The Auction is Zip Zap’s flagship fundraising event hosted annually. Last year we raised in ZAR1,127,500 in one magnificent afternoon. The occasion is also so much more than fundraising. It’s an intimate experience where loyal Zip Zap activists gather and through their collective philanthropic action, create change and a new world of opportunities for 2000 of Zip Zap’s beneficiaries.
With the unforeseen disruption of the Covid 19 pandemic everything changed. All our live shows and beneficiary programmes were suspended for 7 months, negatively impacting on both our work and our income streams. The circumstances have been a catalyst for ‘out of the box’ thinking prompting up to launch an online component to our Auction for the first time ever. This also means we can extend this opportunity to support Zip Zap to a broader audience anywhere in the world.
