Give it away to get out the vote
Indivisible Vashon and Vashon Maury Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) are partnering to raise $20,000 for groups fighting voter suppression, and currently soliciting both donations and buyers to help them in the cause.
The auction will open for bids on Aug. 19 and close on September 2. So far, it includes art, quilts, acupuncture, gardening, chainsawing, and massage.
“Each of us has something to offer,” said organizer Suzanne Greenberg. “Think of Vashon’s Labor of Love auction, where people donated all kinds of fun experiences: cooking, cleaning someone’s house, a guided kayak paddle — we all have skills and talents that someone else would appreciate.”
Greenberg said the group would accept any item worth $20 or more.
“With this auction, we are excited to offer, with your help, financial assistance from all of us here on Vashon to folks with boots on the ground doing the hard work of protecting the right to vote,” she said.
