Did you know you can help support the British Skin Foundation with very little effort and no additional costs to you! There are a number of initiatives that will allow you to generate funds for crucial research into skin disease and skin cancer, by doing simple things such as shopping online. Below are some easy ways you can help make a big difference.


Do you have clothes/accessories, electricals, sports equipment, baby items, or other household items you no longer use? Perhaps you even have items in their original packaging, or clothes in your wardrobe with tags still on? Don’t bin them! Sell them on eBay for the British Skin Foundation!

  • Free up space 

  • Help the environment 

  • Raise vital funds for skin disease research 

Support the BSF by selling your stuff on eBay in three simple steps...             

  1. Select to support the British Skin Foundation 

Use the Charity Search to find the British Skin Foundation, then look for “donate a portion to charity” when you list your item. Add British Skin Foundation and pick your donation percentage (you can donate between 10% and 100% of each item sale price to the BSF) before finalising your listing.

  1. Sell & Post 

Sell and post your item(s) to the buyer. No additional steps or paperwork required.

  1. Receive a Donation Receipt

Within a few weeks, and after the buyer has paid, PayPal Giving Fund will automatically send your donation to the British Skin Foundation and send you a donation receipt. eBay will also credit you an equal percentage of your fees.
