Every day, 1 in 9 people don’t get enough to eat. Most of these people are in faraway places, and that can make world poverty seem like a distant, insurmountable problem. But it isn’t! All it would take to cut global poverty in half would be a donation of $344 from every person in North America!
THE MAIN EVENT
TAKING AUCTION AGAINST HUNGER
This February 8th, you’ll have an opportunity to have a blast while making a difference in world poverty. Last year this event raised $7620 for Oxfam, which allowed us to feed 213 kids for an entire year!
Be a part of the 2nd annual Taking Auction Against Hunger event, complete with live music, a cash bar, and the most exciting part: a LIVE auction with an amazing auctioneer, Dan Clark (he’s even done an auction where Jay Leno made an appearance!). Net proceeds of the evening will go to OXFAM!
Around the globe, OXFAM works to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. We have chosen to give the proceeds to OXFAM because it is renowned as being one of the most effective organizations in the world in reducing poverty.
