Do you have things lying around your house that are just collecting dust and cluttering up your space? Maybe you have vast collections of things that once meant the world to you but now you're wondering why you spent all that money on them? Don't we all have bric-a-brac that has been stored in a box for years? Others may see it as new treasure!!

It is easy and free to list items for sale on eBay and donate to your favorite charity, but if you're not already familiar with eBay the whole process may seem a little overwhelming at first, which is why we decided to put this page together for you. Once you've done it once, it's easy as 1-2-3 to make money and donate a portion of it to MDF! Just follow the steps below to get started:

Create a free eBay account or log into an existing account

(NOTE: you MUST fill out your personal information, under Account Settings, on your eBay account before you can buy or sell on eBay)

(TIP: After logging in, look in the top left corner of the eBay page for your name and click the down arrow to access Account Settings)

 

Sign up for a free PayPal account, if you do not already have one

(NOTE: you MUST link a bank account or a credit card to your PayPal account in order for it to work.)
