Lauritz.com and charity
Lauritz.com is strongly involved in charity. We cooperate, for example, with Doctors Without Borders, AIDS Fondet (The AIDS Fund), Red Cross, the Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society, Unicef, the Danish Refugee Council, DanChurchAid, Amnesty International, WHO and many others.
We organise auctions for art, design or events, and the items are donated by well-known public figures. A charity auction is typically initiated by the charity organisation. The organisation and Lauritz.com contact artists and producers for donations. An artist may sometimes donate an existing work or sometimes create a work dedicated to the occasion's theme. A sport star may donate an item of known memorabilia. Alternatively, an event can be auctioned, such as dinner cooked by a star chef, a concert with a famous musician or a seminar with a current minister. Lauritz.com always donates both the buyer's premium and the seller's commission. Every year, over EUR 270,000 is collected for charity and the last 4 years, Lauritz.com has collected over EUR 1.3 million, of which over EUR 320,000 were commissions.
