What is an online charity auction?

How do online charity auctions work?

All bidding for charity auction items takes place on the Charitybuzz online platform. Each auction item will include the current highest bid and the closing date for the auction. You can bid on as many items as you’d like, and you’ll be notified via email if you win. Winning bids are final and will be charged to the payment method on file.

How does your bid help the kids of St. Jude?

When you place a winning bid on an online  charity auction platform benefitting St. Jude, all proceeds, less fees, will help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live. 

When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered largely incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%, and we won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
