Travel Tip: Travel With a Heart
And this tough year has been no exception.
The Rabbit Hill Inn is best-known as a country house in Vermont, but it’s
quietly rolled out a monthly package for those hit by the economic crisis. The
Pink Slip Getaway promotion gives away a free two-night stay to travelers who
have been unemployed for more than six months.
Even airlines get involved. For example, United’s Eat for Good program means
that with every purchase of an in-flight snack box, the airline will donate $1
toward hunger relief efforts.
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, there are several promotions
Mandarin Oriental hotels has launched its Spa for a Year program where guests
can enter a raffle to win a year’s worth of spa therapy. All proceeds go toward
the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
And lastly, this is a really cool concept: For the first time ever, the Susan G.
Komen Race for the Cure is traveling to Jerusalem.
The race will take place just outside of the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem,
bringing together all faiths and nationalities for a purpose.
