Music for Liberia Summer Auction

Proceeds from Music for Liberia's Summer Auction will support the Mother Blessing's Home's college graduates  as they set up their own small businesses in Mount Barclay, Liberia.  By supporting the Home's resettlement program, you can help these inspiring young people invest in themselves and their community.

About Mother Blessing's Home: Mother Blessing's Home, in Mount Barclay, Liberia, was founded in 1996 and currently houses and educates about 80 children and young adults. They receive little government funding, and the recent Ebola outbreak severely stretched their already small budget. 

About Music for Liberia:  Music for Liberia raises money for children and education in Liberia through music-based fundraising. Our donations have enabled our charity partners and beneficiaries to fund crucial work in Liberia, including providing scholarships, supporting rural schools, and awarding relief grants during the Covid-19 pandemic.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
