2013 TLS On-line Auction

Labyrinth Lovers! The Labyrinth Society’s annual fundraiser auction is kicking into gear now and we need your donations! As in the past, we will operate the auction through the Bidding For Good website which, in their own words, “is the intersection of charity and shopping—the auction site that allows you to shop for great deals while supporting the causes you care about.” 

We, of course, care about labyrinths. The proceeds from the auction keep the wheels running at The Labyrinth Society and make possible the Gatherings, the World Wide Labyrinth Locator and all the other services and support of TLS that you value, through our amazing network of volunteers. We all have marvelous and unique perspectives to offer the world of labyrinths. The auction is pivotal in maintaining and furthering our faith in the creative processes that emerge from the building and use of labyrinths. It allows us to promote “networking opportunities to experience transformation” in our global community. We need you to make it a success. You have two ways to contribute to this good work: donate an auctionable item, and bid on items once the auction is up and running. The Bidding For Good website is ready and waiting for your donation.

If you’ve donated before, thank you and please do it again. For artists, musicians and vendors, this is a great way to market your product to hundreds of people worldwide! Think a bit outside the labyrinth, although anything labyrinthine is always welcome. The more items or services we offer, large or small, the more money we can raise. In your local area, is there an event planned for which you can donate tickets? Perhaps you have season tickets to the local playhouse, sports team, or orchestra. Do you have a professional musician friend who will donate tickets to a show? How about a wine-tasting event? Anyone with a B&B or rental they could make available for a weekend? Particularly you west-coasters: can you donate a couple of days at your beach house around the time of the Gathering in September so a traveler can extend their stay in the Great Northwest and make it a vacation? Will you be doing a presentation or sponsoring an event around that time and donate tickets? Do you provide a spiritual service, do readings, massages or retreats? Are you an artist with an artwork you’d love to share or have a book you would like to donate?  Collectibles, home and garden, gourmet items, hotels, gift cards, jewelry, trips…consider what you might have or have access to that could contribute to the future of TLS. Get creative! Donors will be responsible for shipping their items to the winning bidders.

Follow the steps below to donate and help support the fun and creative spark that is the TLS. It’s easy and quick. The kick-off date for the auction is April 1st, Fool’s Day, just for the fun of it, so we need your donations now! It will close on May 11th, the day before Mother’s Day, so consider something Mom would like as a gift. The time will go by fast so help us get and keep the wheels turning now. And thanks for your dedication and devotion to all things labyrinthine.
