Short Summary

Were in the process of launching an auction platform that will enable charities to raise a substantial amount of money by auctioning items that were donated to them or even purchased at full price.

Here is how it works:

Unlike standard charity auctions, the goal of Charity Tick is to have organizations run their own auctions using our trendy auction platform. Bidders on such auctions purchase tokens at a price of $0.60 each. Each bid raises the price by a single penny. An item worth hundreds may end up selling for far less, but a final sale value of $35.00 for an item such as an Ipod ($300 value) equals 3500 bids at $0.60 each meaning that the charity has raised $2,100. One person has won a cheap item and everyone else has donated anywhere from $0.60-$20.00 to the charity that has listed the item.
Please see our video for a better example.


We need to raise and additional $52,500 to launch our site.

The money will be used to front $500 worth of products for the first 105 charties to be able to list items without any risk.

Our perks:

$3 Will get you a high five (if we meet).

$10 Will get you $6 of bids and a thank you shoutout on our Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/CharityTick

$25 will get you $15 worth of bids and a thank you shoutout on our Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/CharityTick

$50 will get you a Charity Tick T-shirt and $15 of bids and a thank you shoutout on our Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/CharityTick

$100 A product worth $100 will be donated to one of the starting charities in your honor and your sponsorship will be mentioned on the product page with a link to your website.

*If we do not raise all $52,500 we will use whatever money we raise to provide charities with with products.

The Impact:

Helping the 1,800,000 charities in the United states survive this turbulent economy and thrive, expand and grow in a fun, new age way.
