New Online Charitable Platform Launches In The UK To Revolutionise Traditional Fundraising
eSolidar, a new online fundraising initiative which allows users to donate items and charities to raise money online, is launching today in the UK. eSolidar has already seen success in Brazil and Portugal, including running partnerships with festivals, such as Rock in Rio, where Elton John generously donated an autographed keyboard via the eSolidar website.
eSolidar is free to join and allows users to sell items and give some or all of the proceeds to the charity of their choice. For charities, it also offers a new way of fundraising, moving away from chugging and cold calling. The site not only allows charities to sell items, but also to post ‘auctions for good’.
eSolidar was founded by Marco Barbosa in Portugal in May 2014 and aims to disrupt the way traditional fundraising and charitable giving is carried out – by taking it online. It currently has 35,000 registered users, and has raised over £70,000 so far via online donations and auctions.
CEO of eSolidar Marco Barbosa said:
“The aim of the eSolidar is for people to be able to sell or donate their items easily online, whilst also supporting the causes they care about most. It’s the chance to make some money and do a little good.”
