‘IfOnly’ Charity Site Lets You In On Dream Experiences That Benefit Great Causes
Luxury is helping others.

That’s according to IfOnly.com, a website founded by San Francisco-based tech entrepreneur, Trevor Traina, which offers a curated selection of unique experiences for its members to buy or bid on — with proceeds going to charity.

Launched less than a year ago, the charitable startup supports more than 150 causes, while providing a wide array of experiences for its members to choose from.

Experiences range from a VIP trip to see Justin Timberlake in London (starting at $5,000) or meeting Robin Thicke at the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Opening Day ($500), to attending a taping of “Late Night With Seth Meyers” or seeing a show during Motley Crue’s farewell tour — all of which benefit the American Red Cross.

For every item or experience sold, a donation is made to each celebrity’s choice of charity.

“Philanthropy is part of my family DNA, and IfOnly was first conceived as a charitable venture,” Traina told SFGate.com last year. “But I’m also interested in the for-profit model. I’d noticed people seem more intrigued by experiences than things. And it hit me: The future of luxury is not more cashmere sweaters. It’s experiences that mark our milestones we share with friends and family.”
