Welcome to the Annual TLS Online Auction! Donations now accepted - bidding begins
at 12:00 AM, Saturday, May 5th!
The Labyrinth Society annual Online Auction will be open from May 5-20, 2018. This action-packed event provides a fun and engaging way for members and non-members around the world to support our organization. This year marks our 20th anniversary and we want to celebrate this important milestone! With this in mind, our 2018 Online Auction kicks-off on World Labyrinth Day. What better way to show your support of TLS and the global labyrinth community than by participating in World Labyrinth Day activities and by donating to, or bidding in our auction? We hope that you will consider ways in which you can show your support and we thank you in advance for all that you do to help support labyrinth work around the globe!
We are excited to get things started, and delighted to announce that donations are now being accepted for our event, even though bidding doesn't begin until May 5th. What's more? We will continue to accept donations and sponsors throughout the event. Adding new items each day intrigues and entices us all to return, so please be sure to check this site daily. Seek out the wonderful treasures up for auction! Bookmark this page! Bid often! Bid generously (it's good karma) and HAVE FUN! The more items and sponsorships we have, the more money we can raise to support our mission: To support all those who create, maintain and use labyrinths, and to serve the global community by providing education, networking and opportunities to experience transformation.
Our 2018 online auction fundraising goal is $5,000. Please help us to meet and exceed this goal. Imagine what TLS could accomplish with $5,000, $8,000, $10,000, or more! As we celebrate 20 years we also look forward to the future and have many projects under development that require extra financial support. For example, we are currently working on an app for the World Wide Labyrinth Locator and we are planning for a complete website upgrade offering new features to our membership and visitors. These projects and many others require extra funding and support above and beyond our normal operating budget. Your contributions to our Online Auction will help us achieve these goals.
Give a little and get a lot in return.
Whether you have 1 item or 100 items to contribute, your participation is an invaluable part of our fundraising efforts. By donating an item or service directly online, you'll be helping to raise money for our organization, and you'll receive a mention on our site that can link back to your own web page.
Any donated item or service, large or small, will be appreciated. The more items we have, the more money we can raise. Suggestions include products, services, expertise, anything labyrinth, gift cards, gourmet items, retreats, trips, art collectibles, books, home & garden, and things specific to your area of the country -- or world! Items do not need to be limited to labyrinths or labyrinth-related themes. Anything will do!
For example: Sports Events, Concerts, a sunset ride on your pontoon, tea-time with Grandma Sadie's tea cups or tee-time for four at your favorite golf course in Scotland! Be creative!
And hey, if you happen to be connected with an organization or individual that could become a sponsor, that would be AWESOME!
Here's an idea: do your friends have a restaurant, a boutique, a spa or windshield repair business? Ask them for goodies too, and keep it local. Develop a contest with a youth group to see who can get the most donations! Involve your church, group, or bowling league. Just get involved!
Remember holidays, birthdays, weddings, and graduations when you shop, or when you plan your Spring/Summer events!
Show your support by clicking on the "Donate Items" button to contribute to our catalog.
Please note: Due to the way this auction is managed on Bidding For Good, all donors will be responsible for shipping items directly to winning bidders.
Why Not Become a Sponsor?
Place your company's logo on our site that links back to your own web page and you could develop new business. We can track how often your logo is viewed and clicked to see just how many people are accessing your site. This is an excellent way to "give back what you get" -- and we all know that the "Law of Attraction" reminds us about reciprocity.
While generosity is its own reward, please remember the tax advantages of giving if you itemize your tax deductions.
Thank you for helping to keep TLS moving forward!
