About Our Auction
On September 19, 2023, after a 9+ month blockade of the region, the authoritarian government of Azerbaijan attacked civilians in Artsakh, and on September 23rd it took control of the territory. 120,000 Armenians were subject to ethnic cleansing, as they were forced to flee their native land to avoid the massacres. Now, their ancestral homeland of over 3,000 years is completely cleared of its native Armenian population. We are witnessing a humanitarian catastrophe as an entire indigenous population is forced to leave everything behind; their belongings, homes, land, and cultural heritage.
This auction is designed to raise money to help with relief efforts to aid displaced Armenian families from Artsakh.
All donations will be given directly to these 501c3 non-profits. All four of these vetted organizations have a strong presence working on the ground in Armenia.
