With the recent reckoning the world is experiencing due to racial injustices, the Hearst Luxury and Design Group, through the broader #DesignUnites initiative, is supporting the Black design community by hosting a charitable auction to benefit the Black Artists + Designers Guild, a nonprofit organization that aims to amplify the art, projects, and voices of Black creators and makers.

You have the opportunity to give back while you bid to win a resort stay or gorgeous chair. The lot includes a mix of beautiful furniture, chic accessories, and one-of-a-kind experiences. All funds raised through the CharityBuzz auction will go toward the guild’s initiatives, including Mission Fund, education, and the BADG Concept House.
