How Time Auction works

1. Earn Karma

Donating and logging past volunteer hours earns you Karma Points, which you can then use to bid on auctions. $1 donated earns 1 Karma Point and 1 hour volunteered earns 10 Karma Points.

2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

3. Meet

Time Auction is all about priceless experiences and rewards for the priceless philanthropy you do. Depending on the auction, meetings are done virtually or in person... or both!

Book Guide Editor (English)

To help write short descriptions for children's books based on our editing guidelines.

Project Details

What we need

  • Join 30 minute briefing call
  • Write book descriptions (less than 100 words each), for approx. 50 children's books (using specific websites for reference)
  • Check and edit existing content (name of author, illustrator, book title etc)


We are developing a user-friendly microsite to be launched in December, to recommend the best English (and Chinese) children's books with search functionality, to help parents and educators choose the best books for their children. We have a list of a few hundred titles that we plan to launch in 2021 which we need descriptions for.

What we have

We have the list of book titles and a google spread sheet with editing and description guidelines. Our staff will provide a briefing and share many examples that the volunteer can use as reference.

Why this is important

As the leading advocate for family literacy and reading aloud in Hong Kong, Bring Me A Book is often asked by parents, “What are the best books to read to my children? Our Chinese and English bookguides help parents and teachers select the best books for their children – ones that will pique a child’s interest and nurture a life-long love of reading.
