If you sell on Ebay, you can choose to have your seller fees donated to the FUAC instead of going to Ebay. Go here to select the FUAC as a favorite non-profit. When you do that & select "Ebay Gives", they send us a check whenever you sell something.
When you buy online from REI, Backcountry.com, Patagonia, or NRS by clicking on the links below, they donate a portion of your purchase to the FUAC. REI will ship your purchase for free to a local store.

And you still get the gas points!
