Fun facts about our community!
Did you know the top reasons people come to our events? 77% came to meet interesting people, 71% came for life advice, and 42% for career advice. A whopping 89% have learned something they’d think of or start doing differently in their lives. We're growing the pie — 38% are incentivised by Time Auction to volunteer, with 91% say volunteering taught them about the social issues and are driven to continue contributing to the causes.
Your support means the world to us. Without each of you who volunteered your time, and the generous donors who gave time or money, it would have just been a bunch of us asking people to grab a bite. This is a true testament of how kindness goes far — each of us doing a little ended up creating a massive and rippling impact. Our team consists of 2 full-time staff and 14 volunteers, and every time someone donates to our charity, someone does a little happy dance — If you'd like to help further our mission, we'd be grateful for any big or small donation. From the bottom of our hearts, thanks for being part of our community! With gratitude, Fion, Suetyi & Time Auction team
