Catawiki community comes together for #StandWithUkraine Charity Auctions 14-21 March 2022


It sincerely pains us to see the devastating situation in Ukraine. Catawiki stands firmly by the people of Ukraine and are committed to helping and supporting those impacted however we can. 


As a company, we are offering financial, immigration and relocation support to our Ukrainian employees.


In addition, we have continued to seek meaningful ways to respond and have been overwhelmed by the outreach of our international community of sellers and buyers. Together, we will unite and leverage the potential of our platform to raise funds and awareness to help the unfortunate victims of this conflict.


#StandWithUkraine Charity Auctions


From 14 to 21 March 2022, we will host multiple #StandWithUkraine Charity Auctions across all Catawiki categories. Every special object featured in these auctions will be donated by our Seller Community. In addition, Catawiki will donate all commissions associated with these auctions and double the total commission amount.


To support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries, we will donate all proceeds to UNICEF, which is at the forefront of the response supporting children and their families affected by the conflict with essential, life saving, services.
