TravelBrands donates percentage of sales to SickKids Foundation

One per cent of sales made on August 16, 2017 to benefit children’s healthcare

MISSISSAUGA, ON – On August 16, 2017 TravelBrands donated one per cent of all sales to the SickKids Foundation. TravelBrands would like to thank all clients, partners, agents and suppliers who made this one-day initiative possible. The goal was to bring the travel community together to raise awareness and money for a fantastic cause, and TravelBrands believes this goal was surpassed.  

“Through the outstanding support of our travel agents, suppliers and partners, this day was a huge success,” says Frank DeMarinis, President & CEO, TravelBrands. “We are incredibly proud to be able to give back and support SickKids in advancing children’s healthcare.”

All proceeds will be contributed towards the SickKids’ Labatt Family Heart Centre. TravelBrands’ donation supports SickKids’ goal of being the leading pediatric and congenital heart disease centre in the world. With current survival rates of 98.5 per cent, SickKids strives to ensure that all complications associated with heart defects do not stop children from living their lives to the fullest.

Agents still have the opportunity to give back. Until August 31, 2017, agents are invited to donate their Loyalty Rewards points towards the SickKids Foundation and TravelBrands will double the donation. Donations starting at $5 will be matched.

Agents can donate their Loyalty Rewards points towards the SickKids Foundation by visiting the rewards catalog at For more information about the SickKids’ Labatt Family Heart Centre, please visit
