Annual Kids First Fund Auction 2018 — Now Co-Sponsored by BoardingArea and InsideFlyer

You can bid on a global selection of travel items during the 14th annual Kids First Auction — which is sponsored this year by both BoardingArea and InsideFlyer — and it is expected to include airline tickets, hotel stays, car rentals and feature signature items. The first auction will begin on Sunday, May 13, 2018; and this is the first of three rounds of auctions lasting ten days each. The third and final auction is expected to conclude on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 — so be sure to click here for access to both auction sites.

Returning for 2018 is the eBay auction Internet web site of Kids First Fund, offering a traditional array of airline tickets, hotel stays, car rental vouchers, and upgrades.

If you are looking to add some miles or points to your frequent travel loyalty program accounts, you can bid on auctions officially authorized by such travel companies as Delta SkyMiles, Choice Privileges, Hilton Honors, United Airlines MileagePlus, and IHG Rewards Club.

Kids First Fund

The Kids First Fund is a charity based in the United States which helps abused children in resource-poor areas of the world by developing programs which provide professional education to identify and treat abused children. For example, the fund has been responsible for creating a family shelter in Latvia which cares for abused women and their children. Every penny donated during this auction and to the Kids First Fund will be spent on projects to benefit children. No funds are deducted for salaries or administrative expense, as all proceeds of the auctions will go to the Kids First Fund.

Summary

Thankfully this year, I was fortunate to bring this auction to your attention just before it started — unlike in 2014 and again in 2017 when I brought it to your attention just after the auctions started because that was when I first found out about them; and in years 2015 and 2016, I did not find out about the auction until it was almost over…

…but interestingly enough, Internet Brands was the sponsor of the Kids First Auction for those years through FlyerTalk — and since partnering with the Kids First Fund, FlyerTalk has raised greater than $50,000.00 for the charity. This is the first year that I know which both BoardingArea and InsideFlyer are sponsoring this worthwhile series of auctions.

Please consider participating in this auction. Who knows? Perhaps you will win one of the aforementioned travel prizes — and you will be helping a good cause in the process…
