Four times a year, CREST holds travel auctions via Charitybuzz. These online auctions feature travel packages from our Platinum Sponsors and other responsibly- and sustainably-operated travel companies. The proceeds of these auctions are an integral part of making sure we can continue our programs to advance responsible travel and daily operations as a non-profit.
Bidding on one of our packages not only allows you to enjoy a unique responsible travel experience but also allows you to have a positive impact on the places you visit.
