MISSISSAUGA — On July 16 TravelBrands donated one per cent of all sales made to the SickKids Foundation and now the company is thanking all the clients, partners, travel agents and suppliers who made the day a success.
Frank DeMarinis, CEO, TravelBrands, says: “Our goal was to bring the travel community together to raise awareness and funds for a great cause and I believe it was surpassed. It brings me great pride that we can all come together to give back to SickKids. Our third annual donation day is just another step in supporting the advancement of children’s healthcare.”
This year, all proceeds will be contributed towards the SickKids Foundation and Cardiac Operating Room. TravelBrands’ donation supports SickKids’ aspiration of being the leading pediatric and congenital heart disease centre in the world.
In addition to donating a percentage of sales, TravelBrands hosts multiple events year-round to raise awareness and funds for SickKids, including the annual TravelBrands Charity Golf Classic, participation in the Mississauga Dragon Boat Race Festival and a 5km employee walk.
DeMarinis says travel agents can continue donating their Loyalty Rewards points to the SickKids Foundation, and that any Loyalty Rewards donation made between July 16 and Aug. 31, 2019 will be matched by TravelBrands. To donate Loyalty Rewards see travelbrandsaccess.com.
