NEW YORK, April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you ready to change the world? Travel expert and founder of The Points Guy (TPG) Brian Kelly invites you to make cash, points and miles donations in support of the PeaceJam foundation through Points for Peace. Points for Peace is a one-of-a-kind campaign that connects TPG readers and partners with a global organization close to Kelly's heart. This unique program will not only allow you to donate money and points, but your expertise in maximizing them to create a positive change in the world.
PeaceJam uses the teachings of 13 Nobel Peace Prize winners to mentor youth around the world as well as engage young people in social action projects that directly impact their communities. Its goal is to raise the next generation of peacemakers. Over one million youth have participated in PeaceJam programs across Asia, Africa and the Americas. Kelly serves as an ambassador to PeaceJam and has devised the Points for Peace campaign as an innovative way to get readers and TPG partners involved.
"Having recently spent time with incredible PeaceJam members in Ghana and South Africa, and seeing what they accomplished, I was deeply inspired to share this work with our readers and partners, many of whom have traveled to the countries involved," said Kelly. "PeaceJam empowers everyday people to become leaders for change, it's an exciting and energizing cause that our readers can relate to," he added.
Launching on April 13th, 2016, you will be able to view the Points for Peace campaign video on The Points Guy website and YouTube channel. For complete information on the program and how you can get involved, visit http://thepointsguy.com/peace
The funds raised in the Points for Peace campaign will help bring Nobel Prize winners and year-round PeaceJam programs to five countries including Ghana, Guatemala, South Africa, East Timor and India, in turn impacting the lives of thousands of youth and their communities. All donations will support PeaceJam youth-leadership conferences, life-changing weekends where hundreds of youth work directly with visiting Nobel Peace Prize winners to inspire change in themselves, their communities and the world. Focusing on a range of social justice issues, these conferences are followed by year-round training and support for education and service projects. Highlights from these conferences will be shown on upcoming episodes of TPGtv, the recently launched web series that takes readers on Brian Kelly's globe-trotting adventures using frequent flyer miles and credit card points.
For added incentive, The Points Guy is offering once-in-a-lifetime travel opportunities for readers to join him on the journey to each of these five countries.
