Proceeds To Benefit Aircraft Donation Program
Build A Plane -- a non-profit organization which helps teachers
teach science, technology, engineering and math by building real
airplanes -- announced recently the opening of a new auction
program for all aviation enthusiasts.
Beginning Friday, November 23, those logging on to the Build A
Plane website will have the option to click on a red "eBay
Auction!" button, to bid on a wide variety of one-of-a-kind items
-- from aviation collectibles to tropical vacations, and personal
VIP dinners with top aviation celebrities.
New items will be regularly added to the Build A Plane e-Bay
auction site, making this an on-going fundraising effort. All
proceeds go directly to support the organization’s charitable
aviation education efforts.
“This is a great
way to support kids getting more exposure to aviation,” said
Build A Plane's Lyn Freeman. “Build A Plane has more than 70
projects in schools across the United States where kids are
learning by building real airplanes.
"The proceeds from this unique fundraiser, something totally new
and different for aviation, will help us continue to help
kids,” Freeman added.
Build A Plane solicits aircraft donations, and then redirects
those airplanes to high schools and youth groups across the country
at no charge. Build A Plane is also working in formal partnership
with the FAA to promote aviation education and is part of the
Thomas W. Wathen Foundation, recently designated as a National
Center for Aviation Education.
