Arbor Day Foundation Partners with Kind Traveler To Empower Travelers To Do Good


A Give + Get Platform that Rewards Travelers For Making Charitable Donations

Lincoln, Neb. (August 2, 2016) — The Arbor Day Foundation has partnered with Kind Traveler, the first 'Give + Get' hotel booking platform that transforms travelers into a financial force that benefits communities, the environment and animals. Travelers 'give' to a charitable option, one of which is the Arbor Day Foundation; as reward for their donation, they 'get' an exclusive rate to book directly with the world's best hotels and unique properties. 100% of the donations raised on the Kind Traveler platform go directly to the charities.

"The Arbor Day Foundation is pleased to offer our members and supporters an additional way to become stewards of our nation's forests," said Dan Lampe, President, Arbor Day Foundation.

"Our win-win platform offers solutions for everyone," said CEO & Co-Founder Jessica Blotter. "For travelers, they become warriors for good and support hotels that are making a positive impact in the world – while receiving exclusive hotel rates. For hotels, they cultivate new relationships with cause-minded consumers and take another step towards corporate social responsibility. For charities, they receive 100% of donations and a new, sustainable channel for fundraising."

A quality we love about Kind Traveler is its desire to educate. According to Phocuswright's Good Travels research study "three of 10 giving travelers were prompted to volunteer or donate because of something they read, heard, saw or experienced." Kind Traveler's blog provides stories that inspire travel while underscoring the importance of giving back, living consciously, and choosing with purpose.
