BUY ANIMAL CHARITY GIFTS & CARDS AT ONLINE ANIMAL CHARITY SHOPS & AUCTIONS

INTRODUCTION

Help end animal abuse and suffering by buying animal charity gifts and cards whenever you need a gift or greetings card.

A huge amount of money is spent on greetings cards and gifts. If that money was spent on cards and gifts where the proceeds went to fighting animal cruelty, a huge number of animals could be saved from suffering.

Further down this page, you will find an extensive list of links to online animal charity shops, as well as auctions and “buy it now” style sales on Facebook in aid of animals in need. You can buy all sorts of items and help animals in desperate need at the same time.

You can also support animal rescues by choosing from charity gifts and a large selection of unique greetings cards here.

COLLECT PRESENTS FOR PEOPLE
Whenever I see suitable charity gifts and greetings cards for family and friends available at online/high street animal charity shops, or auctions/”buy it now” sales in aid of animal rescues, I buy them, even if I don’t have an occasion to give them to the people they are intended for for months – I just put them in my “presents stash”. It means I have their presents ready when Christmas or their birthday comes around and don’t have to rush around at the last minute. I always tell them that the best thing about their present is that the money went towards helping animals in great need.

Collection of PresentsCharity Gifts

High street and online Animal charity shops often sell their own range of brand new charity gifts and products. In their online shops, they regularly have sale and clearance items where you can grab bargains. Online auctions and sales in aid of animals in need have all sorts of fabulous things on offer that are often new/unique and can be hand crafted.

NEVER A WASTE WHEN IT HELPS ANIMALS
Everyone receives unwanted presents from time to time. However, if these unwanted gifts were charity gifts – in that they were bought from places where the money had gone to helping stop animal cruelty and suffering – then they could never be considered waste of money due to the good purchasing them had done for animals. Plus, they can always be donated to charity and make money for a good cause for the second time!

The worst thing that can happen to unwanted gifts is that they languish unused in cupboards or drawers, eventually becoming unusable. To prevent this, donate them as charity gifts to animal charities or animal rescue organisations, where they will do good by actively helping animals desperately in need. See the Donate Stuff page for more details on donating items to help save animals from suffering. Alternatively, you could donate them to one of the online auctions/buy it now sales benefiting animals rescues, listed further down this page.

DO NOT BE MISLEAD
Products and cards can claim to be charity products and charity cards even if they only donate a tiny amount to charity. The majority that are found in high street shops and supermarkets only give around 10% or less of their net profits to charity.

The charity receives much more money per item when you purchase charity gifts and cards direct from the charities themselves. You can buy items direct from the charities themselves further down this page.

If it is not stated how much is donated, then it may well be a very low amount per item. Companies fund raise for charity when only a tiny amount from each sale goes to the charity because it helps sales of their product increase. However, if they sell enough of their product, decent amounts of money can still be made for the charity.

WHAT ARE CHARITY ADMIN COSTS?
Administrative costs are how much it costs to raise funds and run the charity. This includes things such as advertising costs, any staff costs, the cost of holding fund raising events and the cost of adhering to rules that charities are required to abide by.

Without using some funds to generate more, virtually no funds would be raised. This means spending nothing on admin is impossible for an organisation to keep running. The organisation must, however, keep costs to a minimum for the maximum return of funds.

Regarding the online animal charity shops below, some are staffed by volunteers, so no money from the sale of items goes towards paying staff, but in others, differing portions of the money will go to the people managing and staffing the shop (admin costs).

The Facebook auctions and sales are run by volunteers.

To find out the admin costs of charities in England and Wales, their accounts are available to view HERE. The mere fact that they provide these accounts, add to their admin costs!

WHERE CAN I BUY CHARITY CARDS AND GIFTS?
You can buy fundraising greetings cards and charity gifts from this websitehere.

All fundraising cards and products are sold to raise money to help stop animal cruelty and suffering and all profits go to the respective  organisations.

Some national animal charities, such as the RSPCA and PDSA have high street charity shops, where they sell goods including their own ranges of brand new charity gifts, goods and cards.

Many organisations sell their own products, but others out-source to a company who do it for them. The charity get charged for that service. Organisations do this to cut down on the admin costs, but it means they also lose out on profits.

Some organisations sell their goods on ebay using Ebay For Charity where ebay charge them a small amount per item sold.

A large number of animal charities and rescues – especially smaller organisations – have fund raising pages on social networking websites where they sell charity gifts and other items which have been donated by supporters. Many hold online charity auctions. Buying charity gifts from these auctions is a great way to help the animals.

Below there are links taking you directly to many different online animal charity shops, auctions and fund raising pages where you can buy a large selection of charity gifts and cards.

LIST OF ANIMAL CHARITY AUCTIONS & FUND RAISING PAGES
The pages below hold regular auctions, or “buy it now” sales, in aid of animal rescues/charities. You have to be registered with Facebook to take part in the sales based on Facebook. You may also have to request to join some of the groups, by clicking ‘Join’, but it is all well worth it, as this is a great way to help animals in desperate need.

What Are The Rules?

The auctions have different rules, so please read the rules for each auction, which can usually be found in the “About” or “Files” section of the page, which you can click on to be taken to.

Some of the differences in rules, for example, are that some auction pages have all items ending at the same time, some auction items on the same auction page end a certain number of days after the first bid is placed on the item, and some allow the first bid they feel acceptable to win.

How Are They Set Out?

Some auctions may have clearly organised and labelled ‘photo albums’ showing their current auction items, labelled with when the auction starts and ends, and their previous auctions / sales organised in to other photo albums.  Others may be a bit of a jumble and are a bit harder to work out, but stick with it, as it is worth it : )

There are also other fund raising activities on some of these pages.

Are They New Or Used Items?

The majority of items are new or unused and suitable to give as charity gifts. There are some lightly used items.

Do The Auctions / Sales Run All The Time?

The auctions where the items all start and end at the same time take a while to set up, and sort out at the end, so sometimes you will find the auction pages are ‘between auctions’. The ‘But It Now’ style sales run all the time, as do the auctions where the individual items all end at different times.

Auctions / Sales In Aid Of Animals In Need On The Web (But Not Facebook):

As well as the Facebook auctions & sales, on the web in general there isThe Piano Bar Auction Site that raises money for animal rescues, and there are also items that raise funds for animal charities auctioned onEbay For Charity. There are also websites selling items at fixed prices in aid of animal rescues, such as Daisy Moon.

Please remember to click the ‘Join’ button on Facebook auction groups so you can bid and be contacted if your bid wins an item.
