100% of proceeds from the winning bid will benefit GLIDE, one of the leading social service institutions working to alleviate human suffering and poverty in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I’ve seen it with my own eyes.”

Each year, GLIDE helps thousands of men, women, and children confront and overcome the effects of human suffering, poverty and homelessness through comprehensive services that emphasize unconditional love, healing, personal empowerment and self-affirmation. GLIDE provides these comprehensive services to more than 2,500 individuals every day and feeds nearly a million meals a year.
Founded 50 years ago by Rev. Cecil Williams and Janice Mirikitani, GLIDE has been a spiritual home for all people and has brought social justice, love, courage and leadership to the community. By connecting the threads of individual lives, Janice and Cecil have created a tapestry that weaves us all together. Addressing hunger, poverty, homelessness, racism, and homophobia, GLIDE has transformed San Francisco into a place where acceptance, justice and meaningful change are endlessly possible. With Cecil and Janice in the roles of Co-Founders, GLIDE is directed by Kristen G. Yamamoto and Rita Shimmin, the Co-Executive Directors, who bring a wealth of compassion and experience to the task of continuing GLIDE’s impact and success in the coming years. Today, GLIDE’s social movement continues to grow.
