Project Bundle-Up Auction

PITTSBURGH – From haute couture to autographed sports memorabilia, there is something for everyone on the Project Bundle-Up online auction. In its second year of online bidding, the former live televised broadcast has now gone to the web to reach even more people in the convenience of their own homes.

Founded 22 years ago by WTAE-TV Channel 4 and The Salvation Army, Project Bundle-Up has provided more than 200,000 needy kids and seniors with new winter outerwear. The annual auction is one of the primary ways that Project Bundle-Up raises critical funds to provide personal shopping trips for nearly 8,000 individuals each year.

More than 300 items have been provided by generous donors and are available for sale from July 1st through July 29th. Whether you are in the market for a Pittsburgh Steelers jacket signed by the 2007 team, fine jewelry or flat screens, the Project Bundle-Up auction has something for everyone.

Simply log onto to either http://www.projectbundleup.com; http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com; or www.salvationarmy-wpa.org and follow the prompts and links. You may also access through eBay, however, items are only featured on that site for a maximum of seven days. You will be able to view all items during the month at http://www.projectbundleup.com but each week will feature new items up for bid on eBay. You will need to register with eBay to bid or buy an item. EBay will notify you and Project Bundle-Up if you are the successful bid winner. If so, you will receive an e-mail, including payment instructions. Checks, MasterCard, Visa and Discover are accepted. The Salvation Army will make arrangements with you regarding shipping and/or pickup. All sales are “as is” and final and cannot be returned for cash or exchange.
