Selling items on eBay can help our kids!
Are you a retailer selling on eBay or perhaps its time to do a little housecleaning? Haven of Hope International is a registered non-profit with eBay. eBay allows sellers to donate 10% to 100% (When selling vehicles through eBay Motors, the minimum donation is 1%.) When your item sells, PayPal Giving Fund will collect the donation from eBay and forward it to us.

Their story is a great example of what individuals can do to make a huge impact in the lives of children that have no natural family support. They are showing children that their Family of Hope cares, is committed and will stop at nothing to prove it! This speaks volumes to children who have been abused and abandoned.
“I am so grateful to have Chiqui and Kayla swimming this year. The girls have more strong female role models in addition to Alice Skaff,” said Thom. “Chiqui swam for the Columbian National Swim Team and Kayla is a graduate of Notre Dame University and has completed several triathlons.
“Our hope is the children follow in our footsteps to overcome all their obstacles and know that with God’s help, anything is possible.”
