In line with the celebration of the 20th anniversary of National Children’s month, UNICEF Philippines will hold the third annual Auction for Action where donated works of art from various award-winning Filipino artists will be auctioned and the proceeds will be used to enrich the lives of youths all over the country.
In an effort to surpass the amount that they’ve raised (over Php3M) on the previous year, the humanitarian organization is looking to try new stuff such as making the bidding available online. According to Daphne Oseña-Paez, UNICEF PH’s Special Advocate for Children, this allows them to reach a wider audience sans the big overhead cost.
Another new element of this year’s fund-raising initiative is that the UNICEF PH will be exhibiting the item that’ll be auctioned off at the Yuchengco Museum at the RCBC Plaza in Makati.
The online bidding for this year’s Auction for Action will start on the 21st of October and will end on the 27th. For more information about this event and/or other projects you can head over to UNICEF Philippines’ official website.
