Timeraiser

Have you ever heard of the Timeraiser?

The Timeraiser is an event that takes place in multiple cities in Canada where throughout the evening, you meet with different volunteer agencies and match your skills to their needs. Once you have made your matches you are eligible to bid on artwork. The twist is rather than bid money, you bid volunteer hours.

That’s right, you bid on artwork by stating the number of hours you will donate to certain volunteer organizations. Like any silent auction, the highest bid wins the piece, and then you have 12 months to complete your pledge.

I attended this fabulous event a few years ago in London since my lovely friend Gillian volunteers with the organization that helped put it together. It was a great night. I made lot’s of great contacts with organizations I’d like to get involved with and bid on some gorgeous artwork (I didn’t win anything…womp womp…)

Now for my super exciting news…

One of my paintings was selected for the silent auction for this years event, taking place on Thursday May 2nd, 2013 in London, ON at The Arts Project, at 203 Dundas Street.

36x16" - Acrylic on 3 12x16" canvases

If you haven’t already, then get your tickets here, as the event usually sells out several weeks in advance.

You can also check out their website to preview all the artwork that will be available that night, as well as get some more information about the volunteer organizations that will be participating.

I hope to see you all there 🙂 Oh, and nothing would make me happier than to know that you bid your time on any of the fabulous works of art being auctioned off (especially mine;) )!

Have you bought your tickets yet? What are you waiting for?!
