eBay's Auction For America Is Over

from the and-the-total-is...? dept

eBay’s well hyped Auction for America is just about over but they won’t say how much they’ve raised. The original plan was $100 million in 100 days, but in the first 50 days they only raised a little over $5 million. Since then, they have brought in some high-profile names and corporations to donate big ticket items for auction, but somehow I doubt it’s $95 million worth. Hopefully eBay will at least tell us how much they did raise. I would like to believe the reason they refuse to announce numbers is because not all the auctions are over – rather than being embarrassed at not meeting their numbers.
