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!

YAMA Foundation has built a strong base among English-speaking communities with disabilities and special needs. As we look to expand our programmes in the coming year, we sincerely desire to reach deeper into the local Chinese-speaking communities most in-need. We seek help in translating/updating our existing web content to include Chinese language, as well as putting out regular bilingual communications to our growing subscriber base.

What we have

English-language content (website, direct mail newsletters, activity reports, event marketing collaterals); Chinese-language glossary of preferred terms;Collaborative support from Executive Team to discuss/clarify ideas and communication concepts

Why this is important

YAMA Foundation was created to enable Hong Kong’s most vulnerable to fully participate in all aspects of life and society. We have witnessed how social exclusion, discrimination, and entrenched inequalities can impact people with disabilities and special needs, and the hardships that many families endure to “just get by”.Since our inception in 2016, YAMA has been an English-dominant organization. As our city continues to struggle through these most challenging and uncertain times, the need to broaden our reach and expand services in support of our city’s most marginalised and excluded communities has never been greater.
