hugs.tf has partnered with ScrapTF to provide a way for your Team Fortress 2 & CS:GO item donations to be converted to their cash equivalents and donated to SpecialEffect. If you'd like to donate cash directly, this will be available soon!
Donors who give at least £10 ($15 USD) worth of items will be rewarded with an in-game medal! Donations made on our cash donation page also count towards a medal. You can earn the medal via combined item and cash donations. Medals will be awarded a few weeks after the event has concluded.
Items donated to hugs.tf through the ScrapTF Fundraiser System are converted to cash through the following procedure:
As soon as the transaction is complete, ScrapTF stores the cash value of your donation at the time it was made. This stored value does not change, even if the economy changes and the value of future donations we accept fluctuates. ScrapTF then transfers the items to a hugs.tf-specific Marketplace.tf account, and sells the items for cash at the price stated when the donation was made. In the event that the item is sold for a higher price than initially listed, the full sale value will be still donated.
Neither ScrapTF nor hugs.tf takes any portion of the donations. However, a 2% fee is taken from each item's sale value to cover the fee from the payment processors that ScrapTF uses. This fee is actually slightly higher than 2%, but ScrapTF takes that small hit to maximize the amount of money going to the charity. As an example, if a key sells for $2.00, the fee will be $0.04, and the final donated value will be $1.96.
The items will take time to sell. ScrapTF will periodically initiate a payout for the hugs.tf marketplace.tf account that goes directly to the SpecialEffect PayPal account. No hugs.tf staff will ever touch any of the money involved.
