We will be auctioning off a number of exciting and unique items to bid on in order to raise money for, not only the amazing children of Nkoaranga Orphanage but also for the benefit of other orphaned and vulnerable children in the surrounding community who we are able to support. The more items we have the more money we can raise.
We have lots of fantastic opportunities to bid on!
Items that have already been donated by friends of The Small Things include:
– $100 Gift Certificate towards a 7 night cruise
– Handmade multicolored Kitenge quilt cover – a unique Tanzanian item!
– Hot air balloon ride for 2! Choose from 150 cities
– Hand crocheted sterling silver and pearl bracelet
– Fantastic 7 night resort vacation of your choice!
Other items available to bid on will fund a specific need at the orphanage. For example:
– New uniforms
– One month preemie care
– One month’s food
– Six month internship
– One year’s mama salary
When? The auction starts on February 1st, 2014 and will end on February 15th, 2014.
Where? As previously stated, this auction will be fully accessible online, wherever you are in the world! Check out our Spread the Love Auction to view current items that have already been donated, how to donate an item yourself, and to see how it all works!
Why? Our goal is to buy a 3.5 acre piece of land to create a children’s village, where the children will live until they are in their late teens, as opposed to the current system where they are put directly into boarding school at the age of 5.
Not only that……but the children’s village will also allow us to take in many more orphaned children, including those with HIV and other health conditions, as well as expand our outreach program to keep children with their families whenever possible.
Can you help? We are still in search of more items and/or services to add to our online auction! Whether you have 1 or 100 of these to contribute, your participation is an invaluable part of our fundraising efforts. You can donate an item or service online by clicking here. You can donate cash, or even become a sponsor and have your company’s logo placed on our site so you could develop new business and be helping the children at the same time! Promotional considerations are available at Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze levels. Or, come and bid in February!
Have fun with this! There are so many exciting things available to bid on, with such successful and rewarding outcomes to be achieved. We would love for you to be a part of it.
