Annie's Bid Chooses Operation Homefront To Benefit From Online Auctions
Annie's Bid, a new online auction that offers great deals to bidders while raising money for charity, has chosen Operation Homefront as its featured cause
. The goal is to raise $10,000 through AnniesBid.com’s “Hearts on the Homefront” campaign.
Anyone can help raise money for this effort at virtually no cost through AnniesBid.com’s social fundraising app
. Simply sign up for the app, choose the Operation Homefront chapter you wish to support, and send “hearts” to friends. AnniesBid.com makes a donation to Operation Homefront for each heart sent and accepted. This directly benefits military personnel and their families, both during and after active duty, by providing financial assistance for everything from grocery purchases to a vehicle donation program.
The campaign has a dimension of fun competition as well. Participants compete for weekly drawings and the states whose residents generate the most hearts will garner additional benefits for their state’s Operation Homefront chapter.
Similar to its success with Operation Smile, AnniesBid.com’s fundraising app has the potential to raise thousands of dollars for wounded warriors, but AnniesBid.com cannot do this alone. We call upon all those that know a veteran or their family to show their support by sending as many hearts as possible – a small contribution for those who have given so much more to our country.
Open to the press and public, AnniesBid.com will raise money for Operation Homefront through its unique auction model through February and beyond. Read the full press release
