Instagram Auction to Support Abortion Access

By Christy Knell
November 01, 2022

UPDATE: We raised $3,595 to support reproductive rights!!! Thank you to all who participated, and please continue to support small businesses like these who pour their heart into their work.

As a reminder of how important next week’s election is (Tuesday, November 8!), we’re harnessing the power of the HudCo community to help raise more money and awareness for the New York Abortion Access Fund, which supports anyone living in or traveling to New York who needs an abortion and can’t afford it. Our friends at the Rivertowns for Reproductive Rights recently raised over $25k for this same organization, and we want to continue that momentum!

We have some highly desirable auction items from some highly generous local (and many women-owned) businesses available for you to bid on frequently and highly!

Auction items will be posted on our Instagram feed beginning Monday, 10/31, with multiple items posted each day until Sunday, 11/6. 

How do you bid? 

Write your maximum offer in a new comment (do not reply to another bid or comment, it may get missed!). You MUST submit your bid via a comment on the item post only. We will not accept requests via DM or email. 

How do you win?

Minimum bid increment will be listed in each post. Bidding closes Sunday, November 6, 2022, at 9:00 PM EST. 

The winning bid total is inclusive of shipping to the US only (local pickups at HudCo are encouraged!). At the close of the auction, we will DM all highest bidders with instructions on next steps. The winner will have 48 hours to show proof of donation. Failure of full donation results in the watch going to the next highest bidder. Winner will coordinate delivery directly with auction item owner.

Make sure to follow our Instagram feed and shop like you mean it—all in support of providing access to potentially life-saving abortions to all those who need them.
