With a little help from A-bian, Ma Ying-jeou and Chinatrust scion Jeffrey Koo Jr., Ebay yesterday kicked off another star-studded charity auction that would benefit the Taiwan Fund for Children and Families.
'We are more than happy to launch this charity campaign for the Taiwan Fund, one of the local welfare organizations that is in dire need of financial assistance,' Ebay Country Manager James Fang announced at yesterday's media gathering.
'Businesses, I think, should also never lose sight of the importance of giving something back to society.'
The charity auction, which officially started yesterday, will run for 10 days. Items on the auction block included an A-bian doll that was autographed by President Chen Shui-bian himself, a pair of Nike jogging shoes from Taipei Mayor Ma Ying-jeou, a Kamuipro golf club from Jeffrey Koo Jr., a limited-edition only Ikepod wristwatch from Minsheng Pao Publisher Wang An-chia, and a Giant MeMe2 city bike from Chunghwa Telecom to name "
