About Our Auction
This year we will be offering a few select items in this on-line auction while the bulk of our auction items will be available through an in-person Silent Auction at our November 4th Dinner https://www.childhaven.ca/fundraiser.hardwick2023.html Both auctions feature stunning, hard-to-find-in-Vermont treasures that Robin and Bonnie purchase while visiting Child Haven Homes overseas, along with some amazing local items donated by our generous Vermont supporters. All bidding is online; purchase can be made on-line, and pickup varies per item.
Many of our vendors in India, Nepal, Tibet and Bangladesh are themselves long-time supporters of Child Haven, familiar with the work that Child Haven accomplishes in their communities. They often offer special prices with which they can support Child Haven; as much as possible we also seek fair trade crafts.
Auction purchases directly fund Child Haven Children's Homes and projects. CHI functions with particularly low overhead, in large part to the dedicated efforts of volunteer fundraisers and a committed base of grassroots donors. Your support is most appreciated!
