Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
MISSISSAUGA — TravelBrands is giving back to those who need it most – kids.
The company has announced that it will donate 1% of all sales made on July 16 to the SickKids Foundation, for the third consecutive year. To date, TravelBrands has raised over $1 million for the Foundation.
“This year, our donations will directly support SickKids and their Cardiac Operating Room,” said Frank DeMarinis, President & CEO, TravelBrands. “Our goal is to help kids and families in need. We are calling on the entire travel community to come together and support this worthwhile initiative.”
This one day of donating profits complements other initiatives TravelBrands participates in to raise money and awareness for SickKids. These include an annual 5-kilometre employee walk, the Mississauga Dragon Boat Race Festival, and the annual TravelBrands Charity Golf Classic.
All net proceeds will be donated to the SickKids Foundation, where funds are used to support its goal of being the leading pediatric and congenital heart disease centre in the world.
Travel agents can also donate their Loyalty Rewards points to the SickKids Foundation, with TravelBrands matching any Loyalty Rewards donation made between July 16-Aug. 13, 2019.
Travel partners, suppliers and clients are encouraged to book through TravelBrands on July 16 to contribute to this important cause. To book or donate go to travelbrandsaccess.com.
