During the month of October, Coquitlam Centre is pleased to be partnering with I AM SOMEONE Ending Bullying Society for the 2nd annual “The Ultimate Online Auction” – all proceeds will go to support I AM SOMEONE.
I AM SOMEONE was formed by community leaders in Port Coquitlam following tragic suicides of a number of local youth.
Their goal: Raise awareness of the issues facing youth today, create the first in Canada professionally supported texting platform for youth and bring the business community together to help be champions. I AM SOMEONE has expanded across the Lower Mainland with the goal of going across Canada.
Youth today average 3400 texts/mth. Youth experiencing bullying may be scared and not know what to do. By sending an anonymous text message, they can access non-judgmental professional support and services in their community that can help. Just txt ‘211’ 2TALK to someone. By partnering with bc211 this service is now available from the Sunshine Coast to Hope, daily from 8am-11pm.
The Ultimate Online Auction is a way of publicly raising awareness and funds for this texting platform. Thousands of dollars in merchandise and unique items are up for grabs such as “The Ultimate Sports Event” or “The Ultimate Shopping Spree” or “The Ultimate Romance Package”. There are over 50 packages available to bid on that are sure to intrigue and entice variety of interests and budgets. These also make great Christmas Gifts! This is an opportunity to bid, win and give back to charity.
A sneak preview of the auction items will be available starting October 12 and the auction site will be LIVE October 16 at 9:00 am through November 2, 2015 until 10:00 pm PST.
A showcase will be set up in Coquitlam Centre October 17th, 18th, 24th and 25th for viewing of select auction items and volunteers will be available to answer any questions about I AM SOMEONE or the auction items.
Once the auction site closes, successful bidders will be able to pick up their auction items from Coquitlam Centre Guest Services desk starting November 6th through November 22nd, 2015.
