About Our Auction

Bid on 8 unique Giving Voice "Mentoring Through Social Cause" posters designed by our program mentor/mentee partners. All proceeds benefit Giving Voice.

In October 2018, Giving Voice hosted eight mentor/mentee matches between professional AIGA graphic artists and VSA Texas young adults with disabilities. The social cause posters were designed in four Saturday working sessions. Each mentee receives a professionally printed copy of the poster and one framed copy is available for auction. All proceeds go back into the program for 2019 when we host another group of young graphic designers and their mentors.
