BidKind’s New Charitable Gift Ideas For Grads

Friday, May 22, 2015

Graduation season is upon us, and for those who are celebrating the milestone academic achievements of loved ones, it’s time for some major gift-giving. While there are plenty of conventional (and predictable) gifts like jewelry and watches, you may find gratification in another option that is just as exciting to give as it would be to get. It’s called BidKind, a new charity online auction platform that raises funds for non-profit organizations by offering access to celebrities and influencers through unique curated experiences. Overall, it’s a thoughtful and generous gift idea, plus you can easily have your good deed of the day checked off the to-do list—Caps off to that!

Interested? You can find a few of our favorite charity auctions below that are currently offered on BidKind:

Todd English

For The Foodie

This auction benefits Men With Heart, and offers the chance to meet celebrity chef, Todd English. The lucky individual would have the chance to shop with him at the market for fresh ingredients, then learn the trade of cooking with a private lesson. Can you say bon appétit?

For The Adventure Seeker

To benefit amfAR, this auction calls for the opportunity of a lifetime: racing cars with actress Michelle Rodriguez in a Las Vegas desert. Known for work in films such as Furious 7, the star will put her motor skills to the test for a fun adventure ahead.

For The Golf Enthusiast

This opportunity offers the chance to meet golf legend Greg Norman and Sir Richard Branson. The experience will include playing in the 2015 Necker Open Pro-Am at the world famous Sea Island Golf Club, followed by a visit to Necker Island. Oh, and there’s a private jet ride in between. This auction benefits the National Tennis Foundation.

Previous auctions have benefitted charity organizations such as the Naked Heart Foundation, the Smile Foundation, and ADCAM. Stay up to date on the latest auctions by visiting and following BidKind on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
