You can bid from anywhere, anytime before the close of the auction, from your own device! You can even bid if you can’t attend the Let’s Dance for the Heart of It! Event. You even get an update if you are outbid!

To have the GiveSmart system automatically bid for you to a designated amount, please select AUTO BID and enter a higher amount. The system will bid for you incrementally up until your designated amount only if someone bids against you.
