Global Traveler’s Silent Auction 2016

Apr 1, 2016
2016

Each year, Global Traveler teams with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in an effort to accomplish extraordinary things. It may sound like a lofty enterprise, but together with LLS, we can all help make a difference.

Did you know there are approximately 1.2 million people living in the United States right now who either have or are in remission from leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma? Every day, 155 of them will die. Every three minutes, another unsuspecting individual will be diagnosed. Blood cancers such as these are not picky, either. They go after children, men and women of all races and lifestyles.

However, thanks to many years of research conducted by LLS, survival rates have quadrupled over the last 50 years. LLS made it possible for so many of those diagnosed to go on to live healthy, fulfilling lives, and LLS is a continual source of hope for those who are still struggling.

In 2016, Global Traveler is acting as LLS’s Diamond Honoree, a privilege awarded to those who continually and wholeheartedly support the LLS mission. In the past, with the help of our corporate partners and so many readers, we’ve been able to raise almost $1 million to help LLS. This year, we’re raising the bar even higher.

On the next few pages, you’ll find a wide selection of items available in our annual online charity auction, which is live March 1 through May 1. Each item is perfect for the frequently traveling members of the GT audience. You’ll find business-class airline tickets, stays at some of the most luxurious properties in the world and more. The best part? The entirety of the auction proceeds go straight to LLS to fund life-saving research.

We invite you, our readers, to join us in our mission to accomplish great things for the individuals who look to LLS for help and hope every day. Log on to our website for complete bidding instructions and rules, as well as to place your bid. Visit the website daily as new items will be added frequently.
