There is nothing more gratifying than experiencing life’s luxuries and paying a fraction of the price, equally satisfying is making a contribution towards a worthy cause. Well you can do both thanks to Givergy Events, an award –winning company that utilises a range of technology platforms to assist charities with fund raising. Givergy have joined forces with the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation (nsif) for an online silent auction from November 20th – December 6th. The auction will be hosted by Givergy and all funds raised will contribute directly towards research into curing spinal paralysis.
Auction lots include some of the biggest names in luxury hotels: the Mandarin Oriental in New York, Washington, Boston, Macau and Guangzhou, the Landmark Hotel in Hong Kong, and both the Connaught and The Goring in London. Fine dining experiences are also on the list such as a chance to throw a party for 100 at Langan’s Brasserie, along with a day and evening at Anton Mosimann’s Private Dining Club.
Givergy is considered the leader in interactive silent auction, pledging and mobile technology thanks to such platforms as Givergy Access which allows users to take part in flexible auctions and raffles or purchase ‘buy it now’ items. Participants will have access to exclusive, high-profile, money-can’t-buy items and experiences that are not available anywhere else. This cutting-edge platform will enable nsif to reach a wider audience, maximise global awareness and raise more for research into curing spinal injury.
nsif was founded by David Nicholls after his son Daniel was paralysed at the age of 18 after an accident.
The charity supports research led by Professor Geoffrey Raisman, a pioneering neuroscientist based at the UCL Institute of Neurology. It also funds a project led by Dr. Pawel Tabakow, a leading surgeon at Wrocław Medical University. Dr. Tabakow’s work aims to translate Professor Raisman’s research into a clinical approach to treating spinal cord injury.
Speaking of nsifs’ first online auction, David said:
“We are delighted to partner with Givergy, whose cutting-edge technology will offer a seamless experience to all our patrons and supporters. It is also an exciting time for nsif as we enter our next phase of funding spinal research and supporting scientific development. We look forward to this collaborative effort and the continued generosity of our supporters, which will bring us one step closer to curing spinal injury.”
