Donate an Item to the Auction
The Global Minded Project uses auction donations in three ways. The first is our "Shop Local" November campaign. During the month of November, leading up to Small Business Saturday, we spotlight different local businesses on our social media sights. We share the "Story Behind The Business", giving more opportunity for our community to connect with our artisans, makers and hard workers. The weekend before Thanksgiving, we have an online auction. This fundraiser isn't your ordinary auction where you get your item and go home. We work to have our listings connect the customer to the business directly.
Second, auction baskets are put together or large items are sold on their own at various events throughout the year. We match themed items, like IU red and white, and form higher value silent auction items.
Finally, we use donations to make connections within our community. These might be used in photo shoots, meeting giveaways, travel team incentives and achievement prizes.
In all ways, we are always focused on building more connections and more confidence right here in Bloomington.
