When Is Jaclyn Hill's eBay Auction? Here's Everything You Need To Know About The Charitable Event
There's a new place to find Jaclyn Hill, and it isn't on YouTube. The makeup artist is trading in her powder brushes for another passion — fashion and animals. According to her Snapchat announcement, Hill is having an eBay auction and all the profits will go to an animal protection charity. Her fans are already going crazy about the first come, first serve sale, so here's everything you need to know.
It's no secret that Hill has a love for fashion. The YouTuber is always showing off her outfits on social media, most of which sell out the same day she poses in them. Now, instead of hoping the items stay in stock, you can purchase items that once hung in Hill's closet — but only if you're quick enough.
According to Hill's Snapchat, she's put together an eBay auction filled with 300 pieces of clothing and accessories. Hill's online sale will be on Thursday, Oct. 19 at noon ET/9 a.m. PT. Every single cent that Hill makes off her gently used clothing will go to the Humane Society of the United States.
She says on Snapchat that she chose the organization because it is currently helping displaced animals from Hurricane Irma, which hit her home state of Florida just weeks ago. Previously, the makeup artist received criticism from fans on Instagram for leaving the state and posting glam outfit photos in Chicago during the natural disaster.
All you have to do to participate is head over to her page on eBay called Jaclyn Hill Closet. Once the auction goes live on Oct. 19, you'll be able to buy an item immediately. Unlike the typical eBay setup, you won't be able to offer a certain amount of money. You'll only be able to buy it at the set price. Once it's gone, it's gone for good.
Hill gave a mini preview of all of the items that will be included in the sale on her Snapchat. Although the YouTuber said that the prices would be affordable, she showed off a large number of high-end brands like Chanel, YSL, Gucci, and Givenchy. She didn't give an example of any of the prices.
This isn't Hill's first time doing an eBay auction either. Her first time around was in November 2017. Just like this time, she put up a selection of clothing and accessories, but donated to the Cambodian Children's Fund. Every single item sold out last time in less than 24 hours and raised a whopping $22,000.
Tons of other celebrities have done similar sales as well, but not all of them have done well. In 2013, Kim Kardashian had an eBay sale, but only pledged 10 percent to charity, which her fans called her out on. Since then, the social media star has auctioned off her entire pregnancy wardrobe on eBay, but stuck with the same 10 percent donation.
Fans are super excited about both being able to buy Hill's clothing and the charitable aspect of the sale. From the looks of it, this collection is going to go extremely fast.
NO ONE can say @Jaclynhill doesn’t give back. You are truly amazing, and I am so excited for your auction for our furbabies in the world !!— Alexea (@warrenalexea) October 18, 2017
There's no denying that this girl loves her animals. She recently added two more "furbabies" to her family, although she doesn't mention if they were adopted from the Humane Society.
Fans don't even care about the details. Just give them a time and a place to shop.
