Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 12, 2016
uBid.com, recognized as the go-to online marketplace for new, overstock, closeout, and recertified products, today launched uBiduGive.com as a charity arm of uBid.com to focus on supporting charity organizations and give back to the community. uBiduGive.com leverages the powerful auction platform of uBid.com, while focusing on helping philanthropic organizations raise money to support their cause. uBiduGive’s auction site allows shoppers to bid on and purchase authentic items and memorabilia autographed by celebrities, giving them an opportunity to win and, at the same time, support charities.
uBiduGive.com in partnership with Soles4Souls, a social enterprise that distributes shoes to those in need, and SneakerWarz, a lifestyle brand for sneaker heads, recently began an online auction of shoes signed by Michael Jordan, Damian Lillard, and other athletes. Several other non-profit organizations are also planning similar auctions on uBiduGive.com in the coming months.
“I am excited about the launch of our new auction platform to help charitable organizations raise money for good causes. Our work with Soles4Souls and Shaunte Cannady, CEO of SneakerWarz, is a good example of how uBiduGive.com can get shoppers involved in bidding for one of a kind celebrity signed items while supporting charities” said Ketan Thakker, CEO of uBid.com.
SneakerWarz has embarked on a 10 city #Unity tour which is a national campaign designed to help alleviate poverty through solution-based ideas and bring meaningful opportunities for Sneaker heads to buy, sell, trade and donate shoes.
"I've been a sneaker lover, sneaker head, sneaker collector, sneaker aficionado, sneaker broker, and sneaker retailer, for over 20 years. And just like I've evolved through the years from lover to retailer, with the rise of the Internet, the social digital tech age has allowed me to be a part of the sneaker culture globally. The collection of like-minded people, now whom many I call friends encouraged me to start an online store. The next level is to help give back. The sneaker culture is not just a lifestyle it's a community and we take care of each other. So collaboration with uBiduGive is a natural progression and extension of Sneak Warz company values." Mr. Shaunte Cannady, Founder and CEO of Sneaker Warz, LLC.
Buddy Teaster, President & CEO of Soles4Souls commented “uBid.com is well positioned to build on their current success and help make a real difference through uBidUgive.com. Not for profits can really benefit from this platform while giving uBid clients access to unique collectibles and great products. It really is a perfect match.”
