Welcome to the 10th Annual Art and Photography Benefit Auction Event

While we will be hosting this event here on my personal site, as I have a server and have not moved the nonprofit over yet due to its complex nature, all funds will 100% benefit Ending Cancer in Our Generation to provide an art scholarship and grant to a cancer survivor and caregiver. We are an art community for anyone who has been affected by cancer working to make the world a better place. All items will be shipped unless prior local pickup is arranged. Art will be extremely well packaged to make sure it arrives safely. We ship via USPS which will include insurance for the amount paid just in case unless other methods are preferred. For all purchases over $50 insurance will need to be billed separately to follow USPS shipping allowances- they recently lowered this, I apologize. Please do not message to split the boxes or to purchase one item out of the baskets. Baskets are shipped as is and the weight and size of each box are listed. This is simply due to having only one employee, me, to do this. 😊 I have always had great experiences with USPS Priority mail, and it should arrive to most locations in 2-3 days for most items historically speaking.   Items that can be rolled will be rolled for a safer shipping. Artwork has varying price starts but all items have a $5 bid increase as I felt a $10 increase may put artwork out of reach quite quickly. We are also offering stickers, and smaller art here for anyone who would like to help but just doesn’t have the room for a big piece of art right now. We appreciate all the support we get, and I hope that I have provided enough fun options for everyone! ^_^

Winners are responsible for all shipping and insurance costs. Please see the USPS Postage Calculator website here to calculate the shipping costs :

Like our normal online benefits, here are 10 fully themed baskets of goodies each with at least 10 items!

How to Participate?

This year we are trying a brand-new auction plug in to make it even easier to win cool items and help fund art scholarships and grants for cancer survivors and caregivers! It is through our Word press- Woo Commerce store and hopefully it works well ^_^

SET UP AN ACCOUNT TO BID NOW

Looks like with this plug-in, an account is necessary, please set up an account when bidding or use the link here. The plus side, you’ll now have an account for our art community when we roll out. Thank you for your understanding in this extra step.

After setting up an account, click the Bid Now button below the item/basket. On October 31st we will close all bidding and notify the winners. Bid increases are in $5 increments so make sure to bid accordingly. We hope you have a good time and find something new and exciting! Again, Please do not message to split the boxes or to purchase one item out of the baskets. Baskets are shipped as is and the weight and size of each box are listed. This is simply due to having only one employee, me, to do this. 😊

Where the Money Goes?

Ending Cancer in Our Generation is a 501(c)3 not for profit and is registered with Secretary of State and Attorney General of Illinois. We follow all state and federal legal requirements as such. We will move to this server Q4 of 2021, but as this server is the most secure, we will host this event here for safety and security.

Artist Wanting to Join Our Community or Donate to a Future Event

Our Q4 2021 move to this server will include a massive community upgrade with personalized pages and the ability to become more involved in the work we are trying to achieve. We are always accepting donations of all styles and types of art. We are an encouraging and supportive community. Your participating Bidding account can also be used as a community account as well.

2021 10th Annual Benefit Auction Baskets

Ten Baskets for Ten Years!

Like our normal online benefits, here are 10 fully themed baskets of goodies! Please click the images to see larger versions. Baskets include both new and used donated items. I have described them to the best of my ability and have researched fair market values extensively to make sure pricing is as fair as possible. Like all other years, baskets will be shipped USPS priority mail with tracking and insurance. Winners are responsible for all shipping and insurance costs.

2021 10th Annual Benefit Art and Photography Showcase Auctions

I am working hard on editing and creating the pages for the art and photography showcase, but I wanted to get the baskets up since I am behind and were losing Spooky Season every day that goes by! Please check back to see more artist and art added soon!

Matthew Fish has many talents and create pieces that are more applicable to a wider variety of people as well as two sizes for each piece. All pieces will be mailed directly to the winner. Please find his donated pieces below.

2021 10th Annual Benefit Art and Photography Showcase Auctions 2nd Round

As these items were delayed due to my own physical limitations, I felt it would be unfair to punish others for this, so all art below will have one month from when I receive it. Remember all order will be shipped via Priority mail USPS. Thank you for your understanding. You can also find my donated art below as well.

We are expecting a few more donations of cool art and items, so I will upload them as I receive them and give them a one month auction as well. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions or concerns about this auction, our status as a nonprofit, information about our scholarship and grant programs or anything else, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you for helping me make a difference in the world!
