The COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak recently has shocked the whole world. Growing public health concerns present challenges for many families and affect businesses varyingly across the country. Today we are announcing a coronavirus charity donation to The American Red Cross taking place this Saturday. Similarly to the charity donation last October, we are donating the final sales price of all auction wins paid on Saturday 3/21/2020 to The American Red Cross(excluding car auctions). We also want to share that we expect DealDash shipments to continue unaffected. Overall, we want to continue providing fun and excitement to people staying at home and auctions will continue normally.Continue reading “Coronavirus Charity Donation: Together We Can Help!”
The holiday season is upon us. It’s time to start thinking about what you can win on DealDash to donate.
DealDash is the perfect place to win some things to donate to the less fortunate this holiday season. There are lots of things that would be just right thing that people could love and get lots of use out of. Read on for more information from DealDash.
Winning Toys to Donate
Since Christmas is most children’s favorite holiday, it only makes sense to make special plans to get toys to donate. Children of all ages, birth on up love to unwrap toys and gifts, so why not make some less fortunate kids happy this holiday season.
There are many different choices of toys on DealDash. There are things like night lights and stuffed animals for younger kids, Lego sets for bigger kids, and video games and electronics for teens. Remember, just because these teens aren’t adorable little kids anymore doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t love to open up a present on Christmas morning.
Where Can I Donate?
If you’re looking for a place to donate your DealDash wins, that’s easy. Toys For Tots is a wonderful and worthy cause that will be happy to take your new and unwrapped toys. There are many Toys For Tots donation drop-offs. You can find a Toys For Tots drop-off location at Toysfortots.org.
Donating items to a family instead of just one child can be a nice thing to do as well. You can pick a family from the “Angel Tree” at your local mall or church. The Angel Tree donations are run by the Salvation Army. So if you’d like to donate to the Angel Tree program but can’t find a tree to pick from, then just look up your local Salvation Army’s website.
My personal favorite place to donate to during the holiday season is social services, the agency that takes care of foster children. On any given day, there are over 400,000 children in foster care in the United States. DealDash has not only toys, but also clothing, shoes, and grooming items, all of which could be very useful for a child or teen in foster care.
BidBuddy Helps You Donate
If you’re wondering how to win these items for less fortunate children, the answer is clear – use the BidBuddy! The BidBuddy is available to every bidder, free of charge. You can use him to help in any auction, even auctions that are happening at the same time.
The BidBuddy is easy to use as well. Simply open up any DealDash auction that you’re interested in bidding on, and in the middle of the screen, you will see a space and a button that says “Book a Bid Buddy”. Click on the space that says “add bids here” and put in the number of bids that you are willing to spend on this particular DealDash auction. Then hit enter. The BidBuddy is the best way to win auctions to donate to the less fortunate on DealDash.

Winning for yourself is fun, but why not do some good? Use DealDash to help yourself be a do-gooder.
DealDash is here to auction off amazing items, but once you have everything that you need why not give back to your community? DealDash can help you get some items that would be much appreciated by the less fortunate members in your community. All of us who use “entertainment shopping” such as DealDash are fortunate that we have enough money in our budget to have fun and shop. Some people don’t have any extra room in their budget after they have the basics. Why not be a “do-gooder” and win some things to donate?
Identify Who Needs Your Help
There are many different types of people and organizations in your community who would benefit from a donation. Before you start bidding, you should make a list of the type of items that you are hoping to win and donate. For example, if you live in a very hot climate such as Texas or Florida and want to win clothing to give to the less fortunate, then you should probably stay away from the heavy jackets and sweaters.
Some examples of people and organizations who could benefit from donations are:
- Food Banks. Food banks often offer items other than food to the people who use them, such as personal hygiene and grooming supplies. They could also use the $10 gift cards for fast food that DealDash often offers for auction.
- Schools. Schools are always in need of supplies for their classrooms. DealDash sometimes offers office supplies and craft supplies that would make great donations for a school in your neighborhood.
- Fire Stations. The firefighters in your community could use your help. They are often volunteers who spend long hours in their fire station waiting for a call to come in. They would appreciate things to make that time go faster such as MP3/4 players, video game, movies, and other entertainment. They would also appreciate gift cards as well to places such as Wal-Mart so they can re-stock their supplies and purchase some treats.
- Department of Social Services. DSS can always use donations of baby supplies, personal hygiene items, and toys. When babies, kids, and teens are removed from their home they often have to spend hours at DSS waiting to either be returned to their parents or taken to a foster home. A soft plush toy or a fun game can help them take their mind of their situation for a little while.
Want Your Donation to be More Personal?
If you like the idea of being a do-gooder and donating some of your wins but don’t like the idea of donating to an organization, I have a solution. Churches are often one of the first places that a family turns when they are in trouble. Even if you are not religious or associated with a church, you can still find a recipient of your generosity there. Simply call the church office during the week and explain that you would like to donate to a needy family in their parish. They will be very happy to match you up with a family and you can know that your donation is making a very big difference in the life of a family in your own community.
BIN Instead of Win
You should know that with all auctions on DealDash , if you don’t happen to win these items when you bid on them, then you can always BIN (Buy It Now). Simply buy them for the retail price, and you will get all of your bids back to use again. You will also receive free shipping, AND get to keep of the clock time that you earned as being the highest bidder.
