How Time Auction works

1. Earn Karma

Donating and logging past volunteer hours earns you Karma Points, which you can then use to bid on auctions. $1 donated earns 1 Karma Point and 1 hour volunteered earns 10 Karma Points.

2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

3. Meet

Time Auction is all about priceless experiences and rewards for the priceless philanthropy you do. Depending on the auction, meetings are done virtually or in person... or both!

Frank O'Dea went from being homeless to being the Founder of Second Cup. Ask him about his life and become inspired to transform your own.

Frank O'Dea's story of triumph over adversity in business and in his personal life inspires audiences around the world. Against all odds, O'Dea went from being a homeless panhandler to a successful entrepreneur and a founder of The Second Cup chain of coffee stores. From there, he went on further to launch a number of other innovative and successful businesses and international not-for-profit organizations. O'Dea's powerful message inspires audiences to hope for a better future and learn from his example.

As a young man, O'Dea was a homeless person who lived on the streets. At the age of 23, he began fighting back and overcoming the barriers that had been closed to him. Within a few years, he co-founded The Second Cup, and later went on to co-found Proshred Security and Samaritan Air Ambulance Services.

In the not-for-profit arena, O'Dea was also successful as the co-founder of Street Kids International, an organization developed to help homeless children in third world countries, and the Canadian Landmine Foundation, an organization that raises funds for the dismantling of minefields around the world. Together with the United Nations and world figures such as Colin Powell and Sir Paul McCartney, he lead an international fundraising event, "Night of A Thousand Dinners," that was taken up in 29 countries around the world.

Videos

In the first video, Frank O'Dea shares his story of hope, vision & action. He talks about how he went from being homeless, to the quarter he used to make the phone call that changed his life.

In the second video, Frank jokes about how he started his first coffee shop.

Among his many honours, O'Dea is an Officer of the Order of Canada and holds honorary degrees from two universities. His current ground-breaking projects include a youth employment program across Canada, and developing sustainable affordable housing in Brazil using Canadian technology.
