Levittown, PA, October 02, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Bling My Bra has launched its 2013 charity auction campaign on October 1st with two eBay-centric handcrafted art bras, the first of about 50 scheduled to go up for bid through October 15 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All proceeds benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation through eBay Giving Works. Bling My Bra founder/organizer Beth Cherkowsky will be on wsRadio.com's Ask Janelle show this week to discuss the campaign, which is run by a small group of eBay sellers from around the country.

First on the auction block is the Jabber Bra, created in honor of the eBay-colored Beanie Baby parrot who serves as mascot for the Chicagoland Area eBay Sellers Meetup Group. It has been signed by Jim "Griff" Griffith, host of eBay Radio and eBay's Senior Manager for Seller Advocacy; Jeff Terrell, Head of eBay Community; and Stacy Stella, from the eBay Social and Community team.

Also signed by eBay employees is the Blue-Footed Boobie Bra by Cheryl Weston. It has been autographed by Kellie Dickie from eBay's USPS team; Blake Young, from eBay's Shipping team; Jonathan Haney, from eBay's Seller Protection team; and Victoria Miera, from eBay's Social Customer Service Team.

More original handcrafted art bras will go up for auction every day for the first week of this month, with auctions running through October 15th. These unique works of art were created by various eBay members, ecommerce celebrities and companies, then donated for auction. eBay buyers are encourage to bid early and often. Since its inaugural campaign in 2009, Bling My Bra has raised more than $10,000 for breast cancer research and treatment.

Bling My Bra's 2013 Giving Works charity auctions can be found on eBay by searching for keywords "bling my bra" or by going to BlingMyBraStore.com.
