Here are this year's real eBay Heroes

No primary category set

Giving Works (the US equivalent of eBay for Charity) held their 5th annual awards at eBay Live! The winners represent some of the real eBay Heroes whose (often unnoticed) efforts raise so much for deserving causes.

Every time someone buys or sells on eBay using Giving Works money is raised for charity and over $150m has now been raised through the program. During the day we met Roman Garcia and Kristin Cunningham from the Giving Works team and with their infectious enthusiasm it’s no wonder the program is growing from strength to strength.

This year’s award winners were:

  • 2008 Top Community Selling Fundraiser Award:
  • 2008 Top Nonprofit Fundraiser Through Direct Selling Award:
  • 2008 Golden Ribbon Award, Community Seller:
  • 2008 Golden Ribbon Award, Nonprofit:
