Each year DDB Canada holds an annual employee-led art crawl and auction featuring unique auction items and services conceptualized, personalized and realized by agency employees as well as its partners and suppliers, and this year did not disappoint. Some of the more coveted creative items this year at ShareDDB included: personal guitar lessons, home décor advice from celebrity designer Lisa Canning, cottage get-aways, watercolour paintings, Michael Martchenko prints, team building pizza workshops, handmade lunches for a week, an adult piñata stuffed with toys and treats.

Born nine years ago at DDB Canada’s Vancouver office, ShareDDB became a national endeavour in 2011 with both the Edmonton and Toronto offices participating. To date, ShareDDB has raised over $207,000 for local charities across Canada.
