Monday morning at 8 AM Pacific, eBay will kick off a Daily Deal that is raising money for a charitable organization. Hollywood Records is running a cause-marketing campaign on eBay to help raise awareness for its new Jonas Brothers  CD while raising money and awareness for the Jonas Brothers own charity, Change For The Children Foundation. Hollywood Records donated 900 signed CDs of their Lines, Vines and Trying Times.

The eBay Daily Deal will offer the CD for $14.98 (Buy It Now) with free shipping. Eric Gazin's company AuctionCause, which specializes in marketing and fundraising using eBay, coordinated the deal for the record company.

Nothing more than yet another cynical exploitative PR attempt by ebay to look like the one of the good guys of corporate America.

Let's all see if we can an off ebay email address for the Jonas Brothers and tell them about ebay management.

wow, ebay helps a charity and haters still jump on them. Seriously, take all that hate and do something constructive. Like maybe support a charity in your area.

That would be worst than being in an airplane at 40,000 feet and it being the captains time to go.

''How would you like JD to show up at your house with a video cammera ?''

Yet another good reason for our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Is Ebay charging Ebay fees, Paypal fees or really donating 100% of revenues received? And yes, it's free advertising for greedbay.

The Daily Deal by eBay sure is starting to smell like a QVC rip-off.... and that is exactly what eBay is turning into. Next thing you know Joan Rivers will have a Daily Deal with a jewelry item or Marie Osmond will have one with a exclusive eBay doll. They have stolen my eBay and I want it back! Why don't they just start a new site that is directed at Antiques, Vintage Collectibles and One of a Kind items with different rules and such that would work better for buyers and sellers of THOSE items? Why do they go to so much trouble to alienate a established group of sellers? SO STUPID!

Few if any corporations do anything strictly for 'charity' because their odea of 'charity' is to make money while appearing to be selfless.

In this case, ebay has several hidden and self serving motives for their so called 'charitable' activities. As someone has already pointed out, are all associated seller fees waived?

Probably not.

Three days after the anniversary of September 11, I am reminded of NEG MEG WHITMAN'S acclaimed 'charitable' international scam in which ebay and PayPal profited from the millions in revenue derived from the pain and suffering of millions and the fees paid for by sellers.

Ebay does NOTHING truly charitable.

DEATH to ebay corp. in 2010.

Seems you have nothing more to contribute than name calling.

@ Ron

Business isn't "nice," is it Ron? And that's what this about: business.

Go peddle your "niceness" to The Ho, The No, and Til the Shill.
