Administrative costs for Comfort Doll Project are extremely low. The original founder, Donna Mair, is the sole administrator at this time. Our charity also has no physical office, hence no administration costs beyond costs associated with the band photos and guitar string bracelet auctions we run – these costs are:
- eBay fees
- Paypal fees
- photo enlargement costs for auctions that feature 8×10 glossies of bands
- cost of beads to create bracelets from donated used guitar strings
- postage to mail auction items to winning bidders
We strive to keep costs as low as possible -these are the only costs that are recouped, with 100% of proceeds of each auction or sale, going to World Vision Canada through their online Gift Catalog. When we ship comfort dolls to Icross Canada or Drops of Grace, that cost does not come out of our proceeds.
