Fw: Silent Auction to benefit immigrants and refugees - now!

Carol Clarke

Where is God in this picture? God is all over the place. God is up there, down here, inside my skin and out. God is the web, the energy, the space, the light ...revealed in that singular, vast net of relationship that animates everything that is. . . .
  Barbara Brown Taylor

The only way out and through—for either side of any dualism ...—is a kind of universal forgiveness of Reality for being what it is; it thus becomes the bonding glue of grace which heals all the separations ...  Richard Rohr

A silent auction to benefit immigrants and refugees

November 30-December 5

Here is your opportunity to support our inspiring school that welcomes everyone, turns no one away, and is a place of refuge.
Bid today in our silent auction! Support a great cause AND do some gift shopping for the holidays!

You're invited! Join us for our "live" closing event (via Zoom) on Saturday, Dec. 5th @ 7:30PM! We'll be auctioning 3 exclusive items! 

To view the auction, visit: 32auctions.com/opendoorsenglish2020

Items up for auction include:
Unique offerings from ODE students
Local Art
Specialty Services
...and so much more!
The proceeds of this auction will directly supplement student tuition costs. Our students pay on a self-selected sliding scale anywhere from $0-$150 for four weeks of class. Due to COVID and the increased financial strain many of our students are experiencing, tuition payments are averaging $30 per student per month--a significant drop. More than ever before, the immigrants and refugees in our classes need your support to continue accessing Open Doors English's vital services!

Open Doors English already operates on a shoestring, and our teachers make half the prevailing wage for professional ESL teachers. Your bids matter! As you peruse our fabulous array of auction offerings, consider the impact of your bids in the knowledge that your generosity is deeply appreciated!
In this time of denigrating people from other countries, welcoming spaces like Open Doors English are especially important.
