Bid For The Environment at WWF’s Greener at 50 Auction

 

WWF

As part of World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) global network’s 50th Anniversary, WWF-Philippines held the launch of Greener at 50 fundraising online auction on December 7, 2011 at One Café Events Place, One Corporate Center Avenue, Ortigas Center, Philippines.

The event launched the Greener at 50 fundraising online auction, in partnership with    E-bay Philippines, for the benefit of WWF-Philippines’ environmental sustainability projects all over the country.

 

I was fortunate to be invited in the said event; hosted by WWF-Philippines National Ambassador Rovilson Fernandez. Before the live auction started, we heard a short yet inspiring video message from the WWF-Philippines CEO and Vice Chair Ma. Lorenzo Tan.

I had 7 seeds to bid

After a scrumptious lunch with WWF team and members of the media, we were able to experience a live auction but this time using seeds as money! I have seen how auctions run, but it’s more exciting attending the live one and even more participating in the bidding for the environment, for the future!

The seeds that were collected will be planted in different conservation areas as part of WWF’s environmental efforts.

Winners took home items from shirts, umbrellas to pillows. I was lucky that day and got to bring home a photo taken by WWF-Philippines CEO and Vice Chair Lory Tan. Another photo taken by celebrity and influential photographer, Sara Black went to Carmella while Jeman got the trip to Hamilo Coast, one of WWF-Philippines’ conservation sites in the country.

Unlike other charity auctions, the organization’s Greener at 50 auction is geared to making people realize that everything is connected. The categories we’ve offered are different from one another and despite this, we learn that everything still goes back to nature,” said Marie Bretana, WWF-Philippines Individual Donor Program Online Officer.

Participate in the Greener at 50 online auction and visit www.ebay.ph/wwfgreenerat50 to start bidding.

WWF-Philippines will use the donations to turn individual efforts into collective actions as we look forward to more years of protecting and sustaining our living Planet.
