Project Volunteer Auction - In Numbers

As you should be aware, Greenhouse is currently a running a project with the aim of encouraging people to take on voluntary work. The idea of Project: Volunteer Auction, is that people bid on art pieces, generously donated by local artists, but instead of bidding money, they big volunteer hours with an organisation of their choice.

We ran the auction on the Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector (MCVS) stand at the Trade Fair over the last week and it will remain open until next Wednesday 13th July via our website.

The project has been an amazing success so far, MUCH greater than our initial expectations.

Here's a resume of the project so far:

Contributing Artists: 8

Total paintings up for Auction: 11

Total Photo prints up for Auction: 9

Plus 2 full Tango courses

Number of Voluntary Organisations accepting volunteers: 18

Number of volunteer hours raised so far: 717

Total number of hours bidded (including all bids, not just top bids): 1021

Visit to take part in the auction and help us reach 1000 hours!
