We at the Charter Foundation are happy to announce that our ✨Waldorf Wonder Auction is LIVE NOW!✨
To SHOP, visit www.32auctions.com/WaldorfWonderAuction through 9pm on December 22, WITH SPECIAL NEW ITEMS LISTED EVERY WEEK!
What’s on offer? Books, craft kits, art supplies, toys for imaginative play, healing treatments, tattoos, jewelry, snowy get-aways, handcrafted clothing, music classes, wine, local gift certificates for dining, coffee, and groceries from our supportive local partners…there’s bound to be something for everyone, and every single bid supports our school.
Not interested in shopping but still want to help? Our auction site is hosting a “Fund-a-Play Structure” campaign where anyone can donate any amount to help our younger grades Play Structure come closer to fruition on our new campus. Having arrived at our long-term home just a short year and a half before the pandemic, the work to “feather our nest” is just beginning and will need additional support into the foreseeable future.
What’s in it for you? When things in the world pull us into separate directions, there is a distinct power in remembering our shared values around Waldorf education. Sebastopol Charter School offers public school children a tuition-free place to thrive and strive and become all they were meant to be as creative beings in this world. In this light and at this important time, our talented local community has created an online auction to highlight and support the beautiful, diverse bouquet of visual, audial, healing, and practical artistry that exists among us all.
💓Shop with your heart this holiday season, and expand your impact by sharing this opportunity widely with friends and family.💓
Why not paint your “Black Friday” in softer colors, creating the world you want, where being an engaged and creative human is celebrated, where local, values-based businesses thrive, and schools have all they need to educate and support their students and teachers?
🕯Corporate online shopping does not hold a beeswax candle to our marketplace of treasures. WE are the ones we’ve been waiting for, so visit our online auction and celebrate the Waldorf Wonder that sustains us all!💫
⏳IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO DONATE A SPECIAL ITEM TO BE INCLUDED IN OUR AUCTION! Please use our digital form here to submit a donation that represents your skill or bounty. Our weekly unveiling of new batches of items allows for continuous submissions through December 12, so consider making an “in kind” offering of your particular talent in support of our school!
HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR DONATION
Auction donations are still being accepted now through December 12. It’s easy to submit your donations:
- Complete a Donation Form Here. If your donated item is digital and complete with your form, then you’re all done!
- Drop-off your LABELED, tangible items in our campus office on weekdays during open office hours, 9am-1pm, or by special drop off or pick up arrangements with Charter Foundation staff, Jill@theCharterFoundation.org,
- Make a cash donation (suggested amount of $50 or more), in lieu of a donated item or service. These donations will be used to purchase goods and services from our school families’ businesses or others who have given extensively in support of our school and that offer items that our parent body is likely to bid on. We see this as a chance to give back and keep LOCAL strong. Donate here:
Without being able to gather in person, this fundraiser creates a sweet opportunity to give something that feels like a natural expression of your talent or resources…ideally the easiest and most fun thing for you to share that you think will be well-received (and bid upon) by your peers and extended families. The result of each of us doing this? We get to see each others’ rich offerings, be reminded of each other’s awesomeness, and do/offer some shopping for a cause close to all of our hearts…Sebastopol Charter School.
