Our Favorite Giraffe loving eBay Member passed away today

Helen "Giraffer" Ziber Smith

Helen Ziber Smith will be sadly missed within the eBay community as she passed away today in peace
under the loving care of Hospice with her family near by. She touched many hearts.
eBay Id: Giraffer. Please take a moment to visit her ME page and pay a bit of tribute. Helen was so proud to be an eBay member:

Her wishes were to not send flowers but to make a donation to a Hospice of choice.

List an item on eBay and include in the title "For Helen Giraffer" As an eBay community we CAN make a difference in honor of Helen.
The donations can be anywhere from 10% to 100% using eBay Giving Works. Search for a Hospice in your area by selecting the State:
Or if you prefer, make a donation to your local hospice in loving memory of Helen Ziber Smith aka: Giraffer

I've know Helen for years through the eBay group and boards. She was a groupie and a boardie always willing to give a tip and send you in the right direction like an eBay crossing guard!  My first eBay live event was Boston 2007 and I was looking forward to finally meeting up with her. My first stop was the eBay Group room and my eBay life changed from that moment forward!

It was not only awesome to spend some time with her and finally meet her in person, BUT to watch her receive the Hall of Fame award was awesome! I was so happy for her and I was so excited to report it to the groups while everyone that didn't attend was cheering her on within the eBay group land and boards, The eBay community was honoring her at eBay live and online! What a cool experience that was as I was a bit of a groupie addict myself! :-)

Who knew I would actually be following in her footsteps the following year also receiving the Hall of Fame award, WOW and then we both were selected to pass along the charity checks on stage with John Donoahe and Lorrie  Norrington.  

Oh I could go on as there are so many fond memories I have with Helen so for now, I'm happy to know she is free from cancer and pain. Life is far too short so treasure those moments and appreciate your friends and family because one day, you will be missed too just like me.  RIP Dear Girraffer!

Success is just a Click away at eBay

When you list items on eBay Success is just a click away!

It only takes ONE click for a buy it now to be secure and thanks to PayPal we can be even more sure!

Listing items one by one paying attention to the final sum.

Adding keywords is important. Type them in and check again. Forget about WOW, Look here at ME although one I do like if it fits is .....  FREE SHIPPING!

Success is just a click away!

A click to list, a click to buy either way it's a click away!

My eBay friend at the Depression Glass Warehouse likes to say:
"List more - sell more! Can't sell it if it ain't listed!"

I love that motto as it's so true,  If you can't click to list then people cannot click to buy!

Success is just a click away at eBay!

Wishing everyone a success and happy clicking in 2012! 

We are clicking success at VOL!
