Travel for a Good Cause

- Kristiana Tarnuzzer



…one of the toughest months to get through in our opinion.  How ready is everyone for Summer and its sunny bliss?  In the meantime, we can wanderlust while we eagerly await its arrival.  If you need more inspiration to book that escape, feel even better doing so using the Kind Traveler platform.  Kind Traveler has 80+ properties supporting 60+ charities (and growing!), each telling a unique story about how they inspire travelers to give back to make a positive impact to the destinations they visit. When there’s an opportunity for a traveler to visit with the hotel and local charity, and see the type of positive impact that’s possible, the passion for the cause grows even stronger.  Here are a few favorites to get your trip planning juices flowing!

Travel for a Good Cause


…for a family-friendly getaway?  Look no further than Terranea Resort in Los Angeles.  When you stay at Terranea Resort and book on Kind Traveler, you are supporting marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation efforts by the Marine Mammal Care Center Los Angeles.  Your $10 donation via booking feeds one sea lion in need for one day!  The gift that keeps on giving, travelers can visit the center 364 days a year -- and for free, though donations are happily accepted.  A great family activity that connects everyone more deeply with the wildlife that make this destination unique. 



…you’d prefer a little R&R, we totally feel that.  For this, another west coast favorite is Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California.  This property is inspiring travelers to practice self-care at its stunning on-site Miraval Spa Monarch Beach, and inspire kindness with Ocean Institute, a local Dana Point charity.  Your $10 nightly donation on Kind Traveler to Ocean Institute will help fund programs that educate 100,000 children, teachers, parents, and visitors annually through over 60 marine science and maritime history programs.

…if you’re craving the energy of a city escape, this partnership with The Lower Eastside Girls Club of New York (LESGC) and The Standard East Village is not to be missed.  LESGC is on a mission to break the cycle of poverty by training the next generation of ethical, entrepreneurial, and environmental leaders in a community that has some of the highest rates of poverty -- only 50 percent of high school students graduate.  During your stay, schedule a tour of LESGC or visit its many student-run social enterprises such as Sweet Things Bake Shop or Girl Made Gift Shop, and feel good doing so knowing your visit goes going towards creating more gender equal opportunities for the girls’ futures! 



…your passport is about to overflow with stamps…in the last six months, the Kind Traveler portfolio welcomed their first Kind Hotels in the Maldives, Paris, Tuscany, Belize, and Jamaica.  So go ahead, rack up those passport stamps knowing each stay contributes to the better of society.
