Wyndham Worldwide Gives Back on Their 10 Year Anniversary
Friday, August 12, 2016
To celebrate 10 years since the beginning of Wyndham Worldwide, the company announced a new global philanthropic partnership with Save the Children.
Since 2006, Wyndham Worldwide has been bringing together some of the most iconic travel brands through core values and a united vision to create great travel experiences for all types of people. They pride themselves in the strong mission to serve travelers in every way possible, and their dedication to this has made them a true hospitality powerhouse.
“For the past ten years philanthropy and volunteerism has been central to our culture and we have consistently strived to do business in a way our associates, partners and shareholders can be proud of,” said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and chief executive officer. “It made sense to us to celebrate our anniversary with a focus on serving others, especially children and families.”
Save the Children is a leading global non-profit organization that focuses solely on the wellbeing of children around the world. Wyndham Worldwide will support Save the Children through their partnership by sponsoring workplace giving events, disaster relief and emergency fund raising, and the promotion of the Save the Children signature child sponsorship program. Wyndham Worldwide has already made an initial donation of $250,000 which will go towards educational programs and helping transform more than 7,5000 with learning materials. This will reach 250,000 students across the globe.
Wyndham Worldwide looks forward to how this partnership will make an impact on a global scale. The company has consistently been committed to community support and volunteerism since the beginning with programs such as “Wish Day,” which gives associates a paid day off to volunteer in the community with a company match for charitable donations. They also support Christel House International, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Special Olympics, community food banks, and more.
