TravelBrands announces donation opportunity to advance children’s healthcare

TravelBrands Loyalty Rewards points can now be donated to SickKids

MISSISSAUGA, ON – TravelBrands cares about children’s health. 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.

Each year, TravelBrands conducts a number of events with employees and partners to raise money and awareness to SickKids. This includes an Annual 5km Employee Walk, participation in the Mississauga Dragon Boat Race Festival and the Annual TravelBrands Charity Golf Classic. In 2016, TravelBrands raised $182,000, rounding out a total of $447,000 donated to the SickKids Foundation over the past three years.

All net proceeds will be contributed to the SickKids’ Labatt Family Heart Centre. These funds will support its goal of being the leading pediatric and congenital heart disease centre in the world. SickKids also assists in ensuring that all complications from being born with a heart defect do not stop its tiny patients from living full lives.

“Approximately 98.5 per cent of SickKids heart patients survive,” says Frank DeMarinis, President & CEO, TravelBrands. “This incredible accomplishment is something we hope we can continue to support through our annual donations and help increase survival to 100 per cent!”

The TravelBrands Loyalty Rewards program has been active since 2010. Agents are able to collect points and redeem them for various rewards including merchandise, travel, gift cards and the ability to donate to foundations and charities such as SickKids. Agents have the opportunity donate $5, $10, $25 or more using their Loyalty Rewards points and TravelBrands will double their donation until August 31, 2017.
