EACH YEAR, Global Traveler hosts an online travel auction to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, joining in the fight of a lifetime. If we stand united with LLS, we can aid in the organization’s mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.

Approximately 1.2 million people living in the United States either have or are in remission from leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. You might ask yourself, “What can I do to help?” One way is to bid in our auction, fulfilling your travel dreams while helping ensure someone has the chance to live to fulfill their own dreams. The following selection of items is available at our online auction, live March 1 through May 1. Bid on business-class airline tickets, luxury travel items and stays at some of the world’s finest hotels, generously donated by our corporate partners. All of the auction proceeds go straight to LLS to help fund its life-saving research and patient services.

As a result of LLS-conducted and -funded research and other initiatives, survival rates quadrupled over the last 50 years. LLS made it possible for so many people diagnosed to continue living full, healthy lives, and LLS provides hope for those still fighting.

Thanks to your generous participation in past auctions, we’ve raised more than $1 million on behalf of LLS. Every year we aim to raise the bar higher. Join us in reaching our goal in 2017 by bidding often on the items listed on the following pages. An amazing travel experience is within reach, and with it comes another step in the fight to eradicate cancer.

Log on to our website via your smartphone for complete instructions and to start bidding. Visit the website regularly, as new items will be added.
