From Side Hustle to a Charity in 7 Cities, Here’s Our Story.

So with a full-time job, we worked on this at lunch, on the weekends, and also secretly at work when our boss isn’t looking.

Fast forward to today, we now host 1–2 events every week in Hong Kong, and have expanded to 6 other cities — Singapore, Melbourne, Los Angeles, Sydney, and San Francisco, with Kuala Lumpur coming up soon.

If you’ve volunteered before, you know it doesn’t stop there. It teaches you something.

Volunteering is real-world education. Once you have the awareness, it stays with you and changes how you operate and see the world.

To date, our community has volunteered over 50,000 hours.

So we’re really happy that you’re here today, because the fact that Time Auction exists and we were able to have the growth that we’ve had, show that there are a lot of kind, driven and generous people in the world.
