Time Auction is a tech-enabled charity that advocates volunteerism, ,which encourages volunteering with inspiring experiences, while connecting skilled-volunteers with NGOs. Started as a side project in 2014, Time Auction quickly gained traction among generous donors and young adults. Time Auction became a registered charity in Hong Kong in early 2017 with Fion dedicating herself full-time to the charity and is now leading the international expansion, operations, and continuing the mission to make volunteering a fulfilling and vital part of people’s lives. Over 74,000 volunteer hours have been contributed in 9 cities to date.
