[Las Vegas, NV ] – Monday, January 30, 2023 – A fundraising auction hosted by GunBroker.com® benefiting NSSF’s Project ChildSafe®, raised a total of $39,330 for Project ChildSafe. A program of NSSF, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, Project ChildSafe works to help prevent firearm accidents, thefts, and misuse.
GunBroker.com®, the world’s largest online marketplace for firearms, hunting, and shooting, generated a tremendous amount of awareness for Project ChildSafe and donation partners.

Between GunBroker.com, NSSF, and donation partners, dozens of press releases promoting the auction went live between the first day of the auction, December 26, 2022, and the last day of the auction, January 20, 2023.

Throwing its support behind Project ChildSafe, GunBroker.com donated all services related to the month-long hosting of the auctions free of charge and provided featured placement on its homepage for each of them.
Joe Bartozzi, NSSF’s President and CEO, and Chairman of the Project ChildSafe Foundation had this to say about the auction:
“We are thrilled to accept this donation from GunBroker.com in support of NSSF’s Project ChildSafe program.
