Fundraising can take up a lot of time for non-profit organizations like ourselves.  There are three easy ways you can help raise funds to REDUCE STIGMA, PROMOTE GENDER EQUALITY, and TEACH AIDS PREVENTION EDUCATION.

You may give us a HAND UP by choosing from three different fundraising platforms:

1. Starting your own online crowd-funding campaign with Razzoo.Screen Shot 2014-09-08 at 11.01.27 AM

Razoo is a crowd funding platform that helps you start campaigns for existing organizations.  We are already registered and ready to take donations – click here to get information and get started with your own campaign to benefit Project HAND UP.

2. Sell items on eBay using the “eBay for Charity” program

Favorite us on eBay

Support Project HAND UP when you shop or sell on eBay. This is made possible by the eBay for Charity program which has helped eBay buyers and sellers donate hundreds of millions of dollars to thousands of charities (and we’re one of them!)  You can make it like a virtual garage sale, where friends and family all chip in, together with your eBay account or separately with their own.

Here’s what eBay says about it:

  •  • MAKE US YOUR FAVORITE! First, personalize your shopping experience to benefit our organization by making us your Favorite charity on eBay. This will help us more than you know.


  •  • DONATE TO US IN EBAY CHECKOUT: By making us your Favorite, you will automatically see Project HAND UP as your preferred charity when you buy anything on eBay, making it easy to add $1 or more upon checkout.


  •  • SELL YOUR ITEMS TO BENEFIT US: Last but not least: sell your used items on eBay and donate as little as 10% (1% for vehicles) or up to 100% of your sale to benefit us. When you sell, simply look for the eBay for Charity signature blue and yellow ribbon next to “Make a donation.” Check out the benefits you’ll receive:
    •     + eBay will waive your Final Value Fees to the extent you donate. (e.g. donate 20% and see 20% of your Final Value Fees waived)
    •     + The tax credit from all of your donations is yours to keep.
    •     + Items that benefit charity sell better, as buyers trust sellers that support charity more.
    •     + Help the world by upcycling/recycling. Plenty of items that might otherwise end up in a landfill can be readily used by others that may not have the means to buy something new.
    •     + Feel good for doing good.


  •  • SELL YOUR USED VEHICLE TO BENEFIT US: Unlike other charity auto programs, you can sell your used vehicle on eBay and donate up to 100% to benefit Project HAND UP. This often can result in a larger donation than the $500 or less you may receive from a dedicated charity auto program.

3. Start a Facebook Fundraiser

Easiest of all, our facebook page has a “Fundraisers” button.  You can click it (or just click this here) and then click  “+ Raise Money” and that’s it!

From there you can create your own financial goal – use our pictures or your own, add your own clever give-aways (you’ll have to decide how you want to reward people) and start spreading the news.  Facebook will pay us directly whenever money is donated to your fundraiser.

Here’s a quick video that sort of explain it:
