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!

Experience
Grab lunch with Stephen, then tour Thalmic Labs and play with the Myo

Ever wondered how Stephen got the idea to remotely control things with his arm? Or how he decided to not take a job upon graduation and start his own business? Feel free to ask him these questions and more at this group lunch session with him and up to two other bidders. Afterwards, you will get to tour Thalmic's offices and play with the Myo yourself!
