Kids First Fund Auction 2019: Bid on Great Travel Items Now

You can bid on a global selection of travel items during the 15th annual Kids First Auction — which is sponsored once again this year by both BoardingArea and InsideFlyer — and it includes airline tickets, hotel stays, car rentals, upgrades, and feature signature items. The first auction began on Sunday, May 5, 2019; and this is the first of three rounds of auctions lasting ten days each.

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 Choice Privileges, IHG Rewards Club, Priority Pass, Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards, and United Airlines MileagePlus.

The process is comprised of six easy steps:

  1. Register to bid — if you have not done so already
  2. Log in with your username and password
  3. Find some awesome travel items to bid on
  4. If you are outbid — bid again, as notices will be sent out via e-mail messages
  5. Pay for the item or items which you have won
  6. Go on an amazing trip and brag unashamedly to your friends

Kids First Fund

The Kids First Fund is an organization 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 which is donated during this auction and to The Kids First Fund will be spent on projects to benefit children. No funds are ever deducted for salaries, administrative expenses or overhead expenses, as all proceeds of the auctions will go to The Kids First Fund, which is comprised solely of volunteers.


Tens of thousands of dollars have been raised for The Kids First Fund through this auction over the years; and I am proud to have covered it every year in recent years here at The Gate. This is the second year in 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 items — and you will be helping a good cause in the process…

    thanks for this great info. a question you may or may not be able to answer…

    inside flyer’s homepage lists very old “news” articles, specifically the ones that you can scroll though the headlines on horizontally below the initial graphics on the homepage. are they still updating?

      I apologize for not responding sooner, r m h; but I passed your question on to none other than Randy Petersen himself — and he responded that a new person has recently been hired for the purpose of ensuring that InsideFlyer for the United States is updated with new content on a regular basis. In fact, new content has already been added since you asked your question.

      For the record, the other editions of InsideFlyer outside of the United States have been thriving.

      I hope that I answered your question, r m h. If not, please let me know…

        thanks brian!

        but the horizontally oriented links are still old…….bordering on ancient history!

        regardless, i appreciate your follow-up!

            I have been seeing updates to InsideFlyer since I responded, r m h.

            If you have any comments or other questions, I can always forward them to Randy Petersen for you…

            …and sadly, I am not always notified of comments via e-mail message. The function seems to work randomly at best; so I usually have to monitor the comments manually — and some do slip through the cracks, unfortunately preventing me from responding in time or at all…
