Global Americans' Anniversary Auction
In celebration of Global Americans' anniversary, we invite you to participate in our silent auction. All attendees of our December 3rd fundraiser event will have the opportunity to place bids leading up to—and during—the event. Bidders will receive updates prior to the auction if they hold the highest bid or if they previously held the highest bid and were outbid by another bidder. We will announce the winners of each item during our virtual celebration.
Thank you for supporting Global Americans--your generous contributions allow us to continue doing our work. A portion of all proceeds will also go to EcoCiencia, a charity working to protect Indigenous communities in the Ecuadorean Amazon. A description of each of the three auction items can be found below. We invite you to place a bid before the event by scrolling to the item - or items - that most draws your attention and typing the amount (in $USD) that you would like to bid. If you have any questions about the auction items or our event, please email Nicole Harrison at
