Hospital advocacy through trained volunteers to provide emotional support and Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners to perform forensic investigations which may not otherwise be available at certain hospitals.

Counseling services for survivors of sexual violence and their friends and family.

Educational programs that raise awareness and emphasize the effects of bullying, sexual harassment, and sexualized violence to individuals, schools, law enforcement, medical practitioners, and businesses.

Quickly enter the item number you wish to bid on and we’ll take you right to it; showing you all the details you need to make your next bid. You can also browse by category, No-Bid items and Buy Now items. You can even make a donation. NOTE: This screen is always available by pressing the house icon just under the official time.

On the item detail page you can see the current winning bid, winning bidder, Buy Now option (if available) and bidding increment. Simply type in the max amount you are willing to pay and press “Place Bid”. We will confirm your bid and set you as the current winner. The system will continue to bid on your behalf up to your maximum value. We call it Max Bidding.

What if I am outbid?!

We keep track of your bids for you and once you have been outbid we’ll immediately send a text message to your phone and show you an on-screen alert. You can easily jump back into your account and make sure you don’t miss out.

Watch your bids like a pro with My Bids.

You won’t miss a beat with your “My Bids” page which shows you items you are winning, watching and losing. We keep this page focused on the items you’re intersted in so you don’t get distracted and lose an item.
