3. Help spread the word through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media networks

The featured bras are exquisite one-of-a-kind creations, incorporating fantasy, humor, and — above all — originality. Some will be created by celebrities, including Marsha Collier, bestselling author of the eBay For Dummies series and ecommerce expert. Some will represent hobbies or interests. EBay Radio will also be submitting a bra. There will be additional opportunities to donate to the important cause of breast cancer awareness through listings for related items in the Bling My Bra store.
The eBay auctions will be featured throughout the month of October through eBay seller ID BlingMyBra and keyword search “bling my bra”. Proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen For the Cure.
