Growing Hope's 2015 Buy Local Online Auction Now Accepting Donations!

It is that time of year again! Growing Hope is running an online silent auction from Monday, November 23 to Monday, December 7. You can donate TODAY to help us keep building healthy people, places, and economies in 2015 and beyond!

To keep it simple to carry out, we're doing the auction entirely for gift certificates for goods or services-- e.g. massage or bodywork, financial consultation, music lessons, hair styling, flower arranging, energy auditing, gutter cleaning, knitting lessons, window washing, etc. You can offer what you do professionally, or any skill you feel is strong enough to share.
We're excited that this will be a win-win way to get attention to local service-providers and other businesses for the holidays!

Learn more and fill out our donation form online here.
