7 Ways to Say “Thanks Dad” By Bidding for Good
Chances are, you’ve given your old man enough neckties to last a lifetime (or four). So what do you get for the first man in your life? From garage-band dad to NASCAR dad, Charitybuzz can help you give him that elusive gift he didn’t even know he wanted—and give him the bonus gift of supporting a great cause in his name at the same time.
Gifts for the Sporty Dad
Dads and sports are synonymous. It was his strong arms that held you for your first time in the pool, and you still have a standing date on Sunday afternoons to cheer on your favorite team from the couch. Or maybe it was simply that memorable moment he let go of the bike seat and cheered as you wobbled down the driveway under your own steam.
Charitybuzz always features great sports packages, from Super Bowl tickets or a trip to the Olympics, to pitching lessons, autographed jerseys, and more.
Gifts for the Musical Dad
Remember cringing in embarrassment when you could hear Dad sing in the shower? You can’t blame a guy for trying…
Whether it’s a record deal or recording session, a Sheryl Crow-signed guitar, U2 concert tickets, or Alice Cooper backstage passes, Charitybuzz has amazing experiences and memorabilia for every musical taste.
Gifts for the Comedian Dad
Speaking of embarrassing, how about Dad’s lame jokes? You’ve groaned and tried to hide from the shame, but all dads are the same. And if your dad is the funniest guy he knows, we’ve got you covered.
From Colbert, Corden, and Comedy Central to Seinfeld, Sykes, and SNL, Charitybuzz will put a smile on his face and support a great cause.
Gifts for the Foodie Dad
Sweating over the grill, whipping up a four-course wonder, or just trying to boil water… dads are always confident in the kitchen. Whether yours is a foodie or a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, Charitybuzz has experiences that will please his palate and show him he’s the Top Chef in your life — for good.
Past auction lots include a highly-coveted table at exclusive restaurants like Rao in NYC, a diner on Top Chef, private dinner for 8 at the Ambassador of Iceland’s residence in DC, meet-and-greet with celebrity chef Jacques Pepin, and more.
Gifts for the Traveling Dad
Using planes, trains, and automobiles (and the occasional Airstream), Dad was great at showing you the world (and the occasional KOA Kampground).
Whether you want to join him on an African safari or give him the perfect getaway on a private island, Charitybuzz offers up charity auctions for some much needed R&R.
Gifts for the Car-Loving Dad
At the very least, your dad deserves something special after he took his life into his hands teaching you how to drive.
With everything from NASCAR and Indy 500 VIP packages to a tour of Jay Leno’s garage or bidding on Matthew McConaughey’s red pickup from True Detective, Charitybuzz puts Dad in the driver’s seat. (No directions required.)
Gifts for Yourself
What if your #1 dad is YOU? On Charitybuzz we think it’s totally okay to treat yourself for surviving another year of parenting. Boost your business at lunch with Tim Cook, channel your inner theater geek with a walk-on role on Broadway, or get your kid out of the house with a once-in-a-lifetime internship. You’ll do something nice for yourself, and you’ll be supporting the work of amazing charities.
This Father’s Day — or any day — call your dad, tell him you love him, and check out our curated section on Charitybuzz.com for the perfect gift that shows how much — all for a worthy cause.
