Autism Light #457 is eBay.

eBay (NYSE: EBAY) is a multinational ecommerce corporation with headquarters in San Jose, California. eBay was founded in 1995 by Pierre Omidyar and is currently a multi-billion dollar corporation with operations in 30 countries. Products on eBay range from basic supplies to eccentric and unusual items. eBay is an Autism Light for the special effort it made to make a memorable moment for a boy with autism named Sammy in 2016.

The following is a YouTube video produced with the efforts of Sammy's mother and the eBay social media team. It was uploaded on December 12, 2016. The following video describes Sammy's love for eBay and their logo and how happy he was to receive some promotional items in the mail from eBay.

Autism Parents Earn Money for Expenses on eBay:  Without a doubt eBay has helped some autism parents earn extra money for the challenging expenses of autism by providing a platform where individuals can make a profit by selling their goods to others.

Autism Parents Can Purchase Resources on eBay: eBay has a special section on their commerce website called Special Needs and Autism Educational Toys. Parents can go directly there to review and purchase resources for the education and growth of their children with autism.

eBay for Charity: eBay has programs in place that allow sellers on their site to support autism. For example, their eBay for Charity program allows sellers to support autism charities by donating 10%-100% of the final selling price of their products to a designated charity (See News Story on the Autism Plus Website). The video below explains how eBay for Charity works.
