Best eBay auction ever: Pre-owned Purity Ring for sale, proceeds go to Planned Parenthood

PurityRingEbay

Someone brilliant* is selling their old purity ring on eBay, with all proceeds going to Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles. It’s part of eBay’s Giving Works program, where you can designate your sale proceeds to a specific charity. Seems like a cool idea, and the actual item up for grabs is perfect.

The auctioner’s copy says

This purity ring has a double-band and is etched with True Love Will Wait. It’s gently used and looks like new. This isn’t weird. Really. It’s just that … how should I say this? … the ring is no longer needed. What do I have in common with Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and Nick Jonas? They don’t wear their purity rings anymore, and neither do I. This ring will bring you good luck!

*Full disclosure: This auction is by one of my favorite feminism/sexuality rabble-rousers, and she acquired the ring not at her church’s youth group, but for ‘research purposes’ only. I think it’s genius and a great way for all of us to raise some cash for PPLA. Excuse me while I place a bid right now!
