One of the things we pride ourselves on at Lodgining Interactive is not only our success in the digital marketing industry, but also the importance we place on giving back to the community. There are so many wonderful organizations that are always in need of a helping hand and Lodging Interactive is happy to step in and lend it. What makes the contributions even more special is the consideration given to the employees and their special connection to organizations or charities that they may be involved with. So, not only is there a need fulfilled in the community, but the efforts of the Lodging Interactive team members are also supported.
Over the years, Lodging Interactive has given support to a number of organizations that work to better our communities. These non-profit organizations and educational institutions focus on important needs and issues in our communities. Some of the groups that have received support include, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Homeless Solutions, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and the Alzheimer Foundation of America.
Most recently, for the second year in a row, a generous donation was provided to Beautiful People, a non-profit organization that provides adaptive sports leagues for children with disabilities. Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Warwick, NY, Beautiful People allows children 5 and older to participate in sports, like baseball, basketball and soccer, who otherwise might not be able to take advantage of these activities due to physical and/or developmental disabilities. In addition to providing fun sporting activities, children are also able to work on their socialization skills, coordination, agility, mobility and this all plays a role in increasing their self-esteem. Without the funding from others, Beautiful People would not be able to function and carry out the very important work that they do. This year Lodging Interactive’s contribution will go toward sponsoring the awards for the baseball players and the volunteers that help on the field.
This organization is near and dear to some of our team members, including myself. This is just one of the many reasons I am proud to be a part of this company.
