One per cent of all sales made on July 17 were donated to children’s charity

 

MISSISSAUGA, ON – TravelBrands donated one per cent of all sales made on July 17, 2018 to the SickKids Foundation. Through the support of all clients, partners, travel agents and suppliers, the one-day initiative was a tremendous success.

 

“I would personally like to thank everyone involved in making this day possible,” says Frank DeMarinis, President & CEO, TravelBrands. “I am so proud we are able to come together as a community to give back to those in need, and support SickKids in advancing children’s healthcare.”

 

All proceeds will be contributed towards the SickKids’ Labatt Family Heart Centre. The organization’s donation supports SickKids’ aspiration of being the leading pediatric and congenital heart disease centre in the world. TravelBrands’ goal is to reach the $1 million dollar mark in total donations by September 2018.

 

In addition to donating a percentage of sales, TravelBrands hosts multiple events year-round to raise awareness and funds for SickKids. This includes the annual TravelBrands Charity Golf Classic, participation in the Mississauga Dragon Boat Race Festival and an annual 5km employee walk.

 

Travel agents can continue donating their Loyalty Rewards points to the SickKids Foundation. Any Loyalty Rewards donation made between July 17 and August 31, 2018 will be matched by TravelBrands. To donate Loyalty Rewards, please visit www.travelbrandsaccess.com.
