The 15th Annual Kids First Fund Travel Auction

The bidding begins May 5, 2019 with 3 separate 10-day auctions comprised of airline tickets, hotel stays, car rentals and feature signature items. We are once again running an exclusive auction for frequent flier miles and guest reward points, and Gold tier benefits for top donors.

The auction benefits the Kids First Fund which is a US-based charity that helps abused children in resource-poor areas of the world. It has been granted special consultative status with the United Nations. Every penny donated to the Fund is spent on projects to benefit children –nothing is deducted for salaries or administrative expense.

Thanks to the Frequent Flyer Network (FFN) and its BoardingArea.com and InsideFlyer.com websites for supporting the 2019 Kids First Auction. BoardingArea.com thrives as the online incarnation of influential social media for frequent flyers. Proven the voice of road warriors that matter – FFN has become the go-to resource for the those that matter in an ever-changing world of travel. InsideFlyer.com is a consumer portal that gives users access to the most definitive and unique content by allowing them to deep dive into their passion of miles, points and travel. It’s also known as “the friendly place” for the frequent flyer.

The first auction runs May 5 to May 15

  1. 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?

    thanks!

  2. I honestly can’t answer that question. Personally I always stuck with FlyerTalk for community news since it has a much a larger membership base.
