Effort is important... Knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference. We give children hope that the sun will rise tomorrow & no one can take their birthday away.
NW Giving Hope is a non-profit foundation founded to generate, by way of live auctions, revenue to support the existing efforts of communities healing from the impact of commercial sexual exploitation of our youth. We are driven to exceed the expectations of every disadvantaged child we seek to serve in. As part of our efforts to heal these youth and our community we additionally provide awareness to those unaware of this fast growing problem where the average age of entry is 14 & the youngest on record in Clackamas county is 8. We do this by boldly talking about it with our audiences before each sale. Our approach is forward thinking, determined to ambitiously give hope to a hopeless child through the sale of collectibles oddities and antiques at live auction. ...but why? Why would we do that??….well, because it matters...because children matter....because if given a whisper of a chance to make a child deliriously happy even if just for a moment in time, we just might alter the path into their particular darkness forever....and how cool is that!!
