Dallas (June 5, 2012) -CheapCaribbean.com, the number one U.S. website dedicated to Caribbean and Mexico travel, today announced a nationwide sponsorship of Make-A-Wish, a global organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
“One of CheapCaribbean.com’s core values has always been to give thanks by giving back. We see this sponsorship as an opportunity to further bless our local community and destinations we serve,” said Josh Paine, CEO of CheapCaribbean.com. “While our associates have always strived to make a difference where they live and work, this gives us the reach to make an even bigger impact.”
This is the first national cause-related sponsorship the travel company has supported. All three of CheapCaribbean.com’s offices in Dallas, Tex., Doylestown, Penn., and Phoenix, Ariz. will work with local Make-A-Wish chapters to grant travel wishes for children and their families. The company will also donate travel packages as auction items for fundraising events and make a minimum donation of $50,000 to the charity.
“Since we opened our doors, we have made service a part of who we are and what we stand for,” said Paine. “We want our customers to not just be aware of our efforts, but also get involved and help make children’s wishes come true.”
In the coming months, CheapCaribbean.com will share opportunities for customers and business partners to get involved, starting with the opportunity to add donations to Make-A-Wish during the booking process or make a direct donation at CheapCaribbean.com Sponsors Make-A-Wish.
“We are happy to have CheapCaribbean.com and its associates join us in granting the wishes of these courageous children.” said David A. Williams, president and chief executive officer of Make-A-Wish America. “This gives children the opportunity to explore the beach and the ocean while spending quality time with their families. We are excited to work with CheapCaribbean.com to help children make their wishes come true.”
