Charity Auctions In The US: How To Find The Best Ones

Charity (and benefit) auctions are auctions that help raise money and awareness for a cause. These auctions can be used to help people in need. Money donated through these auctions goes to a variety of charities, which help poor people get food, clothing, and shelter. Donations also go to medicine, research, and hospitals. Then there are charities for drug rehabilitation, mental health and so many other things like education, environment, relief efforts, human rights, etc.

Who Are the Recipients of Charity Auctions

Charity auctions are for those of you who want to give back to the community and build a better world for tomorrow. Your donation will go towards a noble and charitable cause. Moreover, you get something in return, too, i.e., the item you just won at the auction that you have been wanting for so long! This could be anything, really a rare collector's item, a historical article, a celebrity souvenir, or something even as simple as an all-expenses paid holiday to paradise. In a charities auctions event, everyone wins.

Charity auctions are also great for non-profit organizations. Non-profit organizations can host or sponsor charity auctions and auction off valuable items to help raise funds and support for their goals. People tend to feel more connected to the cause if they win or buy something at a charity auction for that cause. This is because when people willingly buy something that helps a good cause, they develop a more interpersonal relationship with that thing and that cause. So, again, charity auctions are a win-win situation for everyone - even the auctioneer. In this case, the auctioneer - a non-profit organization - raises money for their cause while also getting the love and support from their community that they need.

When all is said and done - we all need a little more good in the world and charity and benefit auctions speak to humanity in all of us.

"Let's get small"Back in the late 70's and early 80's comedian Steve Martin did a stint about a new drug called small. The point of his new drug was people would shrink and get small. "Hey dude, let's get small" was his catch phrase and for a while people were joking about getting small. Today however, the term could easily be applied to the current trend of people downsizing their estates or "getting small". Many seniors, mid-lifers and empty...
