Tag Archives: volunteer rescue squad


For a few years, I have been using the “Giving Works” program on eBay to contribute a percentage of auction proceeds to local nonprofit groups.  I don’t typically publicize it well enough, though.  I’m sort of bashful that way.  But then, people who would support a cause may not always hear about it. 

So, from now on, I will try to announce changes in advance.

Chesapeake Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad has been this month’s chosen recipient.  This month’s total donation hasn’t been tallied yet, but so far it is up to about $15, which is $15 more than at the start.  There is one more week left of March, then a new local group will be selected.  Meanwhile, there is still time to support the volunteer rescue squad, feed an artist, and get great stuff

If you already have enough stuff, remember, you don’t have to purchase anything to make a direct donation to the volunteer rescue squad!  Just click the “Donate Now” tab from the above link.  Or, if you sell on eBay, consider donating that way.

(You could also give large piles of money to the artist just because I’m so darned nice, but there is currently no tax deduction for that.)

Five Leaf Clover on eBay

If you think four leaf clovers are rare, just try finding one with five or more leaves.

I’m sure I find them more often than most people, but there are fewer in comparison to the number of four leaf clovers I find.

Because they are so much more rare than the four leaf clover, it was hard to find information about them. In Appalachia, some believe them to be a bad omen, but they are believed to be extra good luck in most other places, and they are said to attract wealth. It is also said that the leprechauns bury their gold under a garden of four and five leaf clovers. I’m not digging up the pasture to check.. yet.

But, I am offering some five leaf clovers on eBay now, along with framed four leaf clovers.

10% of purchases will be donated to the Chesapeake Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad.
