How do you determine how to distribute the funds?

As a way of being pro-active in promoting the peace position of the Church of the Brethren, the organizers of the auction wanted to fund projects in areas prone to civil uprisings because of hunger.  As a result, the funding was directed to projects in Latin America countries.  Responding to later calls to address domestic projects, the committee created a formula which is designed to give a portion of the money to Roanoke Area Ministries, the Heavenly Manna food bank, and Heifer International programs in the United States.
