Once-in-a-lifetime gifts available at charity auctions

Russell SimmonsWant to shop without the guilt? Try a charity auction. Two favorites of Indulge are BiddingForGood.com and CharityBuzz.com. These are great sites where you can bid on amazing packages with celebrities, unique travel experiences, high-end goods and so much more. Here are some of the fabulous auctions they are offering right now:

Charity Buzz is currently offering an auction for a 90-minute yoga session with Russell Simmons (right) in NYC or the Hamptons. Or, if bidding is not enough competition for you, then you may want to checkout the auction they have listed for 2 VIP Tickets to the Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas with accommodations at Planet Hollywood.

Are you trying to think of a great gift for a fashion-lover? Charity Buzz has an auction that includes 2 tickets to the Fall 2009 Badgley Mischka fashion show in NYC, a dress and a blowout at Salon AKS. Or if you like to get pampered Hollywood-style, Charity Buzz has an auction for a facial with celebrity Esthetician Renee Rouleau, who has worked on Ali Landry and Cheryl Ladd and more. That package comes with $200 in beauty products.

Bidding For Good has hundreds of auctions for spa-lovers (like us) including facials, massages, waxings, consultations, manicures/pedicures and more. These are all donated with proceeds going to a cause listed in the auction. Some of these end up being really good deals and there are options across the U.S. It makes a great gift or just a treat for yourself.

Both Bidding For Good and Charity Buzz also offer pages and pages of other great trips, experiences, memorabilia and more. Some of these include tickets to the Inauguration, tickets to the Emmys, an autographed Van Morrison Guitar or the chance to meet Whoopi Goldberg, David Beckham (for a private soccer lesson) or Howard Stern (for a tour of his studio).

As the holidays approach, these auctions are just going to keep getting better, so this is a great time to get someone a once-in-a-lifetime gift for a good cause!

“Once-in-a-lifetime gifts available at charity auctions”

  1. Anonymous Online Charity Says:

    2011 presents many challenges for nonprofits. Today, nonprofits face a reduction in grants; an economy that is stretching their nonprofit dollars to the max; an increase in demand for their services; all while trying to reach new donors in a very competitive industry. Nonprofits are trying very hard to "get the word out about what they do for others", while growing their organization for long-term success.

    At Connect To Charity, our objective is to help nonprofits overcome these challenges.
