iDonate have offered to auction the scrapped e-Voting Machines for charity through their online Charity Auction Shop. Buyers would nominate a charity to benefit from the purchase of a unit.
iDonate are calling on Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan to make available some of the scrapped e-Voting Machines in an effort to raise much needed revenue for charities across Ireland.
Alan Coyne, Marketing Manager for iDonate estimates that €500,000 to €1,000,000 could be raised for some of the 12,000 non profit organisations in Ireland through the sale of a portion of the 7,000+ units. He says “iDonate are seeing huge interest from charities and fundraisers to make the units available for charity events”.
iDonate, a Galway based web marketing company, have made available a free fundraising platform to charities and non-profits. The services include online donations, fundraising pages, SMS text campaigns and an eBay like auction shop where the public upload items for sale while nominating a charity to be the beneficiary of the sale or auction.
