In this video, International Rescue Committee President & CEO David Miliband explores highlights from Sotheby's MayDay: Covid-19 Charity Auction.
In this time of separation and social-distancing, Sotheby’s and Google are coming together virtually to raise much-needed funds for the International Rescue Committee’s (IRC) work to help mitigate and respond to the spread of COVID-19 in vulnerable communities. Together with leading figures from all walks of culture, business, politics and science, Sotheby’s and Google will launch an online auction of unique experiences which can be enjoyed virtually via Google Meet video calls during this period of social-distancing.
From intimate conversations and ‘virtual’ drinks to lessons and tutorials, all of the experiences will be offered without reserve. The winning bidders will have the option to share their experience with front-lines workers and others who have been directly impacted by COVID-19 and the social-distancing rules put in place.
