every time you buy or sell something, it shares it with that person and also gives you a chance to donate $1 to them. I thought that was really cool - it's so simple to donate $1 when you buy something... so I fiddled with it, you can search by type of non-profit (i picked environmental and animal), put Parrot in your search box, and select your state... I now have 5 parrot rescues here in FL on my eBay to potentially donate to every time I purchase and to share with others when I buy/sell.

I just thought that was too cool - supporting parrot rescues, especially local ones, just buy buying what I normally would, so I wanted to share it with you guys Every penny helps, so $1 from each purchase adds up quick!

You just go into your "My eBay" then "Account" then click "Donation Account" from the left and can select your nonprofits from there

That's so cool!
I don't buy from eBay much, though.
