Tickets.com’s T.Cares Program Helps Raise Funds for the Princess Poppy Rainbow Appeal for Lifesaving Treatment
The parents of a six-year-old girl with stage 4 cancer…
A “let’s dream big!” kind of idea, born in a small conference room, has evolved into a multi-organizational effort that has taken off like wildfire. From working with Major League Baseball Teams to popular venues, together we’re investing in our communities while striving to become a model of possibility. Whether it’s raising money for cancer research by cycling from London to Amsterdam, participating in events hosted by the Disabled Surfers Association of Australia, or auctioning tickets to a sporting event that benefits a local school in the US, we as a company, and as a family, are dedicated to making impacts to communities around the world.
Our most recent initiative for T.Cares transpired while chatting about how we can utilize our position in the ticketing industry to give back. The concept of “No Ticket Wasted” was created. How often do seats go unused at an event that others would give the world to go to? We wanted to create extraordinary experiences for families and individuals facing various challenges in life but wanted to do more than just give them a ticket to the event. Ideas were flowing on how we could take this idea from a concept to reality and begin to change the world one experience at a time.
Our relationships with venues has given us the unique ability to create a once in a lifetime experience that goes beyond the ticket. This program has allowed individuals and their families to go onto baseball fields to meet their heroes, has given them VIP treatment and exclusive behind-the-scenes access to top tier artists, all while making sure we together create an experience they would never forget.
Within a few months of the launch of our program T.Cares, and in collaboration with our clients, we have been able to partner with a number of worldwide charitable organizations to create incredible experiences for individuals around the globe. Some of the incredible organizations are Shriners Childrens Hospitals, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and the Special Olympics.
