FREESKIER’s Auction For Action was a week-long silent auction to raise funds for front line medical workers and Coronavirus relief. We were blown away by the support we received when we announced the idea to the outdoor community. Before we get into the total funds raised, we want to take this opportunity to express our immense gratitude for every single person and brand that participated in the hugely successful event.
During these unprecedented moments of quarantine and uncertainty, it is vastly important for everyone to rally together—the Auction For Action showed just how much of an impact we can make. Keep scrolling to for complete results from the fundraiser.

FUNDRAISING TOTAL: $41,483.51
That’s right, with the help of all the aforementioned donors and generous bidders, we were able to raise more than $40,000 during this time of need. Without the support and contributions from ski and apparel brands, artists, photographers, ski resorts and hotels, the opportunity to give back to medical workers wouldn’t have been possible.
We thank the ski community and the FREESKIER audience for rallying around the Auction For Action and helping our collective to donate such a significant sum to GlobalGiving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund. Through GlobalGiving’s Disaster Recovery Network, all donations will be redistributed to locally vetted organizations in the hardest hit areas—groups on the ground that can make a bigger difference, faster.
The success of this online fundraiser blew our minds—and it’s all thanks to YOU. Click here if you’d like to learn more about the Auction For Action or click here to make an additional donation to GlobalGiving.
