Auction for Action went live last Monday. The UNICEF team and I have been working on this for many months. These seven days are exciting and nerve wracking. We are hoping to raise P5 million for UNICEF to help fund the Supervised Neighbourhood Play program. We are so grateful for the generous support of almost 100 artists and designers. And thank you to all of you who tweet and share in Facebook links to the UNICEF Auction for Action site, www.ebay.ph/unicef. Those using mobile gadgets as opposed to laptops and desktop computers can view the auction site at http://stores.ebay.ph/unicefph.
Here are more photos from the #AuctionforAction press event at Yuchengco Museum lobby. I wanted to show the items so you can see the scale. Because we are totally an online event, the true beauty of the pieces may not be evident in the online catalog. You can see the pieces at Yuchengco Museum for free.
Where possible, I posted direct links to the auction site for the items I’m showing below. After October 27th, the links won’t be active anymore.
The Kinks and Curls lamp by Vikki Rodriguez of Accessorias is made of many curled up rattan strips. You put them together by linking the strips into a hanging chain. It sort of reminds me of monkeys in a barrel.
