“The meeting with Marissa Mayer was very inspiring. She is a very interesting, pleasant and charismatic person, who gives a lot of her time outside work to charitable causes – the concept of charity is extremely important in the USA. During the meeting we also spoke about the work of EPACS and she gave me a small insight into her private life.”
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!! My girls are some of the happiest girls in the country and you definitely went above and beyond to give them an amazing experience with One Direction."
"Rebecca hasn't stopped talking about the set visit to Law & Order: SVU to anyone who will listen! The cast and crew were so gracious and welcoming. We had a truly nice day on set. A memory for a lifetime!"
Debbie McLeod Sears, President Clinton, Jay Sears
After intense, exciting bidding, I won the privilege of spending the day with President Bill Clinton on the day he launched his new book, Back to Work. My husband and I went to three separate events in which the President discussed his book or gave an award. Secret service were everywhere as were the Presidents aids. We stood in back rooms and green rooms where accomplished folks had waited before us. Most importantly, we had conversations with one of the brightest, most intelligent men on the planet. We talked about recycling, the economy, poverty, women, education, politics and just about anything else you can imagine. Next time we see a motorcade going down the streets of NYC we will remember when we were riding in one of those black SUVs trailing the President!
Gaga and Friend
Gaga and Rachael
Thanks Charitybuzz and Lady Gaga for an experience we will never forget! Once we won the chance to go to Jingle Ball and meet Lady Gaga, we were contacted by Cheryl at Charitybuzz who helped to coordinate our trip. She provided a level of attention that made us feel like VIPs. As the date drew nearer, I wondered whether our expectations might be too high. I've never been so wrong about anything in my entire life. Lady Gaga and Jingle Ball and all the performers were amazing! As parents we want to be able to make our children's dreams come true and this trip could not have been more perfect. Thank you to Charitybuzz for making it possible. And thank you to Lady Gaga for giving us memories that will last a lifetime!
Meeting Jennifer Lopez was absolutely amazing! She is very down to earth and very kind. The whole experience was memorable. I was very happy to be the winner, and it was totally worth driving 6 hours from Montreal to New York City...The brunch with the team was excellent, and everybody was very professional. I really enjoyed my week-end in New York City, but most and foremost, having the opportunity of talking with Jennifer Lopez was more than fantastic -- a one-of-a-kind unforgettable experience!"
Sir Paul McCartney, Susan Livingston and Daughter
As a longtime Beatles fan, meeting Sir Paul McCartney backstage was one of the most exciting days of my life. Attending his concert at the Apollo Theater with my 8-year old daughter was an amazing experience thanks to Charitybuzz. And at the same time we were making a meaningful charitable contribution to a great cause, the GREEN Community Schools!
Jermiah Victor and Nathanael Victor-Smith with Michael Phelps
It may have taken over a year to coordinate our schedules, but flying to Baltimore and meeting Michael Phelps for a private lunch and swim lesson will forever be in my family’s memories. Both of my boys love fitness and have dreams of their own to be professional athletes. Michael and his sister Hilary were so kind as was their development director Gary. It was like hanging out with old friends. We discussed bringing his swim school to Florida using our boys’ charity Kidsserve.com, and Michael even played in the grass with the boys and blew dandelions with them. We don’t have dandelions in Florida so that was a special treat for the boys. Michael’s playful nature and down to earth manner was so pleasant to see in today’s world. His mom should be proud. I know I am to have met him. This is not my first Charitybuzz.com auction, and it will definitely not be my last. Love & Blessings,
Lisa Martin & Barbra Streisand
Being one of the winners of a set visit to MY MOTHER’S CURSE and meeting the one and only Barbra Streisand was a dream come true! My daughter and I spent an incredible nine hours on the set including two visits to Barbra’s trailer, a tour through the wardrobe trailer (including personal attention from Danny Glicker), great vantage points on set and even participation as extras within a scene. When there was an unexpected problem with the photographs taken on the LA set visit, we were given the chance to visit the set in Las Vegas where the final photographs were taken, and where I had another amazing nine hours on set! Ms. Streisand, her staff (Rupa, Monique and Renata) and the director, designers, artists and movie crew went out of their way to make this a very special and unforgettable event! This was my first experience with Charitybuzz, and it went extremely well. Everyone I interacted with was very responsive and helpful. A special thanks to Jenn for her care and attention! It was an honor and absolute pleasure meeting Barbra Streisand and watching her work – the experience gave us memories for a lifetime, and the photograph is something to treasure! It was also gratifying to join Ms Streisand in supporting The Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Cole T., Drew C., A-Rod & Brit T
"From the end of the auction to the actual meet and greet...the process was flawless! Thanks to Jen and the Charitybuzz crew for helping to get this opportunity scheduled for my sons and my nephew. I also wanted to thank A-Rod's crew. Thanks Leslie and Adam for helping once we got to Tampa for the spring training game. You helped make these three young baseball players dreams come true! And finally, thanks to Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees for not only donating the tickets to the spring training game, but also giving of your time to sit down and chat with three young boys who look up to you! I will keep bidding on Charitybuzz, the money goes to great charities and the experiences last a lifetime!
