"Travelers have the opportunity to vote with their travel dollars to make a positive difference to local and global communities by supporting businesses focused on social and environmental impact," said CEO Jessica Blotter. "Travelers can now double their charitable impact with 28 charities when they book with participating hotels on Kind Traveler this holiday season."
Kind Traveler is positioned to make an impact on both a global and a local level. Kind Traveler's goals are purposefully aligned with the United Nations' Global Goals for sustainable development: preventing poverty and hunger, protecting the planet, and promoting wellbeing for individuals and animals. Kind Traveler aims to tackle these global issues through their network of global charities including The Salvation Army, Make-A-Wish, American Red Cross, World Food Program USA, WildAid, Arbor Day Foundation, Global Green USA, The Keep A Breast Foundation, Project AWARE®, Animal Defenders International, The Gentle Barn, Little Kids Rock, and Bright Pink.
On a local level, when a hotel joins the platform, Kind Traveler helps them to facilitate an alliance with a local charity. This gives travelers the ability to address hyper-local issues through its network of local charities including Surfrider Foundation Miami Chapter, Feeding South Florida, Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood, 2 Hands 2 Cans, Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley, Pacific Marine Mammal Center, Donda's House, StreetWise, City Harvest, Community Housing Partnership, San Francisco SPCA, Telluride Foundation, Raymond Gardiner High School Turks & Caicos, and Fundación Brisas.
"Kind Traveler provides a wonderful opportunity for our guests to feel good by giving back," says Hotel G Director of Sales and Marketing Charleen Murphy. "We are so proud to be a part of the 'Double Your Impact' campaign, as it's an ideal way for us to support 28 incredible charities and our guests who give by their matching donations."
