About Our Auction
Welcome to our Kingston Friends of Child Haven On-Line Auction! Due to the corona virus, we are unable to meet in person, but our support for Child Haven's 1,300 formerly destitute children and women's programs continues with this auction and other fund-raising efforts. If you have attended our previous Child Haven Dinners, you know that the Silent Auction is a highlight! This year's Covid-safe online adaptation features some Kingston craftspeople’s work, and many stunning, treasures that Bonnie and Robin purchase while visiting the Homes overseas. All bidding is online. Jackie will contact the winning bidders the day after the auction. We’ll arrange for volunteers to deliver purchases to Kingston area bidders or to ship purchases further afield. Please call Jackie at email@example.com if you have any questions. Please pay for your items by cheque upon delivery or on this web-site when the auction is over.
Many of our vendors 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.
About Child Haven International
Inspired by the ideals and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi, Child Haven International is a not for profit charity founded in 1985. We assist over 1300 children and women in South Asia by providing food, education, job training, health care, shelter and clothing, emotional support, and love.
CHI projects include 8 Homes for children in Nepal, India, and Bangladesh; 2 women's centers in India; and sponsorships for children and elders in Tibet. Information and pictures abound at www.childhaven.ca. If you'd like to make an easy online donation, go directly to www.childhaven.ca/donate.html.
The Edmonton Support Group has been holding annual dinners for Child Haven since the 1990’s! In previous years we have held Annual Fund-Raising Dinners that featured Live and Silent Auctions. This year we are replacing that live event with this on-line auction and an on-line gathering.
