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!

Meet an Award-Winning Foreign Affairs Reporter

This auction has ended.
Experience
Have coffee with Olivia and chat with about her experiences as a foreign correspondent

Olivia has been through quite a lot. She's been shot at, barely escaped being kidnapped, and all the while delivering amazing coverage - including on US presidential elections, on the Chechen insurgency, and on various Mideast hotspots. Feel free to ask her about current events in Ukraine, her work on the conflict in Israel and Palestine, or how she continues to do this day in and day out. This will be a one-hour group coffee session with Olivia and up to three other bidders.

Olivia Ward writes for the Toronto Star and has reported from the UN, Moscow, London, South Asia, and the Middle East for more than 16 years

Olivia Ward is a foreign affairs reporter for The Toronto Star who has written on international affairs for over 16 years, beginning as the Star’s UN correspondent and reporting from countries around the globe. Olivia has led the Moscow and London bureaus for the Star and has reported from the former Soviet Union, South Asia, and the Middle East, and on conflict zones including Chechnya, Tajikistan, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, Kosovo, Serbia, Iraq, and Israel and Palestine.

Olivia's incredibly influential work has also been the subject of a number of films. She collaborated on films with Shelley Saywell, including the Oscar-listed documentary "A Child’s Century of War", which was inspired by Olivia's reports from Chechnya. The Emmy-award-winning "The Selling of Innocents,” by director Simcha Jacobovici was based on her reports on the trafficking of women in India. Her last film project with Shelley Saywell, "Devil’s Bargain", focuses on the catastrophic consequences of the international small arms trade.
