A Give + Get Platform that Rewards Travelers For Making Charitable Donations
Chicago, IL Tuesday, August 2, 2016 – Donda’s House Inc. joins the launch of Kind Traveler, the first ‘Give + Get’ hotel booking platform that transforms travelers into a financial force that benefits communities, the environment, and animals. Travelers ‘give’ to a local or global charity; as reward for their donation, they ‘get’ an exclusive rate to book directly with the world’s best hotels and unique properties. 100% of the donations raised on the Kind Traveler platform go directly to the charities.
Donda’s House is pleased to be chosen by Virgin Hotels Chicago who will encourage guests to send local donations to support our mission to provide youth with free access to the arts. As an organization trying to create a big positive impact on a hyper-local issue, any contributions go a long way in making a difference. Donnie Smith, Executive Director says, “Chicago is a world-class city and it is exciting to know that through this platform, tourists will be exposed to our work & invited to amplify our impact.”
“Our win-win platform offers solutions for everyone,” said CEO & Co-Founder Jessica Blotter. “For travelers, they become warriors for good and support hotels that are making a positive impact in the world – while receiving exclusive hotel rates. For hotels, they cultivate new relationships with cause-minded consumers and take another step towards corporate social responsibility. For charities, they receive 100% of donations and a new, sustainable channel for fundraising.”
A quality we love about Kind Traveler is its desire to educate. According to Phocuswright’s Good Travels research study “three of 10 giving travelers were prompted to volunteer or donate because of something they read, heard, saw or experienced.” Kind Traveler’s blog provides stories that inspire travel while underscoring the importance of giving back, living consciously, and choosing with purpose.
