TPI Raises $10k for Charity
06/07/2011 - Travel Professionals International

WINNIPEG, CANADA – Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s largest network of independent travel consultants, is proud to announce that its staff, associates, and travel industry partners raised CAD10,000.00 between April and May 2011 for the City of Joy Foundation, Mexico.

The City of Joy Foundation offers assistance to many social programs in Mexico including but not limited to food, shelter, and education. The money raised by TPI will be used for a number of these initiatives, including education where it will specifically assist the Mano Amiga School in providing high quality education for over 1,000 pupils from economically sensitive backgrounds.

“We are honoured that TPI chose to support our charity and the money raised will immediately be put to good use in helping those who need it most. We are truly grateful,” said Anita Gallagher, Director, City of Joy Foundation.

As one component of the two-month fundraising effort, TPI associates (and their guests), staff, and travel industry partners took part in a walk-a-thon aboard Royal Caribbean International’s Allure of the Seas during the 2011 TPI Annual Conference.

TPI wishes to thank its staff, associates, and travel industry partners who donated to the campaign, including a special thank you to Thomas Cook Canada, Royal Caribbean International, and Karisma Hotels for their generous donations.

The City of Joy Foundation (Fundación Ciudad de la Alegría) was founded to construct spaces, generate synergies, and strengthen actions in support of institutions which, with love and joy, promote the development and dignity of marginalized individuals and families, thus addressing the most pressing social needs of rapidly growing cities.
