Many of my listed items are fundraisers for ECHO in Northern Virginia. Please see our charity website at www.echo-inc.org for more information about the ways we serve the needy in the greater Washington DC area. We sell items donated to us but which are of little or no use to our clients on-line, in local consignment shops, and at our bi-annual yard sales. The money we raise goes directly to the needy in our area. We are an all volunteer charity with three to five individuals selling various types of items on-line at any time. ECHO stands for Ecumenical Community Helping Others. I have been a volunteer there for over 10 years. From one fourth to one-half of my sales are of items owned by ECHO. Each charity auction is clearly marked as such. Half or more of my inventory are my personal items and not for charity; these will not display the charity marker.
