Sells via Sedo (Updated)

It appears that has sold via Sedo. According to Whois records, the current domain registrant of is Sedo LLC Transfer Service, which is generally the account domain names are placed in during the sales escrow process. Update:  According to a tweet from Sedo broker Dave Evanson, he brokered in a $500,000 deal.

I looked through my email, and I saw that Dave Evanson was recently brokering In fact, Dave listed for sale for $800,000 via the Weekly Brokerage Listings article in June.

I reached out to Dave to see if he could share any information about the sale, and he confirmed that the domain name has been sold. Dave told me, “At this point I am able only to confirm I have been brokering and the domain is currently in the process of being transferred. I will provide updates as appropriate. Thanks.”

Prior to moving to the Sedo escrow account, the domain name was privately registered at GoDaddy.

Interestingly, appears to be an active website. On the about page on, it says “The mission of can be summarized in two words: optimizing philanthropy. wants to help donors and nonprofits make the best use of charitable giving. We are currently focused on making it easier and more cost-efficient for donors and the causes they support to donate, raise, and invest money.” Prior to the privacy, was registered to an organization called American Charities Marketing, Inc..

It remains to be seen who acquired and if they also acquired the website and/or business. If more information about the sale is publicized, I will update the article and share the information with you.

Afternoon Update: Dave Evanson just tweeted that sold for $500,000.

  1. Make a Wish uses the domain which suits it perfectly. Curious, with this word do you think it would be better to have over

  2. We will have to wait to see who is a buyer, since Sedo is not going to tell us, same as no information was provided for ~$10 million sale.

    Interesting part is that now uses name servers and it redirects to, both names in the ownership of ALF TEMME, the guy who sells an exercise machine for around $15,000 a piece, same guy who violated the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) and infringed on Microsoft’s Hotmail and MSN trademarks, and was sued by Microsoft for $2.4 million.

  3. may have been purchased by a crowdsourced fund raising company

    @ 5% fee for fund raising, plus cc fees, the crowdsourced fund raising market has taken off

    domain acq price may pay for itself quickly if purchased by such a savvy entity…

    my guess buyer is:

    according to their website they have processed over $ 1.2 Billion for `100k NonProfits to date
