About Our Auction
We all saw the pictures and video of the devastation left behind by Hurricane Harvey. We have also seen the power of the human spirit to lift others up in their time of need.
Recovery and rebuilding is still going on. Please help me raise money to donate to organizations that are providing relief to people and animals whose lives were upended by this devastating storm. Organizations like Austin Pets Alive, Southeast Texas Food Bank, Team Rubicon, and others will benefit.
100% of the net proceeds of this auction will go directly to these organizations. In addition to bidding on items, you may also make donations by clicking on the green "Donate" button.
A generous group of local businesses and individuals in the Austin, TX area have come together to donate some fantastic items for this auction. From art to vacation rentals to jewelry, there's something for everyone! Thank you for your support!
About Hurricane Harvey Fundraiser
I am a photographer who lives in Austin, and have close friends & family who were affected by hurricane Harvey. I organized this online auction in order to make a bigger financial contribution to relief efforts than I could do on my own.
It has been uplifting to see how my artist friends, Austin area businesses, & personal friends have given so generously to contribute their services, products, artwork, & personal items of value to raise money for this cause. A few of the organizations that are slated to benefit from the proceeds of this auction are Austin Pets Alive, Team Rubicon, Direct Relief, & Southeast Texas Food Bank. 100% of the net proceeds of this auction will go directly to these organizations.
To those of you placing bids*, know that you are participating in an auction run with integrity, transparency, and with the anticipation that we will bring comfort to those who have been affected by Harvey. Thank you for your support!
* Winning bidders are advised that for winning bids of $75 or more, the amount of the deductible contribution is generally limited to the excess of the money paid for the item over the fair market value of the goods or services provided [IRC Sec. 6115(a)(1)]. Please consult with an accountant or tax adviser to determine the extent to which your donation or winning bid amount is tax deductible.
