Kids Who Are in Care Incorporated are holding an online auction to raise money for the Hear Our Heart Ear Bus Project, which performs ear tests in school and childcare services throughout the region.
"We know six kids who have had grommets put into their ears. Seeing what they go through is amazing," auction organiser Kath Abel said.
This auction will be the last fundraiser for Kids Who Are in Care before they close, so Ms Abel is selling off all of the item's previously been donated to the organisation.
"It's a good bye and thank you to everyone who has supported us," Ms Abel said.
In addition to the Kids Who Are in Care items, donations from individuals and businesses raised the number of lots to 104.
Just hours after the online auction officially began, the fundraising had already reached $700.
"Even to get to $700 is amazing. We're so over the moon with what we've done, but we couldn't have done it without the community."
In their two years of fundraising, Ms Abel said Kids Who Are in Care has raised around $24 000 for organisations in need.
The auction started on Friday and closes Monday, October 6 at 12pm. Bids can be made on the Kids Who Are in Care Facebook page and all items must be picked up no later than 5pm Wednesday.
